Do Not Settle For Mediocrity

By: Amuro Wesley

To achieve real success, we do not simply settle for mediocrity but should always strive to achieve the most of out of life by giving our best. It is only when we are under pressure and yet keep pushing ourselves to do better then we deserve success and have others complimenting us.

Success in life depends entirely on self-discipline, focus and being capable of managing hurdles which only exist to distract and test us simultaneously in our quest to be the best. When they come, they usually appear in the most severe forms that can make or break our spirits.

This is what separate the winners from losers. This is also what separate the champions from wannabes in every content and competition. Or the successful from unsuccessful.

Everyone wants to succeed and make a lot of money. But the truth is few will take action to do what is necessary to achieve their goals despite knowing this is what they should do. They are looking for instant get rich quick ways such as winning lottery or cash prizes as salvation out of their present mediocrite lives.

How badly you want success is shown not just through your words but your actions and heart. People may not see it initially but it does not matter. What matters is how you react and whether you are doing enough to achieve. Such as going the extra mile, spending more time and going all out to learn from those who are already successful in what you want to do.

Whatever we do in life, we need to start from somewhere. It is just like a marathon or any other competition. Everyone starts out well upon the firing of the gun, whistle and from the beginning. It is in the middle or the rather, the process I called, that we are being tested in our desire. It is never easy as the going becomes tougher and tougher every minute.

Some will give up and surrender which automatically disqualified them from success instantly while others will persevere. Then it draws down to which of those others finishes as third, runners up and champions.

Those who possess the winning streak, with a little extra push, focus and final sprint towards the finishing line are the ones who ended up as champions and deserve all the glory they can get from the audience.

Tiger Woods, Michael Schumacher, Michael Jordon, and even the German national soccer team are examples of those in their sporting and career fields. Whether they finish as champions or not, they keep fighting till the very end. Even if they faced obstacles, they come up with alternate strategies very quickly.

Like it or not, we have to adapt to these unexpected changes which will occur from time to time.
