Average is ... average. Average isn't bad, unless your goal in life is to be more than average. Average is most people. By definition, average is normal. Most people are average because most people behave the same way and do the same things (they are normal). Being overweight is normal in the United States because most people lack the discipline and motivation to watch what they eat and/or exercise more. If you want to be better than average then you must choose to do the things that others are not willing to do. You need to do more when others are fine with less. You must do different when everyone else is doing the same. In order to become above average or exceptional, you need to do what others won’t do to succeed. Most people avoid pain. We need to understand pain is part of the growth process in both athletics and life. Most people look for the easier way to accomplish something. We need to appreciate and crave hard workouts or difficult classes or challenging task. We should seek out tough competition, welcome correction, get uncomfortable, be intentional about building our own self-confidence, and make more sacrifices. Instead of being average or normal, our goal should be to viewed by those around us as abnormal!
