There is a story from the book of Luke 19 in the Bible about Zacchaeus a wealthy albeit dishonest businessman. He was a financial shark and chief tax collector. Extremely successful by most accounts. However, he believed he was in a slump. Not financially but internally. He was continually successful but not liked by others. He was not satisfied with the status quo any longer and was on a mission to change his situation. He had heard about an influential leader who could inspire others to do more than anyone thought possible and wanted to see this leader for himself. One day he risked his reputation and life by literally climbing up a tree to see this much talked about leader named Jesus. This became a defining moment for Zaccheaeus and changed the course of his future. The point is – If you want to be what you’ve always been, keep doing what you’ve always done. If you want to change who you are or your circumstances, change what you do. In other words, sometimes to change the fruit, you have to go out on a limb.
Sometimes the enemy of great is settling for good enough.
We settle because we feel under appreciated or burned out, perhaps we tried and failed, or simply became weary of trying. All of us at times can get stuck in a rut of complacency and before we realize it, we are afraid to go out on a limb or aren’t willing to put in the effort to climb the tree.
