Danger of being Complaisant

being complaisant has been one of the most common attitudes that people always had. by definition, this word is defined as "pleased, esp. with oneself or one's merits, advantages, situation, etc., often without awareness of some potential danger or defect". but what are the possible reasons why people are being complacent, probably because they are good enough, or consistent on the other hand. which also relates with the story about the Rabbit and the Turtle who had a race but because of the attitude of the Bunny of being complacent, the Turtle managed to win the race.

This lesson i learned in a hard way. I always managed to be on the top, even boasting of it sometimes. Till the days of the last week has come, it shocked me right upfront making me feel terrible and panicking at the same time. I could think of a lot of things like, i should have done this or that but its too late. Now i can think of a lot of consequences that come's next after this failure that i have. now i know what to do the second time around, not falling to this trap again.
