After the holidays, it really does feel great to get back to some sort of “normalcy”. I use this “word” carefully though because Normality (or Normalcy) is the condition of being normal; the state of being usual, typical or expected.
This is some thin ice to walk on. If your normal, everyday routine doesn’t have you pushing for new levels… well then there could be a problem. The point is complacency kills us. How so?
Well complacency is a feeling of satisfaction with one’s achievements. It is making your way to a goal or accomplishment and just sitting back coasting after wards. This doesn’t make you any better. In fact, the more time between when you attain a goal and when you start working towards a new one can really destroy your momentum.
So what are we looking for then? I am looking to be content, not complacent. Contentment is a state of happiness and satisfaction. I want to be happy. Do you? Your answer should be “YES!!!” of course.
So how do we progress and also be happy?
Your new goal is to find a way to make forward advancement your point of contention. This will not happen over night. There are going to be days you don’t want to do it; but… you MUST!
So find a way to get uncomfortable. Find a way to challenge yourself. Embrace the grind and get busy pushing yourself to be stronger, faster, smarter and healthier.
