Typical question being asked by people ..how much did u scored in 10th ?
Nowadays 80% has also become an average score. We all can see how competition has increased crazily these days .
There are many students who are good at other things but only handful of them are able to explore their own talent.Every person is not lucky to have great guru in their life. I am very good at dance , trekking and adventurous activities..but surroundings does affect you and so i never thought of pursuing career in such activities. Though my dad did suggested me once pursuing career in dance, but somewhere i felt it’s better to focus on studies…
If a person is not at all doing well in particular thing at least he knows clearly that this path is not meant for him but what about an average student…????
Whatever you do in life, the very thing essential is the self satisfaction at the end of the day.Life is not about dragging things which you don’t like but always trying new things ..you never know..may be you will enjoy it ..what if One feels Mediocre. Here is an article which i came across recently.
Let’s assume you feel that you’re mediocre.
You think that you’re just an average person without any valuable skills, talents or connections. You think you’re going nowhere in life, and the situation is going to continue.
That’s good. Realizing your mediocrity is the first step towards real growth.
If you notice, most people who excel at what they do were mediocre during a point of their lives. Every master was once a disaster. Once they admitted their mediocrity and decided to make it their history, they started honing their skills with unparalleled determination. Before the world knows it, they’re already performing at a completely different league. And you know what? You can do the same too.
Once you’re prepared to step up your game, gather all resources available and TAKE MASSIVE ACTIONS.
Read books which improve your mindsets. Cultivate the mastery mindset. Look for like-minded people who can raise your standards by at least 10x. Follow people who have achieved what you want and reverse-engineer their success. Make your past experience your friends. Most importantly, establish a growth mindset and believe that you can learn whatever things that others can, as long as you put in the effort and learn things the right way. Work hard in silence and let success make its noise.
Your inner demons are going to hold you back, and that’s when you separate yourself from the rest.
The demons are irrational fear, procrastination and perfectionism. These demons tell you that by moving away from mediocrity, you’re risking your life. The thing is, most people buy into their demons’ influence! Fundamentally, these demons have one purpose: To trap you in your current comfort zone. If you want to step up your game, you must expand your comfort zone. Note that I don’t say get out from your comfort zone altogether. Instead, I say expand it. When you expand your comfort zone, the demons will not fight you that vigorously, thus allowing you to grow more steadily. This is the part most people fail. If you get past this stage, the last thing would be to…
Understand that Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Great things require time. If you want to be great, that’s something great and does require time. What you have to do is to persevere and improve consistently. You don’t have to strive for huge improvements in a week or two. You just have to be 1% better everyday. Let your daily improvement compound and you would have improved by 3800% after a year. Yes, 38 times better! So, make time your friend and enjoy the process. Learn to view challenge and pain as your “quiet” mentor. They appear in your journey to teach you something.
Lastly, when you’re no longer mediocre, look back to your day 1 and see how far you’ve progressed.
