3 Reasons Why It’s Hard Being Average


Reason #1: There’s more people in the middle.

Most people are perfectly happy with “good enough.” Getting by. Taking it easy. Mass-mailing their CVs. And so on. The competition for second best is always fiercest. Instead, be unrealistic: set lofty goals based on improbable dreams and soon – where the air is thinnest – you will find yourself alone. It’s easier to have lunch with the CEO than it is to have coffee with the HR manager. Ethica shows you how.

Reason #2: Boldness motivates, boredom exasperates.

What would you do to win a set of steak knives? Mmm, probably not much. What would you do to land a dream job in a dream city? Probably a whole lot more.

Reason #3: Everyone admires (and aids) someone with commitment.

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” (William Hutchison Murray)
