We want to improve and do amazing things.
Realize that there is a societal mean which we measure that against.
Some things that are common now were amazing decades ago.
It’s all relative.
If we are not vigilant this means starts to creep into our lives.
We start to lower our expectations.
This is dangerous.
So make the conscious decision to change your environment and thought patterns.
Surround yourself with growth minded people.
And if that’s not possible, constantly remind yourself of your dreams and of what you want.
Write them down, remind yourself constantly.
This will make it real and less likely for you to slip into the mean.
