We all have a state of equilibrium that we find ourselves sitting in. An invisible container hindering us from growing. An obsolete state of decay that we just can’t seem to escape from.
So why do we find ourselves cemented in this state you ask?
Well, it’s because we’ve been uncomfortable for so long that we become comfortable with it. Our current place of inconvenience becomes the new norm. We find any action to change course troublesome, or a waste of time, or we have already given up long before. But there’s a good news. It’s not about making big gestures like quitting our jobs and traveling the world with only the clothes on our backs – although it can be. ◕‿◕ It’s more on the gradual persistent steps we take to tread outside.
It’s about deciding what we want to do and doing it – even if it’s hard. It’s about working towards our goal and climbing the ladder one level to the top at a time. It’s about the experience that we gain from traversing down which ever path we choose.
I challenge you to pace forward. Don’t ever be content in where you’re currently at because you are made for greatness. Challenge yourself always. Keep exploring. Keep learning. Keep moving forward!
Now in a practical sense that may mean pushing yourself to over-deliver in work, or making new friends, or taking up new responsibilities. It may be time to say “yes” to excellence and favors from friends or “no” to bad influences and things that harm us. And with time, those little paces forward would reveal to be a hundred miles from where we once were.
