On our latest segment of LET IT BE KNOWN LIVE RADIO, we placed emphasis on being consistently motivated in meeting your own expectations and not settling for what is thrown at you. Many people settle and accept mediocrity plainly out of fear and a false sense of security that has caused them to discount any alternative and notion of transition. People approach relationships, jobs and marriages full of expectations but over time forget what they were in it for—leading to complacency. They kill off all of their personal expectations by choosing to have them dwarfed by those they are surrounded by who will accelerate that mediocrity. Mediocrity depletes a lot of potential, dreams and aspirations. There are many of us that are unhappy with our present conditions but choose to accept them instead of challenge them. If you surround yourself with the right people, the right things will happen. Get those in your life that will stimulate and inspire you which will ignite that inner-fire in you. All of the things you don’t like you will then find the means to correct them.
