Three things to do while leaving the base, a few days ago, I wrote the first episode of three things an aspiring achiever must do before leaving the base. If you missed it, then you can visit my blog on the attached image to get the first episode.

However, before I proceed, I’ll briefly share another story of things you as an aspiring influencer must consider before getting to the top.
Three things to do while leaving the base.
Never leave the base without adequate preparation
On that blue day, I saw a cockerel, it wasn’t a chick, it was a ‘youth’ chicken, the chicken flew up. Unfortunately, it fell back even before getting to the top of the tree.
𝓗𝓮𝓻𝓮 𝓪𝓻𝓮 𝓯𝓮𝔀 𝓵𝓮𝓼𝓼𝓸𝓷𝓼 𝓽𝓱𝓪𝓽 𝓘 𝓵𝓮𝓪𝓻𝓷𝓽 𝓯𝓻𝓸𝓶 𝓽𝓱𝓮 𝔂𝓸𝓾𝓷𝓰 𝓬𝓱𝓲𝓬𝓴𝓮𝓷:
1️⃣ Never bite more than you can chew. The chicken saw others flew, so it thought it could do the same without following due process.
2️⃣ The effect of the chicken’s flight wasn’t felt around it. The skill that you acquired today, does it affect people around you?
What do you do to influence people around you?

📌 Do not allow fear to hinder you from taking steps towards your land of promise. No matter the number of trials and errors that you face, do not give up.
Keep trying until you finally get to the promised land. Don’t be deceived, if others are fulfilling their purposes, then you too can…Go for it!
However, seeing others celebrate their wins doesn’t mean you should try to copy their results without going through due processes.
Take it a step at a time, please!
