Icebergs in Greenland can reach up to 300 feet high above sea level. But in fact, 85 to 90 percent of them are unseen, artic gargantuan lying just beneath the surface of the icy waters. That is why we use the expression “that’s just the tip of the iceberg” when speaking about something unseen and huge but undisclosed because what one sees is only a speck of what is there.
Imagine how much there is concealed beneath the water surface when you look at a vast iceberg. You can only see, at most, 10 or 15 percent of it. You can observe this better with smaller icebergs because you can get closer to them, and therefore it is easy to see just how massive the volume of ice there is underwater. Because so much of the iceberg lies beneath the water’s surface, large icebergs require up to three or four years to melt.
Greenlandic icebergs can float as far south as to the sea outside New York City before they finally disappear. The famous ice, which the Titanic hit to its demise, traveled roughly 400 miles southeast from Greenland. Some Icebergs from Greenland have floated as far south as Bermuda, but that is not usually the case. (the above information comes from greenland-travel.com)
Now you may be thinking, what does frozen water in the North Pole have to do with you and me in our business aspirations?
Well, I know that we are all eagerly awaiting the newly revived CDAP to open. Still, the opening of the CDAP is just “the tip of the iceberg” — a small piece of the incredible complexities of the entirety of Compumatrix. It is just the beginning of a fantastic future for all who take advantage of the platforms they offer to help grow our own successful business.
So why wouldn’t a person take advantage of a lucrative business opportunity? There may be a few underlying reasons lying deep down under the surface as to why. People may not even be fully aware of the deep things that might be holding them back.
Consider this list of ten reasons from lifehack.org on why people don’t reach their potential:
Creating Vague Goals – Someone will say, “I want to lose weight.” Instead, they should be much more specific and say, “I want to lose 10 pounds in 2 months!”
Lacking a higher purpose – The higher purpose of a task motivates you when the initial excitement wears off. Having a higher purpose gets you through when things get tough.
Procrastinating – “I will just do it later” is not in the vocabulary of highly successful people.
Not Taking Responsibility – When things go wrong, which often they can, people always look for someone to blame instead of merely being responsible for the work they have to do and doing their best.
Listening to People Who Discourage You – How many times have people given up their goals because other people decided those opportunities were not worth going after?
Starting Too Many Projects – Better to finish a few things than to create many things and not complete any of them.
Being Negative – Often, people don’t even attempt to try something because they think about all the possible negative things. They focus on all that might go wrong instead of being optimistic about a good opportunity and where it could lead.
Watching Too Much TV – Of course, it’s OK to watch TV. But if it’s not getting us any closer to our goals and taking precious time away from us when we could be learning and growing our business skills, then we might need to re-think the amount of time we spend doing that.
Being Selfish – People are usually only interested in pursuing something that will only benefit themselves. The road to success always is paved with trying to assist others along the way.
Surrounding Yourself with People Who Don’t Reach Their Goals – You are who you hang around. “Walk with the wise and grow wise” (Proverbs 13:20). There is a potent natural desire in us to be accepted by others, and often we compromise our convictions just to fit in.
The soon opening of the newly revised CDAP will be a history-changing day for your life and mine! It is being created to be our “one-stop-shopping center “and will hold every tool needed in user-friendly formats. Everything, all in one place, to bring a one-of-kind product to the world! A fantastic, prosperous future for so many who have waited a very long time for it. I encourage you to familiarize yourself and explore the massive “iceberg” of our company and take full advantage of what Compumatrix offers. I can’t wait to experience this new beginning with all of you and scope the vast depths of all that is waiting for us to share!
