Saturday Medidation: You Are The Immigrant, Sniff Around First

Our inspirational thought today is for everyone. Those of us who started new projects, trying our hands on some new things, testing the waters in some new ventures or, you who just  ventured into a new business, are in a new environment; Blessed with new opportunities:
If a new world just opened up for you, always remember that you are the immigrant no matter how well you appear to fit in. And, more times than not, immigrants have a hard time migrating into new worlds without conflict. Your degree may prepare you to perform the task. Your experience and creativity might show you how to enhance the property, but, if your instincts don't tell what's around you, you are bound to be bitten.
Most newbies come in making too much noise to notice the eyes that stare behind the smiles that quickly fade. They enter into conversation when they should be nodding, smiling and listening. In new environments, you must learn to read the body language as well as the new words in the native (those who were there before your arrival) tongue. So much can be communicated that's contrary to what is actually being said.
It is most important that you do a lot of looking and sniffing before you do much barking. Others already know you are there, proceed with caution without looking afraid.
You see, in this life, Fools rush in where the brave dare to thread, and, while it is a wonderful experience to have the gate of new opportunities open, it is naive to think that you are walking into an unbiased environment. So, sniff out your new world before you do too much barking. Knowing who's who will save you from ending up on the menu of some aggressive, attention-starved, attack-prone native who comes out only at night.
Marriage often fails because dating didn't sniff the ground where old bones might be buried. No amount of kindness can alter the fact that the other animals in your new world feel threatened by your arrival- which means you must be prepared to do some sniffing before relaxing.
No matter how friendly the welcome party seems, always know that the bobcats come out at night.
When we enter a new environment, we must prepare ourselves for some kind of adversity.
Have a happy weekend!
