Daily Word: Stop Being Average!!

AllHipHop Staff

Happy Wins-Day, my Over-Achievers!

Welcome to an above-average day where you can make the above-average happen! Today's Daily Word is dedicated to saying no to the mediocre and yes to excellence! When you become average, you would rather be certain you're miserable, than risk being happy! When you risk being happy, you only do the bare minimum, instead of maximizing your full potential! And when you don't maximize your full potential, you die unfulfilled!

Don't die unfulfilled! Switch to excellence, and leave mediocrity alone! We are all put on this earth to be the best that we can be, and live out our truths to the fullest. Those who are comfortable being regular can never become great, because great always sits on the north-side of average! Only those who dare to do the extraordinary can make the extraordinary happen!

As Lou Vickery once said... “Nothing average ever stood as a monument to progress. When progress is looking for a partner, it doesn't turn to those who believe they are only average. It turns instead to those who are forever searching and striving to become the best they possibly can. If we seek the average level, we cannot hope to achieve a high level of success. Our only hope is to avoid being a failure.”

“Don't be content with being average. Average is as close to the bottom as it is to the top.” -Unknown

“Average is like having one foot in ice water and one foot in scalding water - on the average you are comfortable." -Unknown

“The average man doesn't want to be free. He wants to be safe.” -Henry Louis Mencken

“The average is the borderline that keeps mere men in their place. Those who step over the line are heroes by the very act. Go.” -Henry Rollins

"If excellence is an option why even settle for average?" -Unknown

“Excellence consists not in doing extraordinary things, but in doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.” -Angelique Arnauld

“Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will.” -A. W. Tozer

“Do a little bit more than average and from that point on our progress multiplies itself out of all proportion to the effort put in.” -Paul J. Meyer
