Are you being sold a lie?
To get ahead in life, you just need to discover your best traits, work hard and then swim in the ocean of riches and happiness?
Fine if you were born great at something.
But for the rest us? You?
You have no world class skills. But just a combination of being ‘average’ at a small selection of things?
Yes it might be soul-crushing but just stay with me for a second..
You see, the smartest and most successful people aren’t great at one thing. No.
They are effective at just a few small things which matter.
Do you think Bill Gates is the world’s best programmer? Or the greatest speaker, salesperson or visionary?
Do you think Will Smith claims to be the world’s greatest actor? Or musician?
No. They both got great at a few skills and welded them together into something far more valuable.
Being ‘mediocre’ doesn’t mean the end. Mediocrity can turn you into something priceless my friend.
You won’t be the best at everything. No one expects you to.
Individual skills maybe common. But combinations are rarer.
If you want to succeed but have no special talent, take a step back, dig deep, find your vision and build upon your inner selection of skills.
Shake things up and disrupt the status quo. It’s the only way to become world -class.
It’s this fusion that will make you great and a super-hero my friend.
