Your decisions have gotten you where you are today…If you don’t like the outcome start making different decisions…It is as easy as that. There is an old saying,
Insanity is making the same decisions over and over again but expecting a different result.
You can never get to where you belong if you continue down the path that got you where you don’t want to be.
Complacency is Evil
Change is hard. I, for one, am a creature of habit. Once I get into a routine I have a hard time breaking out. Familiarity breeds contentment and contentment breeds complacency. If you are complacent there is no chance of success.
Complacency basically says,
“It isn’t worth the effort. Things are just fine the way they are and I have no intention of changing anything.”
That sounds like a loser to me. That sounds like some 35 year old virgin living in his mother’s basement playing video games and eating Doritos.
Life’s To-Do List
I’ll tell you what…Even if I’ve accomplished everything on my life’s to-do list. I couldn’t ever give in. I would go insane if I sat down one day and said,
“Well, Ma, I’ve done it all. I’ve been there and back again…And now I’m going to sit down in this rocking chair and call it a life.”
Man of Accomplishment
That is bull crap. If a man has enough initiative to create any amount of success for himself, I guarantee there will always be something else on the to-do list. Show me a man of means, a man of accomplishment and I’ll show you a man who is never satisfied.
A man of means never finishes the race. There is no quit because there is no end. A man of accomplishment slows down to enjoy the achievements but the race is a life-long competition with himself. To do better…to do more!
Biggest Obstacle to Success
Success is a battle with yourself. You can be your own biggest obstacle or your biggest asset. You have to fight against complacency and always strive for something more and better. Don’t fall into the trap of good enough…Don’t sail off to Someday Isle…Don’t become your own biggest obstacle to success.
