“It’s remarkable how much mediocrity we live with, surround ourselves with daily reminders that the average is acceptable. Our world suffers from terminal normality. Take a moment to assess all of the things around you that promote you being “average”. These are the things that keep you powerless to go beyond a “limit” you arbitrarily set for yourself. The first step to mastery is the removal of everything in your environment that represents mediocrity, removing those things that are limiting. One way is to surround yourself with friends who ask more of you than you do. Didn’t some of your best teachers, coaches, parents, etc?”
~ Stewart Emery
List 3 or more things that remind you that you’re average?
If you were to change* these 3 things by only 1-3% what would that get you?
What would you do different?
How would you do it?
When would you do it?
And for how long would you do it?
*By change, I mean do something that stretches you as an individual, do something out of the ordinary.
What 3 or more excuses do you give yourself to keep things “as is”, status quo, or to justify your inactivity.
How are these working out for you?
Do these excuses empower you or keep your world constricted and safe?
What would lead to your expanded growth?
Take a moment to search within for an answer.
Ask yourself … What is my next step?
What can I let go of?
What can I embrace?
When is the best time to do this?
If you decide to change something, are you creating the Best Version of You?
