Dear reader, today we’ll discuss and concentrate on taking one step forward, no matter how small. During last few weeks we kept you posted about Starting-Up, going down the Rabbit Hole, importance of Planning, and many more such topics. However, while doing all that, somewhere we, at 366pi Consulting, were practically implementing and executing many of them, to achieve anything but success. All those time we self-helped and persevered to achieve the smallest bit of success, and we did achieve that.
Our situation was very much like the Hercules and Wagoner story. In case you don’t remember the story, here it’s for you:
A Wagoner was driving his team along a muddy lane with a full load behind them, when the wheels of his wagon sank so deep in the mire that no efforts of his horses could move them. The Wagoner climbed down from his seat and stood beside the wagon looking at it but without making the least effort to get it out of the rut. All he did was to curse his bad luck and call loudly on Hercules to come to his aid. Then, it is said, Hercules really did appear, saying:
“Put your shoulder to the wheel, man, and urge on your horses. Do you think you can move the wagon by simply looking at it and whining about it? Hercules will not help unless you make some effort to help yourself.” And when the farmer put his shoulder to the wheel and urged on the horses, the wagon moved very readily, and soon the Farmer was riding along in great content and with a good lesson learned.
Moral of the Story: Heaven helps those who help themselves.
