Are you afraid of stepping outside of that boundary? Well, you are not alone, many people live with this fear. They live their lives doing what is expected and practical; nothing more. Toeing the line, they do their best to be loyal, without disappointing those around them; never challenging themselves or pushing the envelope. Moving out a comfort zone is a terrifying concept so they settle with being conformable, or just okay. But…you may ask, “What is wrong with that?”
Remember, there are 5 levels of thought or mindset. People who are at the third level, the middle value, are called normal: they know what they can manage and have decided their limitations. But the very next level of mindset is where success begins and it only takes a little effort to get there. Simply challenging ourselves moves us to this second mindset level, where we find most successful people who continually strive for more than the normal or mundane. Of course, this mindset that craves challenges can land one into uncomfortable situations. It often pushes us beyond our threshold but creates a great self in the end.
People settle with the third mindset or normal level because it is comfortable and we naturally have a morbid fear of failure and disappointment. This fear is generally stronger than our will to meet and overcome burdens so we conclude, this is who I am, at settle at level three. To protect ourselves, we compromise with the situation and settle into the suburbs of mediocrity. We tell ourselves that everyone cannot be exceptional, I guess I am one of the normal ones.
If we think about a dead fish, it drifts with to the flow of the water current. However, live fish are not driven by the current, they swim against it. Dead fish don’t swim, they just drift. We can either choose to drift through life, never challenging the strong current of our circumstance. Or we can live like fish who constantly oppose that current and refuse to be driven by it. Dead fish or live fish, the answer to that question is in the mindset that we possess and ultimately determines our quality of life.
Are you a live fish or a dead fish?[/text_output][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/3″][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Recent Posts” alignment=”left” main_heading_font_size=”desktop:20px;” main_heading_font_family=”font_family:Oswald|font_call:Oswald”][/ultimate_heading][recent_posts type=”post” count=”3″ orientation=”vertical” fade=”true” offset=”” category=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDc3R5bGUlM0UlMEEuZW50cnktdGh1bWIlMjBpbWclMjAlN0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBtYXgtaGVpZ2h0JTNBJTIwNDAwcHglM0IlMEElN0QlMEElMEEucG9zdC1jb250ZW50JTIwJTdCJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwdGV4dC1hbGlnbiUzQSUyMGp1c3RpZnklM0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjB0ZXh0LWp1c3RpZnklM0ElMjBpbnRlci13b3JkJTNCJTBBJTdEJTBBJTNDJTJGc3R5bGUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row]
