Focus and Determination

Long days, long nights: this is how we live. If you want to be alive and even thrive in this world of the costs, you will have to focus, work harder, keep your head up and claim success when the time is right. Take your time to find out what you want, because society tries to kick you out of balance and off route all the time. The key is to know what you want. Set SMART goals and make SMART decisions, all day long. You must do everything you can to make it happen; no one else will do it for you. Once you know where you want to go and find the focus and determination to get it no matter the costs, the route will find you.


Altijd onderweg
gelukkig wel steeds vaker op de zaak
vele zaken in de maak
de showroom bleef nog heel eventjes op gesloten
deze maand wat vaker open
zonnetje begint te komen
en begint het allemaal te lopen
stapje voor stapje loop je uiteindelijk zo naar boven
het gaat er om waar je wil komen
en of je wilt werken aan je dromen.

The Final Push of the Year

Proud to say the dots are put on the I today. The WALKINSTAIRS board has been put up on our very first official store called the SHOWROOM. You can find the showroom in Waalwijk, in the Stationstraat at number 76. In the showroom, you will find a variety of brands from the internet, combined with the WALKINSTAIRS brand! Since the final push of the year happened today, we are done for this year. In January, we will continue building. Let’s finish up the old and see you in the new!

Point on the i

Yeah, looking towards the end of year, you could start wondering about the year thus far. What you set out to do this year, might be closer then you think. It could be so close, that with a point on the i here and there, the result can be here, in this year. You need to find the proper tasks that are on your priority and work your ass off to make it happen. As of today, there are 16 days left on the calendar for this year. It is time to make it to the final push. Finish what was started at the beginning of this year. 

There Are Rules

If you want to achieve something in this world, in this life, you can not do it by keep following your own rules. You need to understand what you want to achieve first, and of course, you will aim big. Next, you fail bigger, as you did follow your own rules and you did not understand the way the game works. After failing for a thousand and one times, you finally start to get a grip on the unwritten rules of the game. Because, even if you keep your optimism through all the hardships, you need to follow the rules of this world in order to make your dreams reality and actually make something out of life. Against all odds, we will.

Yeah, it is.

“Good morning, Alphie!”, Thomas Shelby saluted his partner in crime. “Yeah, it is.”, Alphie Solomons replied. He did not automatically accepted the proposition that it was a good morning; he first thought about it to see if it really was a good morning. That day it was. Some days it is not. Circumstances can make it hard to see everything in the right perspective and it took the boys some time to get the mindstate back on ready and positive. After a great night sleep, the day is here to say Good Morning. Simply because yeah, it is a good morning!

The Next Day

It all still seems to be so complex, and yet it can be simple. Looking at situations in the past reminds me how it all could have gone differently, yet it is only the way ahead that counts; the next day. There you can do it differently, with new actions that you can try. Plenty of opportunities if you know where to look, yet you have to make enough money to take care of your costs side of things. If you got that handled, you can work towards better things, yet it will always be a rough process, as the more pressure you take on, the harder the battle. If you would 10x your monthly income as a goal, you need to change strategy and tactics in order to get there, so you find yourself thinking differently. It doesn’t matter anyway, because you can not know what happens tomorrow when the alarm goes off. Do you snooze or do you jump up and out and under the shower? Don’t know yet…

Nothing is Free

After missing a goal or deadline, you start wondering what you have done. You find the problem, in order to have a solution next time. You have to reschedule the goal, but never lower it. You should be prepared. The problem lied in the business modal, as nothing is for free in this world, and many things haven’t been billed over the last few years. Always saw this as investing in learning, and there is nothing wrong with that. Now however, it is time to capitalize on skills acquired and experience gained, in order to make sure the goals set can be brought into reality. Hard lessons are best, even though the process is not fun. Nothing is free.

Mission Impossible

Someday you write about respecting the process. The next day you work towards reaching a goal you really need to happen, but it ended up being simply not doable in this short period of time. Talk about not respecting the process. Everything has its time and you can not force. You can try to push harder, but the process will not allow it. Once that conclusion was reached, the text said; mission impossible, blown off. Time for a resting night, picking up pieces, re-strategize the plan. You can learn every day eh?

Respect the Process

Good things take time to grow, dreams take time to become reality. Once you set out to reach a certain goal, you can make it happen by finishing the process from A to Z. You need to take every step in between, or the process will be corrupted. You must not expect anything, because that is imagining how things should be, and they never do. You only look at the now and handle what is right in front of you. Your goal is set, so keep your patience, respect the process and eventually, you will see how exactly it all turns out.
