“The unexamined life is not worth living. ”― Socrates
If you had your life to live all over again, without a doubt, you would achieve much more than you have achieved thus far. You have so much potential within you than you can ever begin to imagine. What you have achieved thus far, is only a tip of the iceberg of what is possible for you.
Appreciate and be happy with what you have and what you are but, don’t settle. The excitement of life comes from the expectation of something new and different. Predictability kills excitement and creativity. Nelson Mandela said, “There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” When you settle, you kill the spark and you miss out on what you could’ve been. He further said, “After climbing a great hill. One only finds that there are many more hills to climb.” So, when you achieve some goal you set for yourself, you realize that there’s more out there then you initially thought. If you never try, you’ll never know what you are capable of.
Why wait for great people to come and change the world if you have a seed of greatness within you to do the same in your own special way. Settling deprives you and the world from greatness. It’s time you stop being a fugitive from your own greatness and the highness that is within you. It’s time to show up, yes, it’s show time. Don’t cheat the world of your contribution, give it what you’ve got! Let’s do this!
