“By definition, it is not possible to everyone to be above the average.” – Jim Collins
Being seen as average is often looked at as bad, but it doesn’t have to be that way. I’m not saying be lazy, but you don’t have to pressure yourself to be the MVP. It’s so important to be content with yourself and where you’re at. I’m not saying to stop trying, I’m saying let go of the phantom version of yourself that is some other worldly being. Allow yourself to be content and average.
Ambition is good and so is exceptionalism but it isn’t everything.
Recognize where it’s okay to be ordinary in your life.
Stop obsessing over exceptionalism in every single area of your life.
Average is okay. So don’t beat yourself up for it.
