Something funny I noticed— all of my friends with good jobs and good salaries in life are quite complacent in their lives. Very happy and comfortable, pleased with where they are, no qualms, no gripes.
But the problem — this breeds complacency (pleased with one’s standing and where one is).
So then it seems that the life goal is this: When you’ve succeeded and reached in certain level of success, hate complacency. Always strive for more. This can be striving for more in your photography, to hate complacency in your artistic and creative endeavors.
