Average is ... average. Average isn't bad unless your goal in life is to be more than average. Average is most people. Average is normal Most people are average because most people behave the same way and do the same things. Being overweight is normal in the United States because most people lack the discipline and motivation to watch what they eat and exercise more. If you want to be better than average then you need to do the things that others are not willing to do. You need to do more when others are fine with less. You need to 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. Enjoy pain, crave hard workouts, seek out tough competition, welcome correction, get uncomfortable, be intentional about building your own self-confidence, and make more sacrifices. Be abnormal!
