It is Easier to Succeed! 

One of my earliest mentors told me one day that when we focus into excellence, life is much easier. “You only compete against 5% of the people,” he said. If we apply the Pareto Principle, we will conclude that it is actually just 4% of the people who are focusing in excellence. That is the 20% of the best 20%. Meaning: 20% of people work towards being better than others, while only 20% of them will set their goal high enough to become excellent. Here the question is: Are you willing to go the distance to achieve Excellence? 

These two are the strongest supporters of Mediocrity: Tolerance and Conformity; actually they both are always fighting the origination rights of Mediocrity.  

Our talk here will mainly be focused on fighting those two indispensable ingredients of mediocrity. In reality there may be a few more ingredients, but it suffices to get away from Tolerance and Conformity to achieve a much better position in every profession, life condition, or activity. Do not take me wrong please: many mediocre people are very happy. That happiness stays with them for as long as they do not take a look at what they are missing by doing nothing about it. 

Colin Powell, a great strategist that I admire, wrote these valuable reflections: 

*    The less you associate with “some people,” the more your life will improve. 

*    Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity.  

*    An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people.  

*    As you grow, (the quality of) your associates will need to change.  

*    Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you
to stay where they are.  

*    Friends that don't help you climb will want you to crawl.  

*    Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream.  

*    Those that don't increase you will eventually decrease you.
