Average Sucks. Learn To Be Great.
If I had to guess, I would say that you’re a dreamer. That you spend your days with your mind in the clouds imagining what it would be like if you had the kind of money needed to own yachts, private planes, and homes in multiple cities or even continents. You don’t want to be like most people, because you know you’re bigger and better than that. They’re average, and you’re above that. Most people are broke, unhealthy, and with too little time to actually enjoy their lives. They’re certainly not cruising around Croatia with a yacht full of expensive spirits and caviar. However, you have to be aware that your brain and your mind have a lot of unconscious patterns that hold you back. What kind of patterns? Well…
A BIG PART OF YOU WANTS TO BE AVERAGE
I know, say it ain’t so, right? Starting in elementary school, through a combination of education and our brain’s natural urge toward safety, we all developed a strong unconscious desire to be like everyone else around us. We want to fit in. We want to be average. We want to skate through life under the radar, performing just enough to get by but not enough to land ourselves on our own yachts. Average is safe, but how safe is average really?
WHAT DOES AVERAGE LOOK LIKE IN AMERICA?
Here’s a portrait of the average American:
Physically — 68 percent of Americans 20 and over are overweight. 34 percent are clinically obese. This average gets worse every year, year after year.
Relationships — Over half of marriages in the United States end in a divorce, a statistic that’s held for more than a quarter century.
Professionally — Somewhere between 75 and 85 percent of Americans actively dislike their jobs.
Financially — The average income in America hovers around $40,000, less than in the 1940s when adjusted for inflation. The average American saves less than $2,000 per year. Do the math: It means they can retire around age 96. Look around, and you’ll see that at least half of American households regularly struggle with “too much month at the end of money”.
