Mediocrity the Monster Within
No one exactly aspires to be average. It’s very unlikely that your parents, teachers, religious leaders or anyone else told you that the best you could hope for in life is to be average. It’s not something we strive for but it’s something we can settle for if we aren’t careful. That’s what makes it so insidious. You don’t have to try to be average. It’s something that happens to you by default if you don’t take conscious steps to rise above it.
The problem is, once you do achieve average status, there’s not any great pressure to rise any further. In fact, there are subtle but unmistakable pressures to remain average. While we may like watching TV shows or reading about our heroes, wealthy people and celebrities, there’s a strong tendency to regard such people as remarkable and possessing rare talent or luck.
Join us as Bruce discusses the #1 topic of the year – how to break out of the trap of average and become a high performer that everyone admires.
