Self-Perception, Mental States and Social Situations.
Ambitious, passionate, motivated states of mind move us along through the hurdles of life. Sometimes we stay idle in life because we are comfortable with the current situation. But what is life without challenges, without change, without successes and failures. We cannot forever be the big fish in the small pond. It will be difficult to be pulled out of the box we sometimes put ourselves in. Sometimes we need to prod, provoked, challenged, and made feel uncomfortable. Without all those things, we would not be willing to strive to better ourselves and broaden our horizons. Sometimes it is okay to be the little fish in the big pond, to be challenged. We must always keep moving forward. We must not think of ourselves as being immune to anything or everything, because we must prepare ourselves for the unexpected. Allow yourself to be vulnerable, so your weakness are revealed, then build and strengthen yourself up and be ready to face the unexpected.
"You might be a big fish, in a little pond, doesn't mean you've won, cause along may come, a bigger one." -Coldplay.
