This message was on my heart and I decided to share with you guys: Being Comfortable Is The Same As Settling
I often talk about not allowing your fears to control you. I never want to see fear stopping anyone from achieving their goals. While I am not a big fan of fear, the truth is i am scared of settling. It is my number one fear in life (right now). I do not want to remain in the same place in my life for the sake of being comfortable. Being stuck and miserable are symptoms of complacency.
As “they” say misery loves company and that is not the type of company I am trying to keep. You shouldn’t either because misery is contagious. I have seen it show up in my life and the lives of others close to me and it scares me to death. I don’t want to go through life complaining everyday about how much I hate how my life. Looking back on my life and being disappointed on how it turned out is just not acceptable for me. Instead I want to experience as much love and joy as possible.You are not your circumstances.
At any moment you can make the decision to change the game. When i was battling my depression I was fortunate enough to wake up one day feeling sick of my own shit. I realized that I had to take accountability and responsibility for my own actions if I was ever going to see a change in my life. This meant getting out of my comfort zone and walking out on faith. It takes a lot of courage to face your fear and begin your healing but anything is better than misery and depression.Thank God for growth.
Moral of the Story:
Don’t get stuck! Do NOT get comfortable in your own misery. Whatever you hate about your life, sit down and come up with a plan to fix it. Figure out ways to make it better. Anything is possible if you want it bad enough. Start making better decisions and whatever you do DO NOT give up. Everything takes time. You will fall and fail many times before you get it right. Just keep pushing in the right direction, upward and forward, never backwards.
“If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.” – Abraham Maslow
