People don’t live mediocre, because their true self is mediocre. They act this way, because they abandoned their true self! They adopted the false perception of people around them and started seeing themselves as “not special” and “not smart enough”. And because this is the way they see themselves, this is the way they act!
The headline was just a desperate try to attract your attention! I don’t think you are mediocre! 😉
I often mention, how I wish more people could see the world, the way I see it. If they could look through the surface and beyond the limitations, and see the sparkle of the unlimited. If behind the ugliness, they could see the glazing smile of the beauty. If behind the clumsy, they could see the seed of potential, which is waiting to be “fed”, in order to burst!
In each situation and every time I meet a person, I give my best to never judge others! I give my best to never make conclusions way too fast- about other people’s behavior or words. But I hardly ever succeed to do this, when somebody is belittling the hard work and accomplishments of others. No matter how hard I try, I always get a little irritated when somebody instead of setting the fire, from the sparkle of talent in somebody, gives his best to extinguish it!
They say that truly great leaders, make others feel as if they also can become great. More often than not, I meet people who have achieved great success in their careers, but people who in my opinion lost the path and let progress, turn them into complacent egocentrics. It looks like they are scared for their post in society and they would step on the hand of everybody that is hanging from the cliff, just because they are afraid that he might climb up and move them from the spotlight.
Nowadays there are a bunch of people like this. People who in their desire to be in the center of attention, never encourage others to grow, and they even make the effort to convince them, that they are not worthy enough, that they are not born to succeed or become great. People who try their best to make others feel useless and clumsy. People who try to kill the desire for growth in everybody who dares to wake up the sleeping potential inside his heart!
Thus most people, since an early age start believing in these limitations and in their predestine to be “nobody”.
But I want to tell you that this is not the truth! I want to tell you that everyone of you has the potential to become great! And don’t take greatness for arrogance! To be great means to use the most important gift you were born with- the chance to present your wonderful self to the world around you. The chance to give your best in everything you do. The chance to have faith in yourself and you abilities.
The world swarms with people who are tired of their own life, tired of their own personality and their pitiful existence. They are exhausted, because they are carrying the burden of the limitations, which others set for them! But if they had the conscious to stop for a second and take a deep breath, they would probably have the opportunity to look inside of them and see the sparkle of talent, which is secretly reminding of its existence… deep inside! And that it has been there…waiting all along!
At least for a day see the world, the way I see it. Try to find the opportunity, behind every “no”; the abilities behind every “I can’t”; the path behind every “there is no way”; the hope behind every “you are not worth it”.
Then you will probably find out that the frame, others placed you in, isn’t suitable for your picture- the picture, called life! And then, I hope that you will have the courage to get out of this frame and build your own… a frame, which will be big enough, to hold your true potential! A frame, which won’t set limitations and suppress you, and instead it will be just an ornament, a finishing touch to your wonderful personality!
No matter what you try to achieve today- trust me that you can! Yes, I know that every 9 out of 10 people will tell you that you are not good enough, but why would you believe them? After all a person acts and talks, according to how he sees and evaluates his own self! If they graded themselves with an F, why would you allow them to rate you the same way?
