Bye Bye Complacency written by Linda Barbour, Founder of The Flourish Network

Complacency can rob individuals of their destiny. Resting on past accomplishments and having a lack of movement is never a great place to be. Nothing ever evolves from a current state because of a comfort zone. Far too often dreams are never realized because of complacency. Success in anything requires steady movement and consistency. Without those two components, one becomes stagnant. In order to move effectively to the next level, complacency must be dealt with. Change can be overwhelming, but it is required in order to move to the next level. Success requires tenacity, and an unwavering ability to resist moving beyond what makes you uncomfortable. Don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try. Say Bye Bye to Complacency and take bold swift steps towards fulfilling your dreams. You can do anything that you set your mind to. Complacency often comes after someone experiences a measure of success, or sense of accomplishment. If not put in check it can spread quickly and reduce future success significantly for an individual. But! It can be defeated and here are a few tips to assist you in saying Bye Bye to complacency. Acknowledge and Recognize. The saying “the first step in knowing that there is a problem is to acknowledge that it exists” holds true for complacency as well. Believe it or not, it can start with quiet confidence, and slowly become a problem if it goes undetected. Although, having confidence is a positive thing, it can easily to turn into “pride or arrogance” if not kept in check, and this can cause someone to become complacent if there’s no movement or change as it pertains to fluid achievement. What are your habits? Are you grounded in and by gratitude? Have your actions changed from what you did that led to past successes? © Copyright 2018 The Flourish Network & Flourish Networking for Women
