"A River cuts through rock, not because of its power, but because of its persistence."
A stagnant puddle becomes stagnant because it stops moving. It becomes confined and restricted.
Have you ever come across stagnant water? If not, just do a quick image search for it. Get a good look at the color – probably green or brown, take in the slimy algae, the floating debris, the mosquito’s, and there’s even things in there that can’t be spotted in a picture, or with your eyes –like mosquito larva and diseases.
If you don’t have goals constantly moving you forward, then you will become stagnant. And what happens when you become stagnant? You may feel a lack of purpose or meaning, lack of happiness, lack of confidence, lack of energy, lack of gratitude, lack of enthusiasm about life, and you probably won’t have a good attitude.
Being stagnant is living a life of mediocrity. Never picking up a book. Never working out or attempting to eat better. Becoming resigned. Giving up on your goals or never having goals. However, unlike water, we have the ability to change our circumstances. We have the ability to move ourselves forward.
I encourage you to think about what you want to achieve in the next 30 days. Believe in yourself, take a step forward, and then persist until you reach that goal. It won’t always be easy, but living a stagnant life is not exactly painless (OR fun!)
