“The greatest waste of our natural resources is the number of people who never achieve potential.”
We see it all the time. Players cheer enthusiastically for their favorite pro players as they battle with wits, skill, and experience to reach the recognition of being above average. EVO is a prime example of the crème de la crème battling it out for the titles that will challenge what everyone is placed in: the mediocre. Mediocrity is too frequent of an occurrence with courage and encouragement more of an exception rather than the norm. Those who go above and beyond to obtain the highest score or collect all of the emblems exist on a different plateau than the rest of the world. Why do so few aspire to the heights of perfection or top 10 while the rest simply watch from the sidelines?
Major influences reside within all organizational social norms which are reflected in behavior patterns of any member at any time. Many organizations and cultures manage systems, processes, and structures that are more avoidance behavior regulations than proactive mechanisms. What is needed is a proactive mechanism to complement current social norms to create and encourage a more positive structural principled revolution. Mediocre will no longer be a standard when excellence becomes the norm.
Gaming Industry Leaders, Pro Gamers: I implore you. Seek out and demonstrate bravery as a habitual exercise to impact those to desire to execute valor as an automatic choice. Living a life of excellence first begins with thinking thoughts of excellence. Programming the minds with information that will set them free will change their thoughts from defeat to encouragement. If those that are often mediocre look to you as leaders and say, ‘That’s just a dream!” you tell them dreaming is a result of character building cultivation! By aligning with the right beliefs, perspectives, and facts that govern the procedures of how a game is played will hold true for them just as much in a game as it does in real life. Only optimal results will occur if you know the mechanism of a game and play it according to the rules. Life is no different.
Our role in life depends on our disposition. We should never function to accept what anyone tells us until we look at the facts according to how they operate in our own reality. Always ask yourself, “Does it work?” Life always reflects back your perspectives on what you truly align with.
Will you continue to believe your mediocre, or will you rise from the ashes and soar like a phoenix?
