Good evening! I hope that you're having a positive and elevated you. Today, I want to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone. Contentment can be both a positive and a negative thing. It can be positive in the sense that you are humble with what you have. When you are humble for what you have, you tend to stress less about the things that you don't have. Therefore, you are able to focus on more positive things, such as your goals. However, it is a negative thing when you allow contentment to become an anchor. By this I mean, you are satisfied with floating in the same place. And as humans, we can only float for so long without becoming weaker, and eventually, drowning. That's why it is imperative to keep swimming.
Meet Anna and Pete. Anna and Pete both started on a raft with nothing but an anchor and a fishing pole. Anna was content with being able to eat, so she tossed her anchor into the ocean. Pete was humble with his objects, used them to his advantage, and continued to move. He fished to eat and soon traded his anchor to a nearby ship. With the motor that was traded, he sped to land and docked. While docked, he fished to eat and earn money. Eventually, he was able to buy a bigger boat, then the world.
The point of these stories are to illustrate the comparison between anchoring yourself down, and dreaming for more. Many times we anchor ourselves because we fear what is beyond the horizon. But today, I want you to step out of your comfort zone. Swim towards the horizon and beyond. Only then, will you discover unimaginable treasures and success.
Have a positive and elevated day.
