Mediocrity is the result of acceding to fear. All of us have the potential for greatness in some shape or form but it dies while on the vine when we refuse to pluck the blossom of possibility.
Fear masquerades as hatred, complacency, at times, anger or resignation. We are not intrinsically creatures of such fear, it is learned behavior, and as such, may be unlearned.
We can choose to recognize our own and others strengths, we can diminish fear by not focusing on our limitations. We can honor our greatness without apology and assist others to do the same. There are truly no mediocre people, only those who have allowed their dreams to die. Please believe in your dreams and recognize your grandeur.
