Never Settle For Second Best9:33 AM
Never Settle For Second BestWe have always planned and wanted what's best for us. Nobody wakes up in the morning and seeks to make the worst decision and make his life as miserable as he could.
We all have dreams. We all have aspirations.
Remember when you were a kid full of dreams, and believed that you will live in that 3-story house you drew on a paper?
Why most people cannot and will not turn their aspirations and goals into reality, I could enumerate a few reasons. But, the most common mistake we subconsciously make is that we settle.
We settle for second best.
We settle for what is comfortable.
We settle for what is easy.
We settle for what we think is best for us and what other people say we deserve.We choose not to pursue that dream we have always wanted; to be a renowned chef, to travel or perform, because we have settled to just dream. We have become too content. We have settled for what is good enough.
Or maybe we have changed priorities along the way.
Or we have lost hope after five rejections.
Or we think we're too old or too late to pursue a certain dream.
Or maybe the people close to us discouraged us and made us believe that we will not amount to it. And we believed them more than we believe ourselves.
Or maybe, we have better reasons to sacrifice our own dreams to give way to the dreams of those we love. In that case, I'd like to salute you for your selflessness. You are an unsung hero. The wind beneath their wings.
It is okay to be thankful for what is there. Contentment is key to achieving peace of mind.It is not okay however, to settle for what is there knowing that you can do more, give more and be more.
If I could give my younger self a piece of advice when it comes to chasing dreams, it is this:
You were made to do great things. Never settle for second best.
