How do you know if you are pushing yourself Everyday or performing at an average level ?
This can be different for everybody considering what may be a major accomplishment to someone may be just another day to somebody else.
So how do you know if you are living an average life or going to the next level ?
Let’s start with the definition
What is mediocre ?
is that mediocre is ordinary: not extraordinary; not special, exceptional, or great; of medium quality;
Now this comes down to the simple point of are you looking to live an ordinary life or are you wanting more the most people ?
Now this doesn’t have to necessarily be monetary and here’s what I mean …
Maybe your goal is to help feed children or set up a program that helps save animals and get them into loving homes , but the same principle applies here . To get that done and to build it you list likely will need to work hard , stay focused , and do things most people don’t do .
- Find a property
- Get funding
- Set up a non profit business
- Hire employees
- Etc etc .
So you see average vs not average applies to anything .
Maybe your goal is financial independence and you want to buy the mansion the cars and so on . If this is the case as well you would need to set up your daily actions and habits accordingly.
- Business or corporate world or both ?
- Burning the candle at both ends
- Etc etc .
Both of the above examples require you to be above average and become an achiever .
5 steps to moving to the next level and shifting your mindset:
- Define a clear Vision
- Set your mission statement or your why for reaching the goal
- Write out your plan – whatever you are doing needs to be done on purpose
- Set short term and long term goals
- Share your vision to build your core team
One of my favorite movies is million dollar baby with Hilary swank.
The story is about a female who wants to be a boxer , has nothing else in life , and is willing to do whatever it takes to get there . She’s over the age of MOST boxers who “make it” and is told time and time again “you will never make it” “don’t get started “ “ just give up now “ but this does not stop her and she forgets on .
I’m not going to tell you how it ends but what I want you to get here is 2 main things
- Her vision was clear defined and %100 locked in
- She took action and kept getting back up in the face of extreme adversity and negativity
So what are you waiting for is the question ? Is there a project , business , or life change you have been putting off ? If so ask yourself why ?
Now is the time to get started .
Go through the 5 steps and begin the process.
As you move through the steps above you will discover things you maybe couldn’t see before and your plan will begin to take on a life of its own which will eventually lead to action which will lead to progress !
This will be a 12 part introductory series and in Part 2 we will discuss how to create new habits, drop negative habits, and predict your production .
