What does it mean to compromise? I think of compromising as giving up something I want. It has a negative feeling.
We do it all the time. Maybe with a meal, if I eat the salad I can have the chocolate cake, something like that.
It could be with our effort.
When faced with a difficult task do we compromise down. We take the easy road at times.
I am beginning a new book, “Discover Your True North” by Anne Bruce.
It begins by talking about compromise. It does not have to have a negative connotation.
We have a choice, could we compromise up?
The very first line in the book says “never function below the level of your potential or settle for less when you deserve more.”
It goes on to say every time you function below your potential you compromise the chances of reaching the real you and what you were designed for, and we were all designed for greatness.
So next time you are faced with a compromise, compromise up to get closer to the real, true you.
Thanks and have a wonderful day.
