When things go considerably well for a long period of time, we either get cocky/comfortable or assume that what we’re doing is working. That’s just human nature. We suck at measuring what matters, especially things that are currently happening because it’s hard not to get caught up in the moment. So, what ends up happening is we forget why we started, or think we’ve reached our destination.
Setbacks are what allow us to adjust in the right direction. Because of our limitations we are able to relate to people. It is because of our faulty upbringing we want better for our kids.
If everybody believed that they were “enough”, wouldn’t we just stay there until it’s too late? If you were up in the clouds since the beginning, wouldn’t you have way too many blind spots? All the innovations, inventions and breakthroughs happened because somebody was not happy with the way things were done or not satisfied with the answers.
