This is the fifth and final Public Service Announcement issued as a warning to be on the alert for these intruders.
Public Service Announcement
This fugitive is a serious threat to your dream. Use every precaution. Complacency should be considered armed and dangerous.
The trouble is that, as modern people, we have too much to live with and too little to live for.” Os Guinness
Complacency is a known risk-avoider. Always takes the path of least resistance. Favorite sayings: “Don’t rock the boat” and “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.”
Places a premium on personal comfort and safety. Threatened by causes that call for personal sacrifice.
Marked by a lack of personal vision and an apathy toward having one.
Cloaks itself as contentment to avoid the demands that personal change may put upon it.
Seeks to replace introspection with entertainment.
Strictly adheres to Newton’s Law: An object at rest, remains at rest.
Aliases: Also goes by: Apathy, Passivity, Satisfaction, Contentment
Precautions: If you know the whereabouts of this Dream Assassin, take the necessary precautions. Complacency is an insidious form of resistance to your dream. It convinces you that your current limitations are insurmountable. That your dream is not worth the risk of making your present situation worse. Complacency, if left unchecked, will keep your boat in port. To ward off complacency, practice a little healthy discontent from time to time.
