Why most people end on the path to mediocrity

  • They are not willing to fail;
  • They don't see value in learning and self-education;
  • They don’t think they have what it takes to be extraordinary;
  • They are confused about what is truly valuable;

Tim Ferriss

It’s lonely at the top. 99% of people are convinced they are incapable of achieving great things, so they aim for mediocre. The level of competition is thus fiercest for ‘realistic’ goals, paradoxically making them the most competitive.”

Most people hate failure...

...because for them,  if they suck at something, it means they suck. But this is the path to mediocrity: If they aren’t willing to fail, they aren’t able to learn. 

Hal Elrod
Repetition can be boring or tedious, which is why so few people ever master anything."
Jon Westenberg
The time you spend being jealous of others’ success is time they spent working. Guess which one is more valuable.”
