Stuck in average, strive for excellence.Do you feel stuck in a rut of mediocrity? It’s a common problem in business, but it doesn’t have to define you.Mediocrity sneaks up quietly and entraps us before we realize it. We get comfortable with “good enough” and stop pushing to improve. This leads to stagnation, personally and professionally. As Nelson Mandela said, “There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than you’re capable of living” (Craig’s Quotes, 2016). However, mediocrity is a curable condition, a symptom of lacking aspiration and drive. The good news is we have the power to rise above this. It starts with seeing your potential and setting higher goals. It requires an unquenchable thirst for excellence, discomfort with the status quo, and resolve to push past fear and complacency. As Steve Jobs said, “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do” (Isaacson, 2011). We’re not here just to participate, but to dominate the market. So let’s shake off mediocrity, reignite our passion, and reach new heights. Just like with my passion for mountain climbing, the view from the top makes the climb worthwhile.
