Most people are average, or close to average. By definition this is true. If we are grading on an A – F scale, most people are between a D+ to a B-. There is no grading on a curve here, most people are close to average.
Are you tired of being average? Are you willing to do what it takes to be great?
If you are content at being average it’s pretty easy to stay that way. There is very little risk of becoming an outright failure.
If you are tired of being average and ready to be great, you have to realize that you are taking a risk and failure is a possibility.
For me, it’s not about being great, it’s about striving to be great.
The great thing is it’s almost always a conscious decision. You can choose to be average or you can choose to be great.
The thing to remember is you can’t always choose what you will be great in. There are some things I will never be good at, and that is ok, but I can choose to be great at SOMETHING.
There is nothing wrong with choosing to be average but too often people accept being average because they aren’t willing to make the commitment needed to excel. Even worse, they think they can’t be special because of outside forces (better known as excuses).
I don’t know if I’ll ever be great but I do know I will continue to keep striving.
Have a great day!
