One Step Away: Complacency is a false comfort

By Charles

Hello, I'm back again. Thank you, as always, for your continued support.

Two of the most dangerous words in the English language I have come to find, sometimes the hard way, are the words "good enough." Whatever you're trying to achieve in life always takes commitment, hard work, and a desire to always do better. There is no easy way out.

People may achieve whatever it is that they set out to achieve in life, but I'm sure that they are well aware there are always others who want what they have and will do whatever it takes to knock them off their pedestal, so to speak. I'm sure anyone who has achieved anything worthwhile in life knows what I'm talking about. These people never say things are "good enough." If there's anything harder in life than achieving your goals, it's keeping what you've achieved. Anybody who watches sports or owns their own business I'm sure already knows this.

Unfortunately, complacency can lead to you losing everything. I think of complacency as spending too much time in your comfort zone, being oblivious to what's going on in the world around you. In life we must always strive to do better. Nowadays they use the phrase "take it to the next level," but I'm sure you all can understand what I'm saying.

On another note, Happy Holidays! Hope to see you all soon. Thanks for reading.
