Say NO to toxic waste
Greatness is not about having all the answers but more so about having questions and not being afraid to look for answers. If you think you are perfect just the way you are or that you don’t need to change, “others” do, you will create stagnation in your life.
1-stagnation - a state of inactivity
2-stagnation - inactivity of liquids; being stagnant; standing still; without current or circulation
And we all know that stagnant water can be a major environmental hazard. It’s toxic, unsafe. Do NOT let your life become toxic.
Actions we may be performing daily, even unconsciously, most likely seem ideal to us. Then someone comes along doing it better and more efficiently. We have the choice to turn our heads and say “My way is still better because of this and that and this” OR we could say “What he/she is doing works much better, how can I learn to do it better”. Yes there may be a battle with your ego but your ego doesn’t keep you warm at night. I have seen time and time again people refusing to grow, becoming “stagnant” and most of the time their way to handle growth is by keeping others around them from growing, even having them regress. This way they keep being the big dog. But they will never know greatness. Greatness is being your best and helping others around you being their best. This way everyone keep each other growing and alive. There is no life in stagnation.
Today, let someone challenge you and learn from it.
