Our fear of mediocrity

Our Fear Of Mediocrity: 
By: Diane Lang
Our fear of being mediocre comes from our fear of never being enough. Our biggest fear is that we are not worthy, not lovable and/or not enough. This fear can come from a variety of places.
A childhood that put these beliefs in place that we never challenged as an adult. Are these beliefs even true? Do they serve you? Are they coming from a reliable, caring source? Are they beliefs that are outdated?
Commercials that tell us we are not pretty, thin or young enough.
Commercials that tell us we don’t have the right hair color or the right clothes.
Commercials that makes us realize we don’t look like the models or celebrities that star in them.
That we don’t have enough money to buy the latest Mercedes, Lexus or BMW.
My social media tells me I don’t have enough friends or social plans. Social media gives me the ability to compare myself to others not just celebrities but my neighbors next door.
The news let’s me know their is a lack of almost everything except for fear. The news let’s me know about all the negativity and fear in the world on a daily basis.

Instead, let’s change this fear of being mediocre and create the life we want.
Shut off the news and social media and let’s live.
Let’s take daily risks where we challenge ourselves to new opportunities, possibilities and people.
Let’s make mistakes and create failures so we can get better, learn from our mistakes and grow.
Let’s choose love instead of fear in our decisions.
Let’s be our authentic self, take off the mask and choosing to be vulnerable.
Vulnerability is a sign of a bravery and courage.
All of the sentences above equal strength, change and growth.
It’s choosing life instead of stagnation and frustration.

Always remember- you’re good enough, you’re lovable and you’re just great being the real you!
