People create these irrational excuses that they are not worthy; they are too old, too poor, not educated enough so they settle for second best. People find themselves in a job they didn't want doing something they don’t wanna do because they believe that is their value. We have created a society which is conditioned to accepting what we can get, rather than declaring what we want.
Even in relationships, people settle. Many are afraid of being alone so they attach themselves to these dynamics with partners who do not challenge or bring the best out of them, and vice versa. Too many are quite content being in a convenient relationship that simply plods along on a daily basis, never going anywhere. Take a hard look; is that you?
Don’t be afraid of making decisions. Last time we told you that You Matter. This means that You are important and that You can have anything you want to have if you work for it. Step away from the mind-set of not being worthy and start aiming for the moon. Ignore the people who tell you that you can’t have this or you can’t do that. All that matters is that You as a person are important and You should never settle for second best.
Making decisions will be scary. People are terrified and fearful of change, failure and taking risks but growth does not happen within your comfort zone. The temptation will always be there; to settle for less. This you must overcome. If quitting your job is what it takes, we advocate that. If you need to call time on that relationship (romantic or friend), we support you 100%. If you need to start a new life in a new city, we are here for you all the way.
Excellence is the place where people who refuse to accept mediocrity live. So start thinking differently, start making decisions and start embracing your potential.
