Mediocrity is the enemy of life

How often do you hold back so that you don’t ruffle feathers?

Maybe you hold back because you don’t want to be the odd one out?

Or perhaps you withhold what you’re capable of because you don’t want anyone to think that you are arrogant, or full of yourself, or trying to steal the limelight?

When we focus more on what others think of us, than we do on the value of what we want to create, we surrender who we are, for what we think they want us to be.

Mediocrity is celebrated by those who wish to be included.

It is celebrated by those who want to be liked.

Mediocrity is what maintains the status quo, or worse, allows us to slip into becoming irrelevant.

It is the bold and the courageous.

The ones who challenge conventions with purpose.

The ones who don’t settle for what they have the moment they connect with the real life value of what could be better.

They’re the ones that lead without meaning to.

They’re the ones that uplift without expecting something in return.

They’re the ones that create the fascinating experiences that offer a fulfilling life to the ones who celebrate mediocrity.

Mediocrity is the enemy of progress.

Mediocrity is the enemy of growth.

Be careful of taking joy from being celebrated for what you know is not your best effort. Otherwise you may end up holding on to that accolade, from fear of not being able to achieve it if you push yourself beyond it.

Live curiously. Live purposefully. Live loud. Don’t just exist. Live!
