mediocrity quote why be mediocre?

MEDIOCRE.
That’s a scary word to me.
Nobody wants to be mediocre.
People never plan on being mediocre, but somehow in the middle of being in the norm, they look back and wonder how they got there.
I guess there are those that are ok with it.

Maybe it’s that job where you feel like you don’t make a difference in the world.
Well, we’ll soon talk about finding your “genius” in no matter what vocation you’re in.
Your value doesn’t lie in the job that you have.

Maybe it’s not your job. Maybe it’s your routine.
Mediocre people don’t include exercise in their normal routine.
Want to know how I know this?

Look at these obesity stats.
That’s mediocre.

Divorce rates. In church.
That’s mediocre in this world, too.

God has called us to so much more than “mediocre”.

This all takes work, but “easy” is also mediocre.

Do you want to know how not to be mediocre? My challenge to you is to find out what “mediocre” people do and do the opposite.

Tell me, what do you think are some other things that “mediocre” people do?

    Mediocre people feel, but don’t act. Mediocre people even dream, but again they fail to act.nnJesus wasn’t mediocre because he accomplished his mission. I’m not saying our salvation is about results (because it’s obviously not), but a good way to measure if we’re letting the Holy Spirit work in us is by taking a hard look at our own laziness. How much power does it truly have?nnThat’s a good starting point.

    I feel like mediocre people are people who get up, go to work, come back home, get up, go to work, come back home, get up, go to work, come back home……They do the same thing over and over again. Sure they may watch something on TV that may get them thinking about stuff in the world but it doesn’t get them doing anything about it. They may go to church and hear something really good from the pastor’s message that got them thinking but they just brush it off, they don’t make a change or do anything different. They just stick to their routine because it’s what they know.
