Another paradox but this one I am calling a false paradox.
The idea is that you should operate at a place of “enough”, meaning that you have all that you need at your disposal and that you should happy and grateful that you even woke up today.
The paradox is that when you work it out in your brain it seems to go against striving for more or going for goals. Like if you are fine with where you are at, then why make any changes at all.
The reason why it is a false paradox though, or a non argument, is because you didn’t make your best work from a place of thirsty desperation to hit a goal.
You made your best work from a place of creativity and inspiration and you continue to do so. That should be the “enough”. It’s a re-frame. It is also faith that your own creativity and inspiration can influence your circumstances in a positive way.
