A successful sportsperson could be a ‘below average’ in studies. A path-breaking scientist could be average or below average regarding other fields of sciences. We can see the success story of many average people becoming successful business magnates. The list goes on.

    It’s remarkably true that most of the people in this world are pretty average in most of the things in life. That’s the nature of life. In reality, remarkable performers or very poor performers are only around 10-20% of the population. The rest majority is all average people.

    1.) Being average is good. It gives no lofty expectations, no judgments or looks for validations and approval from around.

    2.) Most importantly, with no such burdens, one can easily pursue what they like and what they want in life.

    3.) The thought of knowing everything brings a big ego of sorts. It yields nothing fruitful. There’s no denying it. In reality, not everyone knows everything.

    On the contrary,

    4.) If you feel like you are average, you build a mind space where you keep looking for improvements and enhancements. This tendency will grow further upon seeing even a little success on the way. It always ends in progress.

    Most of all, one important emphasis here is, it’s okay to be mediocre or average. It’s as a result. Let’s take it. Let’s keep working on it. On the contrary, don’t fix ‘average or mediocre or being average’ as a goal for you in life. Life is all about ‘keep moving’ forward and keep improving.


    It is wrong to conclude that life is only worthy when one becomes great or notable or highly successful. Being average is a great advantage as it opens possibilities for constant improvements in life.

    1.) People who think themselves as average will keep looking for ways to improve themselves. They even become obsessed with doing better every day and every time. Eventually, this is how ‘up-and-coming’ positive people are made.

    2.) The person who feels average will not have stress about feeling insufficient and irrelevant.

    3.) Once you accept that you are average or mediocre, you will be free from the constant pressure to surpass everything.

    4.) There is no such thing as perfection. Even a highly successful person, could only be exceptional in a few things and not everything.

    5.) Being average is how reality works. For example: If I constantly wish to be smarter, intelligent, and excellent than people around me, I will always feel like I lack something. I will always have a sense of failure in me. This is not how you live life.

    6.) Big peer pressure, approval-pressure can be lifted from your mind if you realize that it’s okay to be average.

    7.) Top Performers will still have a feeling that they are, in fact, average or poor in many other things in life. They will always have the attitude of ‘should do better than before’. Eventually, they begin reviewing themselves and improving themselves. This quality is what makes them successful.
