Hard to believe but there are some people out there in the world who feel they’re average. Also there are those moments when you feel average maybe due to recent occurrences, failures or limited recognition.
Truth is there is never really average, it is you who decides whether you are average or not. The scale for who is average or who is not is truly relative.
The first step to getting out of this pickle is to believe you are not a mediocre, the tongue and mind are a powerful thing so positivity is key.
Take some time off and decide what you want to be or where you picture yourself in the next few months. This helps direct your efforts similar to aiming and shooting at a target in front of you rather than shooting at an entire field.
Stop being average and climb up that ladder
Get out of your comfort zone and start moving! Don’t spend too much time thinking about opportunities coming your way; just act after all there’s little to lose.
Attend those parties you’re invited to, hang out at the bar with friends, accept that request to dance, go bungee jumping, take online lessons on YouTube, etc. This may look like a total waste of time but it is going to help you meet amazing friends, influential people, it will teach you to become a go getter, to dare to risk and to become creative.
The first times you may not reach where you want to be, but in the end the path will soar you from average to awesome. In the midst of all the adrenaline rush and doing knew things, in the moment, you will realize that you don’t need some one to tell you that you’re great and can make it but that You’re you!!
The moment you realize this, you cease to be average. You start to work towards what makes you happy and develops you.
Don’t be mean; Believe in yourself, Be You! The world is there; it’s your playground so make great use of it before you’re too old to play.
So tell me, do you still think you are average?
