Great Life vs Good Life
I came across an interesting question, "What is the biggest enemy of great life?"
The answer was unexpected: it's good life.
People may have misfortune, failure or faulty, but all of them will not stand firmly between them and great life. Why? Because the feeling of misfortune and failing will create dissatisfaction and discontent which will push them ahead.
On the other hand, good life is a silent enemy. Good life is so sedating that people are buoyed with satisfaction. It makes people forget about the great life they could potentially have. Good life is a silent killer to fighting spirit and the willingness to move forward. Simply because people become too afraid to risk what they already have on hand.
I'm not saying that having a good life is bad. It's a choice. Of course, good life is easier to achieve and will not involve higher risk. But good can never be great. And to be great, you need to work harder.
It's your choice now, do you want a good life or a great life?
