What are you settling for in your life?
Have you ever asked yourself what your settling for in your life?
I want you to just take a moment, it doesn’t have to be a big deep and meaningful moment in your life, but just look around you.
Look at the people around you and have a think about how many of them are just settling?
Probably a hell of a lot more than you may actually think.
Are you one of them, one of those people that are just settling?
Are you one of those people that have settled into an okay relationship?
Maybe you’ve settled into an okay job?
Surrounding yourself and settling with okay friends, all in all creating an okay kind of life.
Why do we do that?
Because settling is nice and comfortable.
Being in that okay job pays the bills, being in that okay relationship stops you from having to live alone. Being in that nice okay life is bloody comfortable.
Settling can also be bloody boring
That doesn’t mean that it’s wrong, if you’re 100% okay with settling then that’s just fine, just make sure you’re happy in that settled life.
But when your living that settled life, that life means you’re sacrificing the chance to have a thrilling life.
A life where there isn’t passion.
There’s nothing that you will do that will be life-changing or unforgettable.
When you live that settled life you’re not willing to take a risk or a chance or step out of that comfort zone.
Living an okay life is not the reason you will risk absolutely everything you’ve got for the smallest chance that something absolutely amazing could happen.
And if it doesn’t happen? At least you can say you tried and you’ll never be left wondering about the ‘what ifs’.
That doesn’t mean that you have to live every minute of your day trying something thrilling or having to live a life that is full-on with no down time, looking for the next adventure.
It’s about not being scared to step out of your comfort zone.
To push through your fears and to try and expand who you are and what you’ve experienced.
It’s just being willing to try.
As the saying goes – “If you want to be successful in this world, you have to follow your passion, not a paycheck”.
