Have you ever held on to an old pair of worn out sneakers for too long? How about an old pair of jeans? What about a boyfriend or girlfriend? I know I have. And I’m thinking that you have too! Why do we do this? The answer is because we feel comfortable and secure with what we know.

We tell ourselves that we wouldn’t dare let go of any of these items of comfort and security mentioned above. Sadly, these items of security are really not items of security at all, but rather items of familiarity. Hmm… We will not give them up; even if we have been tipped off by a pleasant downwind scent of greener pastures just on the other side of the opposing fence.

All of these false securities that we hold onto so dearly in life are just that… false… So why do we hold on to them so tightly? Well, quite frankly, it’s because of our own insecurities… We all have these insecurities that keep us all deathly afraid of sailing our ship out of our own self-imposed harbor. Thus, we never get to live our lives to our fullest potential… This is sad, wouldn’t you agree? We should do something about this, right? But, what should we do?

A little bit at a time… Improve just a little bit every single day, and we’ll eventually be able to create our own luck, or our own sense of security in ourselves. By improving a little bit every single day we’ll find ourselves eventually mastering our specialty. And once we’ve mastered a particular subject then other subjects will be easier to master. We’ll find ourselves in demand, and even getting paid for what we know!  Now we’re starting to talk real security!
