If you haven’t done anything that seemed impossible at first glance, then read below to know how it feels. But, if you are a successful doer, then you will find the below scenario correlated.
Did anybody ever say the followings to you?
“This task cannot be done.”
“It is next to impossible.”
“It is as impossible as getting water from the desert and sand from the sea.”
Water from the desert and sand from the sea…? The journey is chopped into 9 levels. Each level has its own difficulty and excitement stages.
Let’s start the digging the sand and diving in the ocean at the same time. Compare these levels with any impossible task you ever did or imagine this from a diver’s or digger’s viewpoint going to the bottom.
You are Excited, Enthusiastic
Instigating thoughts of doing something impossible fills you with excitement. The adrenaline does its work. The mind commentary begins! “You are trying something new, going for an adventure”. The brain excites you about what you are going to find out down there. The positive energy kick starts your journey and you feel up and ready for the big run. The ‘Nothing can stop me now’, ‘I will do it’ notions strike your blood current. You are all charged up!
Enjoying the Experience
As it is your first attempt, you will enjoy the experience as novelty always surprises. Positive thoughts surround you and you start thinking the half of the job is done. You got a good start. “Well begun, half done.” You are off to the Next Big Thing! This stage passes on quickly.
Just Going with the Flow, Trying to Adapt
“When in Rome, Do as the Romans Do”. A diver can only go deep in water if he has the right equipment, which will help him adapt in the ocean’s world. So, after all the excitement and thrill, now your efforts of being adaptable start. You are getting in the swing of the things. The novelty hugs you and to feel the warmth you lose yourself behind and accept the gratitude as this is now the only way if you still want the ‘Enjoying the Experience’ to continue.
Graphs Change Patterns
The fun-factor loses its command over you and your real struggle begins. Just like an astronaut, diver, or digger, you don’t feel as you are in your habitat. In the course of adaptation, you have to lose a part of you, otherwise your will be rejected from the path, by the path and your journey will end here. As soon as you lose yourself, you step out of your comfort zone, that’s when things change. The change is discomforting. The discomfort forces you to focus only on the path and the changes in the path. You realize, it’s not a walk in the park now.
Excitement Ends, Adaptation Failure
Everything is new to you and it’s likely to fail in the adaptation process in the first attempt. The feeling of failure ends your excitement because you sense that you have been rejected by the domain. You already lost yourself and now rejected by the realm of the impossibility. You forget about the surrounding. Your only focus is now you. How to keep yourself going even after failing in the alteration process? That’s the only way to survive. You are the minute’s hand of the clock and if you want your life clock tick the right time, change your position after every 60 ticks of the second’s hand. That’s how adaption feels.
