Commit to Moving Forward: Tip Tuesday

You got big dreams. You want fame. Well, fame costs, and right here is where you start paying – in sweat.

Lydia Grant (played by Debbie Allen) in ‘Fame’ (affiliate link).

You may not want fame, but whatever it is you do want will take commitment. If it’s worth having it won’t happen overnight. You’ll need to work for it. It will take time, perseverance, and change. To get through the long period of time when nothing seems to be happening or circumstances are blocking your opportunity, you need commitment. You need to look at where you want to be and keep that as your focus. It’s easy to slide into what’s comfortable. Comfortable keeps you from feeling pain, but it also numbs you to possible pleasure. Comfortable will keep you from experiencing the kind of life you were meant for.

On Being Comfortable

Most people will tell you that it’s okay to feel comfortable with where you. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying what you have and what you have achieved. And if you’re happy with it, few will fault you with your stagnation. A majority of people want to be comfortable; they don’t need, or even dream, of reaching for their full potential. But resting on your laurels will keep you from a far more fulfilling life and way of being. Even if you are satisfied with your life, you can still move forward in your development.

Keep Moving Forward

No matter where you are with life, you can keep moving forward. All it takes is commitment to improving yourself. You don’t have to change your job or your family, but you may have to change what you’re doing in your free time. Change is hard. It takes courage to change and to create a new way of life for you to feel even more fulfilled. Commit to your next creative project, bring it to fruition, and keep moving forward.
