The world is full of people just getting by. You should aim a little higher than that.
The people who depend on you at work, at play, and at home all have a certain expectation of how you will deliver. Exceed that expectation. That’s how you become awesome.
There are more than enough pop idols, politicians, lawyers, super models, reality television stars. Mediocre is easy and everybody’s doing it. Try something different. Just be yourself, only more awesome than you were before.
