There are times I think about quitting, giving up, and settling.

Settling is the path of least resistance.

Settling is surrendering. Settling is acknowledging defeat. Settling is raising the white flag on our dreams. Settling is saying I’m not good enough to win.

Settling is easy and quick.

I know settling won’t make me happy.

Settling will raise questions and lead to regret.

Don’t take the easy way out. Do the hard thing. Take the road less traveled.

Think long-term. Make sacrifices. Delay gratification. Make progress. We will be rewarded with a life full of fulfillment and happiness.
