Each of us is born to succeed. Unfortunately, many of us die amid mediocrity. When we think about doing something, we do it when it’s convenient. But when we are decisive about something, we accept no excuses, only results. Living a mediocre life is tantamount to living in an excuse. The good news is that I’m here to offer you everything that I have discovered as I journey through life.

The biggest struggle we face in life is finding our way back when we get lost. It’s extremely difficult to be oneself today. Many around the world are facing the dilemma of identity. Many are struggling to discover who they are and where they stand in the family, the community, and the world.

Our personal expectations and roles are changing. And no matter how hard we try to deny it, people still have their opinion about us whether we fail or succeed. Because of this shift in position and roles, many are finding themselves in an uneasy, uncomfortable conflict with themselves.

The pace of such a life in conflict with himself is leaving them exhausted and disillusioned. On a personal level, confusion over what role and expectations one ought to perform has left many living in mediocrity. Men and women today are struggling with the delicate balance of attending to the needs of both their families and their careers.

Many are struggling with job competition, emotional turmoil, and lost income due to divorce. Many are unsure of what they are responsible for.
What is compounding this issue? Conflicts stemming from cultural changes in the way people view success. In many countries, the cultural view of how to be successful in continuing to devalue people’s worth and dignity.

Get a clear understanding of what it means to be successful and avoid living in mediocre.

Anyone living under such a view is extremely vulnerable to becoming mediocre. Merely insisting that people should value their efforts will not change the false view they have of themselves. We need to lay new groundwork for understanding what it means to succeed and avoid living in mediocre.

We must look beyond the cultures of the world and rediscover intrinsic truths about how to live a purposeful life. Never be scared to give your best to your what your hand finds to do. Your progress, no matter how slow or small, matters. It’s okay to win small now. Sometimes in life, we are given a little, to see what we will do with a lot.

Don’t go to work with the mindset that when you get a big title, be granted more responsibility, before you perform at mastery. You have to pay the price of success before you can get all the rewards you deserve. And by the way just because you didn’t get the reward you deserved isn’t enough reason to live the rest of your life in mediocrity.

“The chicken will always come home to roost.”

You’ll get what you deserve. Be intentional. Even the smallest good act has good significance. Be an original. You are born to succeed. There will never be an exact copy of you anywhere else. And no one else can be as good you as you. Don’t live the rest of your life as a mediocre.

Until I come your way again, be intentional, and live a purposeful life. Quit the mediocrity you’re involved in and start experiencing amazing things.
