Shad Fever

Sunil Bali: “When you get a small stone in your shoe, how quickly do you remove it?
I suspect you take off your shoe fairly quickly? Similarly, when you’re caught in the rain, you quickly put up your umbrella or get out of the rain. From the day we’re born we’re programmed to change anything we find uncomfortable: babies cry when they need to be winded, are hungry or need their nappy changing. But when it comes to our work and the workplace, we’re more likely to grimace and bear it. Why? More often than not, because we might fail or get rejected if we stay true to our conviction and take authentic action to disrupt the status quo. But it’s when authenticity and enthusiasm ooze from your every pore, that you become attractive and attract all the people and resources you need to succeed. When asked what’s the best piece of advice he’s ever given to his children, Roald Dahl replied, “Its so important to be an enthusiast in life. Above all become passionate. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” When it comes to their work, the likes of Branson, Buffet and Gates haven’t compromised. They’ve remained engrossed, bubbling with energy and enthusiasm. Criticism and failure have caused no more than a ripple in their teacup. And talking of tea, cakes with artificial cream, toast with artificial butter, plastic flowers, plastic people ….. Life’s too short.”

It was Shad (Elf – fish) fever down at Umgeni River Mouth this morning. I wasn’t sure where to go shoot at 05:30 and then thought that I hadn’t shot this location a lot so off to Umgeni it was. There were no clouds until just after sunrise when S-Westerly I think started pumping and made it a little interesting (just in the nick of time).

“A turning point seems like it comes out of nowhere. But in reality, it’s built slowly, little by little, until you get to a point where it just seems like huge growth comes out of nowhere. Breakouts always seem like that until you look closer at the history and you see all the hard work that went into it. It’s not the breakout point that matters. It’s the consistency of putting in the hard work that matters because that will help continue the growth after the turning point” ~ Brian Kim

“Within you is the hidden God. Within you is the immortal Soul. Within you is the inexhaustible spiritual treasure. Within you is the ocean of bliss. Look within for the happiness and peace which you are seeking for in vain in perishable sensual objects. Rest peacefully in God within and enjoy eternal bliss” ~ Sri Swami Sivananda
