Sometimes in life we feel weak, overwhelmed and out of control of what is happening around—and even more importantly—inside us. There are demands everywhere begging for our attention.
I personally develop the tendency to ignore things in order to keep at least a little control over what is my primary focus. But ignorance is always a poor master.
So I urge you not to give up on your highest expectations! Don’t lower your standards and accept a life that is not truly satisfying you. Don’t accept bad compromises. Don’t accept mediocrity.
