Mediocre Me – Leading in a More Excellent Way

See on Scoop.itProject SPECKLED TROUT

”     Have you abandoned taking tangible steps in the direction of your dreams? Have you settled for leading a life far smaller and narrower than you’re capable of living? If you answered no and are currently doing something to stretch your abilities and explore the full extent of your capabilities, congratulations–you are in a small, select group of people who choose to lead their lives in a more excellent way.

     What specifically do I mean by leading your life in a more excellent way?  It’s simple. I’m saying you recognize the quality of your life is determined largely by the quality of your thoughts. Think small, live small. Choose to be average and the one thing that’s virtually guaranteed is that you will achieve your goal every time.

     However, if you chose to expand your view of the potential role you can play in the world, everything changes. Instead of being content taking the path of least resistance and accepting mediocrity as the norm, you are intent to become the best version of yourself possible by leading your life characterized by such terms as relevant, significant, and dare I say, excellent.”
