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

Who wants to be mediocre?…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

Living Life Today – When you must draw a Line in the Sand

I’ll come clean…this post is partly a “redo”. I originally posted “Drawing a Line in the Sand” early last year in my embryonic blogging days. I feel very strongly about this topic so I couldn’t resist re posting, this time under the Living Life Today series banner. I have made a few tweeks. Hope you enjoy.
The Living Life Today series provides a platform to think about your Life as it is Now, enjoy what you have, review and create an even better future for tomorrow”….. Short, sharp & easily digestible.
 

  • How much do you put up with?
  • How many Excuses do you give yourself?
  • Why is “Procrastination” your middle name?

There comes a point in one’s Life when enough is enough. This can relate to what you do……. and what others do to you.

  • Do you want to keep playing ‘the victim’?
  • Are you happy to be mediocre rather than great?
  • Do you put up with unnecessary crap?… or any crap for that matter.
  • Do you lack the freedom to express yourself OR the will to do so?
  • Are you choice poor? Or choice avoidant?
  • Are you stuck in a rut?

Could it be time to draw a line in the sand?…… No more crap, no more mediocrity, no more lack of or avoidance of choice, no more excuses, no more playing the ‘victim’

Stand up, be counted, stretch yourself, shine & do your very best!

Now, is it time for you to draw a line in the sand?…..

Be good to yourselves

Let go of your Mediocrity

Who wants to be mediocre?

Mediocrity is the enemy of greatness yet mediocrity abounds in our daily lives.

People want to “fit in, be one of the crowd”, people in general do not 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. However this is no excuse for the vast majority of us 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 – classic mediocrity.

That being said, how do we break free of our mediocrity? – 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. Ask yourself, 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” , ‘What could be’s”.

Einstein said ”Imagination is greater than knowledge”. Use your imagination to create a better life for yourself. Open up the possibilities, release the average and introduce the greatness in your life – let go of the mediocrity.

Be good to yourselves
