Every time you accept a situation where you are expected to be less than your best, you are accepting mediocrity.

Every time you close your mind to ideas that aren’t yours, you are accepting mediocrity.

Every moment you zone out, you are accepting mediocrity.

Why are you doing it? It’s easier to become unconscious than to challenge the status quo and push the envelope.

A father tries to help his adult son rather than encouraging him to do it himself, he is teaching mediocrity, not love.

The easy way is not the best way. What is often considered care isn’t.

Being great requires effort.

Are you willing to put in effort in service to yourself? Are you more comfortable making excuses?
