Our mediocrity “story” is centered in what happened. Psychology 101 can blame our parents or environment, yet it is now time for us to depart victimhood and take responsibility for who we are today. Awareness of our mediocrity can be liberating.
This is not to invalidate painful experiences in life we have all had, rather it is an attempt to inquire as to what we decided about ourselves as a result. Next, we confront the decision as to whether it is still true or not. If so, we must be extremely mindful and vigilant to keep our success on track.
