Where’s your Aimpoint…somewhere in the middle?…why not aim higher?


Who wants to be mediocre?Hmmm...…Really

Do you aim for it?

Is it something you say/do when you first get up in the morning…”Geewizz ‘mediocrity’ looks to be on the agenda today, let’s go get it”

Mediocrity is said to “be the enemy of greatness” yet mediocrity is everywhere we look & is accepted as part of many people’s daily lives.

People in general want to “fit in, be one of the crowd”. It seems a sin to want to stand out, be extraordinary, be conspicuous, be great.

Being ‘one of the crowd’ may have some merit for those who have previously felt isolated, lonely, lack self-esteem….and that’s fair enough. And when you get “re-established”, adjust your aim so that you shoot a little higher.

For the majority  who should know better but seem intent on “just getting through the day”, “making no waves” and all the similar excuses that go with this – your aim is well, short of the mark (classic mediocrity).

Aiming higher gets the senses working overtime, in your favour. It will make you feel alive and when “going for it”, The Universe will conspire to give you every support. If you “don’t have a go” as we say here in Aussieland, you let yourself down. Not everybody will achieve what they aim for however aiming for something greater…..is achievement in itself.

That being said, how do we break free of our mediocrity and aim for something better? – We can start by making conscious choices to do so.

We can choose to think differently and use our imagination to look at our world through a different set of eyes.

Start by asking.…. What can I achieve?

What if I said “Yes I can” not “No I can’t”?

Imagination opens up a lot of “what if’s” and ‘What could be’s”. Don’t just accept ‘what is’…consider ‘what if’…and open up fresh possibilities.

Use your imagination to create a better life for yourself. Open up the possibilities, release the average, introduce the greatness in your life and very importantly…follow thru on your new imagined Life and believe that you CAN do itlet go of the mediocrity, it’s not your friend.

Be good to yourselves

  2. Stepping out of their comfort zone is scary for most people. Who wants to upset the cart after all? But then, nothing attempted nothing gained. Great message here, David! :-) And I love your signature line “Be good to yourselves”. Have a great week ahead!

  3. “Mediocrity is said to ‘be the enemy of greatness’ yet mediocrity is everywhere we look & is accepted as part of many people’s daily lives.” Amen to that David! I am with you 100%! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi David,

    Love this line as well – “Mediocrity is said to “be the enemy of greatness” yet mediocrity is everywhere we look & is accepted as part of many people’s daily lives.” It is too easy to sit back and take the easy route. Thanks for sharing a great reminder.

  7. Hi David,

    I really liked this post. One point I really appreciated what how you said that ‘fitting in with the rest’ is ok in certain circumstances, such as when a person is coming from a position from very low self esteem. However, as you quite rightly said, once this has been achieved, one should look to go beyond and really explore the infinite potential, which exists in all of us.

  8. Great post David….I start with what’s the best possible version of myself and what are the values of that person, then its about being first, doing second and having third. I know I ‘m absoultely unlimited and love what I do. You too, sound like you’re living with purpose a great start in moving away from fear and limitations and struggle.

  9. David – I love your statement that mediocrity is the enemy of greatness….I live in the possibilities – so no following the crowd here – more like RADICAL….

    In living life to the fullest,
    Nancy
