Motivational Power Quote
"I don't think that once you get to one level,
you can relax.
You've got to keep pushing."
Larry Bird, NBA Hall Of Fame
As I see it. . . . . . . .
When we reach a plateau on our success journey we may want to enjoy the glow of the success. But if we become complacence we may never move beyond the current level of our success and we will never realize our full potential.
Success is a series of stepping stone with each one moving us a little closer to achieving our goals and taking us the next level of success.
Look at each stepping stone as a step forward and we may find ourselves wanting to take a moment to catch our breath and relax. But the stepping stones are not the finial destination they are mealy the stepping stone to the next level.
If you find yourself becoming a little weary and start to think about using the stepping stone as your landing pad, you will derail your success journey. When your weary that becomes a time that you going have to push yourself hard to get up and get off the stepping stone and step forward on to the next stepping stone.
Success and achievement takes time and focused effort. Keep pushing yourself to reach a little higher and a little furthered and as you stretch yourself you will find that your goals become a little closer.
