The quest for safety and security may doom you to a lifetime of mediocrity.
The moment you make safety and security your primary goals in life, you begin to die. To settle for comfortable routine is like doing all of your grocery shopping at a convenience store. You’ll pay an exorbitant price for what you purchase there. The cost is your precious potential.
In our quest for security, too many of us choose to ignore our potential capabilities. It is certainly possible to opt for mediocrity in life and still have all of our basic needs met. We can get food, shelter, and clothing without pushing ourselves very hard; however, we were not created to be average. We were designed to excel and succeed—in our own unique ways.
The path of least resistance often becomes heavily rutted with boredom and dissatisfaction, because the spirit of creativity is built into us. To ignore it in favor of comfortable routine is to squander the greatest of gifts—our human potential.
Mark Twain wrote: “It’s good to take your mind out once in a while and dance on it. Otherwise, it gets all caked up.” That’s a colorful way of saying that we need to push out of habitual routine into new, positive directions. Life offers an abundance of opportunities when we do so.
