Some people seek things.
Adventure. Opportunity. More.
This leads them down amazing paths and dangerous ones. To highs and lows.
Seekers demand answers. They expect happiness. They want bigger and better.
Usually, they get it.
It may take a while, but those who consistently seek tend to find what they look for.
But it’s rarely enough. Because seeking is addictive.
Seekers fall in love with the hunt and lose sight of the prize.
The urge to seek that propelled them forward ultimately prevents them from enjoying it once they get there.
They see no finish line – only new things to pursue, new twists to take, and new challenges to overcome.
Other people seek nothing.
They accept their fate. They accept their role. They settle.
They don’t see what’s possible – only what’s impossible.
They’d rather be safe so they wait. Sit. Let things pass them by.
They see others get what they want and question why it wasn’t them. They are rarely happy.
But they are often content.
They appreciate things. They don’t long. Don’t feel pressure.
They neither wallow in the past nor dream about the future.
They don’t wonder. They don’t worry.
They are OK.
We all need to be both Seekers and Accepters at different times in our lives.
The challenge is figuring out when to be which.
That’s no easy task. But the better you get at it, the better your life will be.
