Stick A Toe in First

toe-in-water

I’ve talked to you this week about many things that are good for most people and help them. Some things in life are right for you, and some things in life are bad for you. And, only you know what is good or bad for you. And, you cannot understand that unless you try something that is meant to be good and verifying the results.

There is an 80/20 rule in life, where good things are good for the majority of people, and yet there’s a small portion of the population, for one reason or another that may have an opposite effect. I have friends and family who gets sick every time they take a flu shot. So they do not take those shots. I know some people who have aversions to other things, so they just don’t do them, and that is good for them. 

It is essential to know what works for you and what does not. Then you have to work with those things that work well for you. The thing to remember is that if you’re not sure if something will work for you or not, you have to try it. You don’t do this by diving in head first. You start by sticking in a toe. If whatever your testing feels good and seems to work for you, try a little more. If the thing that you tried gives you adverse effects, then you may want to back away from it. Either way is all right as long as it is your way.

There are many ways to do most things. If one way does not work well for you, you may want to look at alternatives and try another approach. Most importantly do not give up on who you want to be and where you want to go. With everything that is out in the marketplace today, and the ability to reach just about anywhere through the Internet, there are far more ways to get something done than we can imagine.

The biggest thing you should do for yourself is to hone your abilities to research. If you know how to find information, you can find whatever you want or need. Not only that, you will probably find whatever you want or need from multiple resources: multiple sellers, on numerous sites. When you research for things, do not stop at the first item, research what would be best for you.

If you ever need a tip on researching or help trying to find what you’re looking for, please send me a line. You can always get me through the comments section.

Thanks for being with me today. I hope to be with you again soon.

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
