Motivational Power Quote
Agreeing Is The Path To The Status Quo
"We find comfort among those who
agree with us -
growth among those who don't."
Frank A. Clark, Author, writer
As I see it. . . . . . . .
Agreeing is the path to the status quo
To stretch our self we have to stretch your assumptions, our beliefs and our mind. We have to move ourselves out of our comfort zone and into realm of boundless possibilities.
If the people that we are around us contently agreeing with us, they may be leading us down the wrong path the path way of the status quo. No one who player in the major leagues has ever had a 1000% batting average over their career. And No NFL quarterback has ever completes 100% of their passes in a season.
They may have been excellent at what they do but they are not perfect. So it becomes very unlikely that we are faultless in our thinking and in our actions. There is always room for personal growth and become better at what we do.
It's far better to be surrounded by people who challenge us and are willing to look past the status quo and challenge our assumptions of today and to stretch our thinking to what can be possible.
It's not a question of being perfect in the things we do; it becomes a question of growing and continuous improvement in what we do.
Continually agreeing with us won't make us better it keeps things in the status quo and a no growth zone.
Being surrounded by yes people and people that blindly agree with us will not stretch us or our thinking. We will become stuck in the world of the status quo. Remaining in the status quo won't make us or the people around us better; we remain on the land of self denial.
Evaluate your situation; listen to the comments both pro and con and make a decision on the best way to make progress and to move forward.
Agreeing is the path to the status quo, if you want to breakout of the status quo breakaway from limiting thinking and those around you who are unwilling to challenge you and your thinking.
