“If you’re not failing every now and then it’s a sign you’re not doing anything very innovative.”
Why would people not try something new to make more income or some make difference in life?
- Is it because you are being contented of what you only have?
- Is it because you are already decided to keep that way?
- Is it because you don’t think you’re good enough?
- Is it because you are afraid of failures?
- Is it because you’re too lazy?
These questions are just some of the factors that needs to be considered, there are also other factors that we need to look to. Below are some of them:
When we are already comfortable of our standing, we tend to stop looking for improvements, we are not growing because our mind is focused on “I’m good now, I’m comfortable and I’m not asking for more”. Really? You may not feel yet until it’s to late. You may not see it right away but comfort can be the silent killer and slow torture.
Being comfortable of where you are right now is fine, but not allowing yourself to be open for improvements is something that I don’t recommend. We should always think the word “What if“. What if your comfortable at your job then you get laid off? Would your comfort be enough to sustain you?
This is the root of settling. If there had to be a grandfather of it all it would be fear. People settle because they are afraid. Afraid of what? They are afraid of failure and success. Afraid of success in their relationships, business, emotionally or even spiritually.
People has a tendency to sabotage their happiness to stay where they are comfortable, even if the outcome leads to a painful outcome. Why have I done this? Because I didn’t acknowledge or know my core beliefs & values. I didn’t challenge the core beliefs that I already had. Many times people are not aware of why they are making the choices they made. They just fall victim to their circumstances and chalk it up to bad luck.
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate.”- Carl Jung
That’s not you today by the way. You now are at least conscious of the fact and it’s going to get even better.
“Belief is an emotion which creates certainty.“- Tony Robbins
If you challenge your current beliefs you’re the minority. I’ve said it many times and I’ll say it many more times. People should hold fast to their beliefs. They fear change because that means leaving behind a part of themselves that they believe is their identity the feeling of certainty makes them feel good, even if it’s not in their best interest. Which means they would have to challenge their current beliefs and their certainty. That would mean facing their real truths and that’s painful. Their mind says, “No way!”
Lots of people would rather be right and experience the feeling of certainty (which feels good) than be rich. I interpret rich as in spirit, hope, inspiration, relationships or financially.
We, as human beings were created for something more. The only thing that holds us back is our fear of what is inevitable – CHANGE. We were meant to surpass our weakness and we can never surpass them by living in fear and in comfort. Never settle for what is less instead settle for what is great and beyond.
