APRIL 2016!!! HAPPY NEW MONTH LOVELIES 😘😘
It’s been a long week of thinking. I was going to postpone this week’s musing till next week but I already promised. A promise is a debt 😊.
EXCELLENCE SAYS : I CAN DO!
MEDIOCRITY SAYS : WHAT IF?
At work, when I take a break from being busy, my eyes meet the above quote. “They cannot be serious” that’s the first thing that comes to mind. ‘Mediocrity says : What if?’ LOL
I don’t know what ‘mediocrity says’ but I’m almost certain it isn’t ‘what if?’
Okay, say I’m about to start something – say a project or business, it’s only normal to think what if this doesn’t work out. It’s okay to have that thought but it’s then left to me to take a decision – to listen or to dismiss. You call that being mediocre? C’mon!
The question ‘what if?’ carries some sort of doubt. So, ‘what if? = doubt – a feeling of being uncertain about something.
I don’t think one wakes up and starts doubting oneself. Different circumstances lead to doubt and instead of saying ‘you’re mediocre for doubting yourself’, why don’t we bring up solutions on how to deal with this.
Sometimes doubt comes as a result of not succeeding one or more times. (I’m really careful here not to say failure because that word carries a lot of weight).
We often go through situations that make us feel less than we are and to be honest, it’s life. It’s nothing about mediocrity.
NO ONE IS MEDIOCRE. YOU ARE NOT MEDIOCRE.
Maybe I’m reading too much meaning to it and it’s not that deep; if I don’t read too much meaning into it, who will? 😄😜
I would love to know your opinions and how to deal with doubt. Thank you
