Are You Settling for Less?
When you have to work yourself into a state of excitement rather than naturally experiencing joy and passion you are probably settling.
When you bargain with yourself about what you can do without rather than feeling gratitude for what you already have, you are probably settling.
When your focus is on the time and energy you have invested in an endeavour rather than the love, joy and gratification you have gained, you are probably settling.
When you are making excuses about why you should stay put rather than going for what you truly want, you are probably settling.
When you spend more time complaining about what you have than appreciating it, you are definitely settling.

The great Norwegian playwright, Henrik Ibsen, wrote, “One of these days, the younger generation will come knocking at my door. The future is knocking at our door right now. Make no mistake, the next generation will ask us one of two questions. Either they will ask: ‘What were you thinking; why didn’t you act?’ Or they will ask instead: ‘How did you find the moral courage to rise and successfully resolve a crisis that so many said was impossible to solve?’”
