Have you ever heard the saying -"How do you eat an elephant? And the answer is, one bite at a time."
It is commonly used to give advice when tackling big goals and huge problems in life.
When you think about it, it is quite a wise saying. After all, you could never eat a whole elephant in one bite, not even a baby one, could you?
When we use analogies in our everyday life, it can help us to look at things from a different perspective, and often that is all it takes to help us to heal, achieve a goal, or find some peace.
Just look at things in a different way. See the other point of view.
The most important thing to remember is to make sure that you enjoy every bite!
Don´t get bogged down in the specifics, or you will forget to enjoy the moment.
What gets overlooked is that while we get satisfaction out of the end goal - in this case, eating the elephant, the enjoyment, pleasure, and excitement is in the journey - or in this case, eating the elephant.
Have you ever planned a holiday? Do you remember the excitement every time you thought about it? What you would do? What you would see? Then the holiday was amazing, and you got to experience it all before, during, and after.
The holiday itself was the goal, but the pleasure you got from the planning, the expectation, and then ultimately, from the memory too, well..... what can I say?
If you have never experienced this phenomenon, I urge you to try it.
Take time out to imagine and dream before you try to eat the elephant in one bite.
Think in pictures. Make them as big , as bold, and as colourful as you can, and then watch what happens!
You Got This.
