Complacency is one of the biggest threat to success. It is like a plaque which need to be eradicated before it harms you. It makes you always want to stay at the comfort zone and too scared to leverage the potential to the higher level because of having negative thinking on making mistakes, taking risk and facing failures.
Point out one successful person in this world who has reached an outstanding achievement in complacency? Well, you can't find any. Big names such as Sir Richard Branson, The late Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Donald Trumps, Robert Kiyosaki, Jack Ma, Oprah Winfrey, Carlos Slim Helu, Warren Buffet, Akio Morita - Founder of Sony, Jimmy Choo and many more around the globe, have taken off their complacency mind and comfortable seat to face challenges and greater risk for who they are now.
Complacent people love to stay apparently at all the time in complacent atmosphere. They are one of toxic types of people to my opinion. If you are the positive types, you should avoid this group of people because they have 'unhealthy radiation'. It is hard to create progressive steps to success with this 'species' since they will come out with too many negative thoughts, excuses and reasoning not to be apart of greatest challenges. But ironically, they are looking forward to take the compliment and appraisal of any easy success comes crossing their way.
Complacent mind can 'kill' you from becoming creative and innovative. Most of situations, complacent people will only look into 'shortcuts', easiest and fastest way to accomplish something. This kind of mentality will never know how to critically think. Life always starts at the end of your comfort zone. You will never grow and learn anything about the juice of life if you are succumbed to complacency.
Those who create history and unique in their accomplishment never start with complacency. Hardship, challenges and turbulences will develop you to have strong positive character, wiser, hi-resistance, critical mind, persistence, becoming more creative and innovative the way you see things in life.
