Today, just imagine where you would have been if you have not been taking things casually, If you had been giving all what you have. If you have been throwing your whole self on what you have set to achieve.
The only thing that is a real different from you and those who making it in life is a level of passion.
This thing of being an avarage person is only existing in your mind, you are not born with it. You have set your own limit.
If a solider demands that you carry his gear for a mile , carry it two miles.
For instance, your passion is your solider. It demand you and you have to do more than its demands.
Being average is destructive and fatal. Have courage and eagerness to go far from your limit in whatever you are doing. You have to constantly break your limit.
Mediocrity life is miserable.
