I often hear people say stuffs like – “I’m not brilliant and I’m not dull” OR “I’m not tall and I’m not short” OR “I’m not dark and I’m not light” OR “I’m not good looking and I’m not ugly” OR “I’m not hardworking and I’m not lazy” OR “I’m not fat and I’m not slim” OR this – “I’m not rich and I’m not poor”. A very direct way of preaching average yet kind of annoying to me. I used to say to people – “I’m not brilliant and I’m not dull”. And I used to fancy this viral comment – “You tried”. Have someone ever bathe you with such comment after finishing a task? When it comes to me, countless people have. I heard the “You tried” comment so much that it started getting painful. I was sick and tired of it. Like it or not , anything average is not fulfilling. Now,if you ask me how I’m doing academically, I would say to you – “Not so good (Bad)”. I’m I being pessimistic? Not at all. I’m just hitting myself with the fact. If I tell people I’m Fair (average)” academically, I just killed the hunger to yearn for more – The zeal to move beyond the average stigma. Countless times , in fact , most times , my score has been average in the classroom but it actually made me feel better than the one who flunked. No wonder schools are doing nothing but building or creating average to the society every year.
It’s better you take a stand if you want growth in your life. Nature has a stand – It’s either light or darkness. You want more examples? I’ll give you. In context of nature , there’s only wet or dry. Domestic or wild animals (There’s no normal). White or black . Heaven and earth. Good or bad. You remember this one ? Paradise and Hell. Knock the average thing off. A guy pissed me off the other day when he made remarks about his girlfriend – “I like her and I dislike her”.
To me, that was zero commitment. He’s a swift lier. You can’t do both. Choose one. The average concept is killing our potential. So you understand me clearly , how would you feel if someone told you – “You are not alive and you’re not dead”. To me, that’s a curse. It’s just like someone in comma. How about you start praying to be in comma if you love average that much? Take A Stand. Stop psyching yourself up unnecessarily. You want to feel truly inspired or motivated? Just sit yourself down and tell yourself the truth. The next thing I would tell you to do is take ACTION! Solve your deficiency – Nobody will. For example – If I feel (Tell myself the truth ) that I’m bad at mathematics instead of lying to myself that I’m average, my next step would be tied to making sure that I’m good at it, if possible great! Believe me, it is actually possible. It won’t be easy, but, its possible , right? If you’re not good at something, say it as it is , don’t pretend or lie to yourself.
My kid brother is great at making rap music , I’m great at writing or creating thought provoking contents – Great deal , right? I don’t need to start preaching to others that I’m an average pig at rap music. What do I need to do? I need to proclaim one thing – I’m a great writer and speaker! If you have doubts in regards to my abilities or strengths, there are only two things involved ;
- Hire me as a writer or speaker and see for yourself.
- Shut up!
Maybe in schools average is tolerated , I really need to tell you this, in the real world you’re as good as dead if you dare embrace the concept of average. You can’t be good at everything, so admit that you’re not good at everything. Stop cooking up the average infection. You can’t be both. You can only be one. For emphasis sake – You can’t be a human being and a monkey at the same time, choose one – I know what I’ll chose. I’d rather proclaim I’m poor at something (which definitely would open helping hands for me ) than proclaim I’m average. Average sucks and it’s filled with nothing but ego. Let me tell you a few things about me so you understand this concept clearly – I’m a short guy, a great writer/speaker, and hey , I’m handsome! Sounds like I’m bragging? Well it’s definitely better than claiming to be average! Take a stand……
