Average. It’s not really an aspirational word, is it? No one aspires to be ‘average’. Disregarding the mathematical meaning, here’s a standard (average) definition of average:
An amount, standard, level, or rate regarded as usual or ordinary:
Do you want to be living an average life?
You are extraordinary.
You are unique.
You have endless opportunities to reinvent and change yourself.
However bad things may look, there is always an opportunity to begin to make changes, to aspire to be beyond average.
Take a few minutes to think about areas where you can be, or already are, above average. Think across all areas of your life: you may be an above average friend, an above average partner, an above average colleague, an above average choir member … You get the picture. Take a pen and try to list about 5 ways you can rise above the average.
And then put it into practice!
