Author of “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari,” Robin Sharma, recently said:
The victim believes the haters so stops the dream.
The icon knows that the better you become, the more you won’t fit in.
Here’s the deal.
You will be tempted sometimes to conform to the standards of everyone else around you.
To match them for mediocrity.You have a lot of people around you nudging you towards average. They tell you things like: “That’s the way we do things around here.” They are the well-meaning productivity guru who wants you to get faster, not better, and the social media consultant who is driving with his rear-view mirror.
The safest thing you can do, it seems, is to fit in. Total deniability. Hey, I’m just doing what the masses do.
The masses are average. And by definition, we have a surplus of average.
But why fit in, when you were born to stand out?
You can get better.
You must get better.
You can change the world.
