To assume everyone would know what the Excalibur is would be a rock stuck-up mistake from my part. The Excalibur is most probably thee most famous sword in history, yeh who cares about Lightsabers right?
The Excalibur is the magical sword that King Arthur alone managed to remove from the stone.
Don’t you be scared, I’m not going to quote pages from my favourite comic strip. The Excalibur simulates a very significant struggle we all should go through in order to reach that so desired Genius Level.
In the movie King Arthur, countless number of people tried countless number of times to remove the magical Sword from the stone, and attempt after attempt no one was able to remove it. Now draw a line for a moment, try thinking like there is no box and only then you will start to notice that the Excalibar that could not be removed from the stone represents everyday hardships. You will then start to see that the everyday ‘struggles’ you go through are just like the sword stuck in the stone, it is never easy to draw them out of the stone. Hell it might even take months or the famous 21 day habitual build up period to concur whatever shortcoming you are facing.
Either it be trouble waking up in the morning, trouble focusing in class, trouble concentrating in the library, trouble getting yourself to a desired discipline level, trouble coming up with brilliant innovative ideas for your marketing team, trouble getting your business out there; it could be anything that you want to achieve, one thing remains clear with these, the process of concurring these troubles will not be easy, might even be difficult or take years to accomplish. Picture all those troubles as the stone that is locking you in and holding you back from realising you full potential.
You may choose to give up but that only means you remain entrapped to the stone and live a very limited life of regrets and routine.
Unleash the King within and do all things possible given your drive and motivation that is well within you to draw yourself out of the stones that are holding you back.
Pressa Pusha Panda!!
Once you fully out of all things holding you back you will then realise you can wield yourself swiftly and cut through all opportunities you have been waiting for, just like the Excalibur that was useless while entrapped in the rock, once King Arthur removed is from the stone it became the most powerful sword the world has ever witnessed. Your best is awaiting……………………
