Are you working for good, or to avoid bad?
Do you put more energy into trying to please your bride, or in trying to keep her from being upset? Do you work for more, or do you work to try and avoid losing what you have? Are you working for better, or to avoid worse?
I have seen a lot of men who seem to have decided they can’t risk what they have, even if what they have is far from what they want. They would like more, or better, but in their mind the only way to have a chance for those things is to gamble what they already have. But in my experience, when you are all about avoiding loss at any cost, you will inevitably suffer loss. If you are not growing, you are shrinking, if you are not living you are dying. If it’s not getting better, it’s getting worse. It can’t get better if you are putting most of your time and energy into avoiding loss; you can’t be making gains when you are just hanging on.
My point is that focusing on keeping what you have is a sure way to lose what you have – so why not focusing on having better? Focusing on better may still risk loss, but it’s not a sure thing, and you might actually get something better!
And yes, this is, another Seth inspired tip.
