“But why diminish your soul being run-of-the-mill at something? Mediocrity: now there is ugliness for you. Mediocrity’s a hairball coughed up on the Persian carpet of Creation.”

Tom Robbins, Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas

Average is the devil. By definition not everyone can be above average. Some of you reading this right now are average. Average is a choice. Your actions, habits, rituals, and thoughts dictate this fact. We are not able to pick the perfect parents genetically. We are able to choose the proper thoughts and actions to become the best versions of ourselves.

Choose to be great. You may suck right now. It’s ok! What’s not ok is relinquishing yourself to the status of average because of your circumstances. Kick average in the face and tell it who’s the boss.

If you are having trouble distinguishing an average action from an above average action, do this: Ask yourself if an average person would do it and if the answer is yes, don’t do it.

Fight against the urge to be part of the status quo. It’s a disease and must be squashed.
