Good ≠ Good

1496573_300Finish this sentence:
“In life, you get what you_______________.”

What was your answer?

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night when the room is just a little too cold.  This sometimes happens to me. It’s not freezing but it’s certainly not comfortable. You consider getting up to fetch another blanket but you don’t quite want to leave the bed either. And so you stay there for a while, debating whether to get out of bed and get the second blanket or just hope you’ll be able to fall back asleep.

One of the most de-motivating places to be in health, career, a relationship or even life is ‘good enough.’
Good is not good. Good will sabotage your great. Good enough will always rob us of what’s possible. Most of the time, good tricks us into putting up with a lot of things we don’t actually want at all.

Often we’re not satisfied with our health or the way we look but not enough to start eating better and exercise every day.
We don’t like our career yet we put up with it and do little to make a change, sometimes for years. Maybe we’re in a relationship and though it’s not ideal, when contrasted to a fear of loneliness, we accept the good with the bad even.

An important part of getting to where you want to be is to get clear and decide you don’t want to be where you are right now.  You get what you put up with. In life, you get what you accept.

So accept nothing less than what you really want and what you really deserve.
