Doing Good Goes Beyond Status Quo
Today I enjoyed participating in a 10k race. It was hosted by EWeb to raise funds for people in Eugene who need help with their utility bills.
What a great way to enjoy my Sunday… doing something good for my mind, body and soul while also doing something good for others.
The only thing I don’t like about Sunday races is I usually to miss Sunday service at the Center for Spiritual Living. And yet, a great run is very spiritual to me. I’m in a total space of gratitude that my legs, arms, ears, heart, eyes and all other essentials are functioning at top level.
It was pouring down rain when I got to the starting area. (the image above was taken from inside my car while waiting for the race to start)
Fortunately, the rain let up a bit when over 1,000 people started. It was an on again, off again rainy day.
While waiting for the race to begin, I chatted it up with a couple of women who are about my age. One is getting ready to retire and the other will retire in about a year.
We were like giddy teenage girls talking about how thrilled we are, at our age, to be running in a race. Which led to the topic of settling for the status quo.
Are You Settling?
Many people do settle. They buy into the belief that as they get older, they have to slow down, act their age (whatever the heck that means) and settle for.
The fact is, you DON’T have to settle for the status quo. Life can get pretty darned exciting after you turn 50. And watch out when you hit 60. (I’ll be turning 63 in a few months).
Truth be told, how you age is 90% based on your mindset. With the right mindset you are willing to do things you otherwise wouldn’t do…. like run a 10k race in the pouring rain… just because. (Not that you need to run a 10k… it could be something completely different, but still signifies pushing limits).
With the wrong mindset, you settle for a life of mediocrity. Chances are, that’s NOT what you want.
I know I sure don’t.
How Do You Know If You’re Settling?
There are some tell-tell signs you might be settling for less than you deserve in life. One sign is that you’re often tired… for no apparent reason. If you’re tired much of the time, you are likely in a job, career, relationship or living arrangement you’re not happy with.
Another sign you’re settling for is when you constantly give up your power of decision making to others. And then you blame them for things being the way they are.
Yet another sign is you constantly say, “When I have X I will be happy.”
There are plenty more signs, but these are three very obvious ones.
Are You Ready to Play Full Out
A proven way to let go of settling for the status quo is to push your own limits. You have to give yourself permission to go beyond where you’re currently at in life. Only you can make change happen from the inside out.
Another way is to surround yourself others who are done playing small.
