If you’re still doing in 5 years the job you’re doing now is that a win or a fail?
There is a fine line between contentment and complacency.
When you are CONTENT you have peace without regard for circumstances. With contentment, you maintain hope things will constantly be getting better and your ambition remains a strong motivation for your own improvement.
When you are COMPLACENT you have reached a point of “content to a fault”. You have lost all ambition for better, you have given up hope, you have relegated yourself and your posterity to the lot in life you are experiencing right now.
The answer is a VISION. You need a vision of yourself in the future which demands that you grow and improve to be worthy of your own future. You need a vision which so emotionally compels you that you would face down lions to reach the goals along the way.
Develop a vision for your life which will motivate you beyond the mundane and STOP SETTLING!
Complacent is “content to a fault” - look it up.
