Mediocrity will eventually kill our creative souls.
Settling for “good enough” is the lie that takes away our ability to be fully alive. No one starts life with a mission to be mediocre. Strive for greatness.
Greatness does not require perfection nor money nor fame. It’s not about how many people like you, recognize you or reference you. Greatness could care less about who gets the credit. Ironically, greatness is not about us.
Greatness is found in the integrity that can only come from a life that lives out his/her intended design for the benefit of others. Yes, others.
Contrarily, mediocrity is actually a self-consumed, self-preserving behavior that diminishes the true value of personhood and suffocates the purposes originally designed within us to benefit others. In other words, mediocrity is one of the greatest expressions of selfishness.
