I have heard people talk about the state of being stagnant, and I always wonder where they got that. Let’s be frank, what will happen if this our planet earth should stop rotating for a week? I don’t want to have to experience that. There is no such thing as being stagnant! You’re either progressing or sinking into retrogression. Life goes on, everything around you does too. So the more you stand at a point, the deeper you sink.
Think about it, take formal education for instance: if you choose not to get past a high school qualification even if you were the brightest kid in your school. You will, at some point, have a number of people looking up to you. But give yourself another five years, you will find that the folks who used to see you as some sort of messiah have gone far ahead of you. You will have folks wonder what had happened to you. That’s when you will realize that you didn’t stand at a point. You have been relegated to the background because everything around has moved on while you stayed behind. You will realize that you’re not worth as much as you did five years ago, and you most likely don’t earn as much too.
There is always a shift in the atmosphere per time. You’ve got to recognize it and press into it. You must first understand that you have to shift the atmosphere in your mind before you can shift the one around you. Make the most out of life right here, where you are. You are well on your way to mastering the secret when you stop waiting for ideal surroundings; stop waiting until next year, next decade, until you get rich, until you can travel abroad…paradise is here or nowhere. Extract happiness, not from ideal conditions, but from the actual ones about you.
Wherever you go, you must take your joy with you or you will never find it. And always remember, a million things can bring you down. You just have to one reason to keep you up and running.
