We’ve all been there before.
In that place where things feel stagnant.
You want to change, but you can’t muster the focused energy to do it.
Maybe it’s a new profession you’re considering.
Maybe you’re still trying to lose those same 10 pounds.
Maybe you need to expand your social circle.
The reason these changes are often the hardest is because they are not uncomfortable enough.
Your Spirit might be telling you that you need to go in a different direction professionally, but your current job might not be “that bad”.
Losing 10 pounds would drastically improve how you feel about your appearance, but you feel “OK” with how you look now.
The people you hang around aren’t really doing much with their lives and tend to be complainers but you’ve been friends for a long time so it’s easy to justify keeping them around.
It was Jim Collins who pointed out that “Good is the enemy of great.
And that is one of the key reasons why we have so little that becomes great.
We don’t have great schools, principally because we have good schools.
We don’t have great government, principally because we have good government.
Few people attain great lives, in large part because it is just so easy to settle for a good life.”
There is a decision to be made.
Settle for “just ok” or muster the courage to go for something greater?
Neither is necessarily better.
Many people are perfectly fine with lukewarm living.
With change comes risk and familiar feels safe, even if it isn’t.
It’s really about what you want out of life.
If you decide to go for the greater, here’s one way to get started:
Throw out your underwear.
I’m talking about the ones you KNOW you’ve had too long.
The ones that are hanging on for dear life.
Think of them as representing the mediocrity you’ve been settling for.
Replace them with items that make you feel confident and sexy.
Make a conscious decision to choose something new and fresh every day.
Yep, the momentum for change can start right in your top drawer.
