Bloom Where You Are Planted

You're not in a position for promotion if you're not being the very best you can be in your current situation.

I've been battling with the idea of wanting more - something exciting, something new, something "worthwhile." While we all have the right to pursue our ambitions, packing up your seeds and expecting to plant them on the other side of the green is not always the best option.

To be eligible for growth, you need to first bloom where you are planted. You may not like your current situation, but you have to choose to not live your life miserably, regardless of your circumstances. This applies to every part of our lives: You can't expect to meet Mr. Right when you're treating Mr. Wrong terribly. You can't expect to be manager when you can't even be managed. You can't expect a million dollars when you are poorly budgeting ten thousand. BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED.

This idea isn't to be confused with settling/mediocrity, because one should not be content in mediocre settings. However, you must learn to cherish what you have before you can appreciate what you will gain.

We all deserve more, but a route of success (in any area of your life) is like a line of credit, you have to prove that you're capable with what you have before more resources will be extended to you.

Ok, I'm tired...
