Ross was watching a show the other day, it was on the Black Salamander in Germany.
The Black Salamander I would describe as a black gecko, I guess.
Anyway this Salamander had decided it needed to travel to the mountains.
What struck me is it took him 1 week to travel 500mts
Talk about determination.
As I watched this show it struck me more and more how much, the Salamanders and his journey is like weight loss.
You see it took him 1 week to travel 500mts… not only is it slow going like weight loss but in a week you roughly lose 500gms ( well I do )
He needed to be determined.
He needed to be focused.
On the way to his destination he could have been attacked many times …he was out in the open and anything would have loved to peck him off…. Sound like ppl in your life??
He need to balance himself on the rocky mountains….ever find that life sometimes gets wobbly and you have to balance it all so carefully.
It will take him a long time to get there, with many stops along the way…..this does not mean he is giving up…just that he is revaluing what is important to him and the long trip ahead…..sometimes we need a rest.
Where the Salamander live it is hot and humid and weary….sometimes we can feel like we are weary and sick of it all
I guess what I am trying to say is a little black gecko looking critter can decide he wants to get to the mountain, so he walks on roads and mountains and takes risks that could finish him…but he is determined and focused and takes breaks when he needs to, so he can be mentally tough to do the journey……..
What about you??
Are you like the little black Salamander, gecko like critter, can you make a decision be it weight loss or other things and be focused and determined.
Cause lets face it, no matter what we want from life it will cost…..
Are you willing to pay the price the way the Salamander did???
