Before we go any further, however, let me just point out that there’s nothing wrong with mediocrity. Many people are satisfied with mediocrity. But when it comes to chasing our goals that can significantly change our lives for the better, then mediocrity is a bad thing.
Now the thing is people who live boring, mediocre lives also have goals and dreams like successful people do. But that’s where the similarities end.
Where successful people can step out of their comfort zones in an instant and work on their new exciting endeavors, mediocre people will tie a figurative knot around their waists to make sure they don’t get separated from their precious comfort zones.
Their comfort zones have everything they hold dear. They’re not willing to do anything to put that at risk, to put it in jeopardy, not even for their dreams. Their dreams can wait, that’s what they tell themselves. Their dreams aren’t important, their comfort is. And they’d be right. We’re all entitled to our own opinions, after all.
But you do know what happens when you’re stuck in your comfort zone, right? You’ll be living the rest of your life exactly the same way you’re living right now. Does that sound exciting to you? Or does that sound incredibly boring? Imagine doing the same things over and over again for the next 1-5 decades!
If you want to get out of such a life and make your life more exciting, then you need to start testing the waters around you. Don’t be afraid to take baby steps and test your surroundings.
Most people aren’t willing to leave their comfort zones behind. This is why for a great majority of people, a mediocre life is all they’ll ever know. They’ll never get a taste of the life they’ve always dreamed of. And this is also the reason why only a small percentage of successful individuals live their dream lives.
If you want to join the mediocre crowd, then, by all means, go hide in your comfort zone and never take action towards reaching your dreams. However, if you want to join the small minority, then don’t be afraid to take that first step and start pushing your boundaries. You’ll find that your dreams may be well within your arm’s reach!
