Complacency is an architect of your fall, if it is an attitude.
Being complacent is to be “self satisfied or self content”.This could be an attitude and a state of being.
Complacency has bigger implications, when it becomes only an attitude. Because it could be a comfort, leased out from the future.In the modern world with vast possibilities to be constantly in an “amusement track” with ipads,ipods,face book,twitter, YouTube and many more, young people could build an attitude of complacency, that is dangerous to their progress.The world has changed from a limited possibility of entertaining people to one that enlarges itself, day by day.
Many people, especially young people, enjoy to prefer a pleasure instead of a duty or commitment to obligations. When the exams come near, the student postpone learning till a last dates, wasting the precious time for pleasure. It is not complacency . It is procrastination. They opt the pleasure and amusement instead of a high-priority duty.People opt lower priority tasks or doing something from which one derives pleasure, putting off an important job to a later time is called procrastination.
People do not prefer negative emotions and taking up a stressful task until a deadline occurs.This concept creates a situation that, they have to work under pressure later. Mostly people find an additional enjoyment and motivation to postpone the hard tasks or not take the responsibility in time and as the context demands it.
Anxiety and fear of failure
The human ego is basically a paranoid.With an ever amusing behavior,people find a mechanism to compensate their anxiety,mistrust and confusion. There is a consistent fear in them, associated with starting and completing a task . People will get attuned to “ a need-to-have” to a ” good-to-have ” mood from which they enjoy a delay or postponement. Thereby they assume that they could manage it through somebody or simply an an excuse. Slowly this practice become a habit and such people could become counterproductive or useless to the society when they cannot manage themselves even the delayed timeline.Because time does not wait for anybody.Then why do people voluntarily delay an obligation or duty , despite knowing it to be a wrong step.
Pleasure is a psychosomatic need for lack of contentment.
Procrastination starts as a pleasure and becomes a human deficit that may result in stress, a sense of guilt and crisis of self pity, The severe loss of personal credibility , as well as social disapproval for not meeting responsibilities or commitments may cause an inferiority in public appearances. Such feelings combined may promote further hesitation for duties.
While it is regarded as normal for people to be complacent and procrastinate to some degree, it becomes a problem and habit, when it impedes the normal functioning of day today liabilities. Chronic procrastination may be a sign of an underlying personal disorder. Such people may have difficulty seeking support from society due to the stigma and belief that job-aversion is caused by laziness, low willpower or lack of motivation.
The presence of an inner being will correct the paranoia with in the human ego
Self awareness in people put an “inner being” that help to be complacent with never ending growth potential.With an inner growth, Complacency become the status of a person from an attitude. Then people get far more evolved and enlightened towards one`s duties and responsibilities. Enlightened people could engage themselves better doing service to their families, their future and their country, at every point of time in their lives.They never step into comfort zones when there is any issue that confront them.Because they are always in awareness of the environment.
