As environmental hurricane rage, it sweeps things off its path. We also encounter some other kinds of hurricanes that pose identical threats in our personal lives. But what prompts these hurricanes? And how can they be avoided? The good news is that hurricanes don’t just happen. They give signals which eventually help in detecting them. From the ocean where they evolve, hurricanes foment with a warm source. If you notice the stages of a hurricane development, they begin with heating up of ocean temperature, then a bad weather, then the storm, and the hurricane. Quite synonymous with how trouble evolve. It begins with a little disagreement, a grudge, some other in betweens, tempers flaring and then the bang (whatever that means). It takes two to tangle, so watch it when it begins to get warm. But that’s the bad side of “hot” though; we want the good side – “to be hot, – like blazing”.
For the purpose of this post, there are two kinds of hurricanes. The one that just happened in the U.S. called Irene (environmental hurricanes) and the one that is currently happening in every other part of the world (personal hurricanes). The former destroy structure while the latter, persons. Both are however identical in the effects they leave behind – a devastating effect. It is fascinating seeing these environmental hurricanes shatter houses and toss cars like cartons, their effects are obviously conspicuous. The personal hurricanes don’t demonstrate their wreckage like the former. They occur on a more regular basis so people think of them as natural.
We are stunned by circumstances at a point in life. Sometimes these personal hurricanes get so tense we think we won’t see the next. Personal hurricanes don’t form from sea beds; sometimes we initiate them by our actions and inaction. Whether these hurricanes come to test us or make us fail, I do not know. But one thing I know, good things fall into place for us when we do well. Disaster happens when we do the opposite. Personal hurricanes require wisdom to handle, or better still avoid.
Intellectuals solve problems; geniuses prevent them – Albert Einstein.Here are some tips you might consider in handling the hurricanes
1. Don’t panic but keep a cool head and be coordinated.
2. Work your senses, get information, and observe your environment.
3. Turn off the warmers and turn on the coolers.
4. Get your speed on. There might be need for take off any moment.
This post was prompted by my observation and comparison of hurricanes with life issues that seem to trouble us. When hit with such personal hurricanes, we should begin with being as calm and coordinated as possible. One sure way to kill a hurricane: Take away its warm source which is what happens when a storm moves over land.
