"The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little." — Thomas Merton

Reflection 🤔

When you settle for less than what you should, it's usually because you lack belief in yourself to get where you want to go.

It's tempting to take your foot off the gas when growth requires more of you. To believe you can't go any further.

Most of time, you haven't even touched your true potential yet.

Action ✅
