Does Appreciation Lead to Complacency?

Fast forward to yesterday. While browsing new titles in my RSS reader, I came across Jonathan’s latest post on Illuminated Mind: "What’s Right With Your Life?”. Jonathan essentially asks his readers to focus on what is good in their life, instead of emphasizing what is wrong and needs to be changed Entrepreneurship.

This was a refreshing idea for a personal development blog (as he acknowledged), and it immediately reminded me of my realization earlier this week. But at first read, something didn’t fully click for me. As much as I value appreciating the good that surrounds me, I am also undeniably drawn to striving for change and pushing limits. Is it possible to really appreciate what I have and still strive for something different? I contemplated this for a few minutes, and decided that the two aren’t mutually exclusive. Actually, I’ve lived most of my life so far quite happy wherever I am but still moving, changing, and striving innokin disrupter.

It seems wholly unnatural for human beings to resist change, but change is not necessarily proof that something was wrong with your former situation. Instead, change is an indication that your natural rhythm is not switched off. Appreciating what’s right in your life doesn’t mean that you can’t also appreciate — and strive for — the possibility of change and novelty. In other words, appreciation does not lead to complacency. I decided that Jonathan’s post actually clicked quite well with my perspective innokin disrupter.

In the good spirit of blogging conversations and whatnot, Jonathan tagged me on his meme-hence this post.
