Higher Highs, Lower Lows
Higher highs call for lower lows, where average highs create stability; they lack extreme lows while never experiencing intense highs.
An average life is not bad. Average, for some, may be the dream. Average is a point of view. But for the sake of the word’s usage, I am referring to a person’s intentional actions to not pursue their innovative spirit. The sole decision to not push themselves any further than what is “comfortable”. There is nothing wrong with this lifestyle of course. But for all of the minor troubles and failures “average” brings, there are minor highs.
For those who push themselves and travel the distance to experience a plethora of opportunities to fail greatly, they present themselves with the opportunities to experience rich successes. Rich in the sense that the successful times carry a deep sense of passion and satisfaction of oneself.
Failure, in itself, is a periodic situational event that all endure. To experience no failure, is to remain stagnant and never experience development. We as humans need the opportunities to fail, because this is where we grow the most. The question is, how greatly do you wish to push that failure?
To what extent will you go to risk more, only to be rewarded more after capitalizing on opportunity?
Do not let average set in. Push your inner entrepreneurial adventurous side to the forefront of your day, One Day at a Time.
