Abandoned Success

Daily Draw: Chinese Tarot ~ 8 of Cups

I had an instructor once tell me that fear of success is what keeps most people from succeeding beyond their wildest dreams. I'm thinking that's probably the truth. Success = Change and most folks hate change because it is the unknown and their safe zone is where they want to be.

I'm reminded by this card how much I admire individuals who meet and exceed their goals, overcoming the odds, bouncing back for more, never saying never. Congratulations for walking away from the table of mediocrity.

"There is always a heavy demand for fresh mediocrity. In every generation the least cultivated taste has the largest appetite." ~ Paul Gauguin 1848-1903
