Allow me to get right to my point. Being normal really sucks! And here is what I mean. If you are not happy with where you are in life at this moment, it is because you are NORMAL!
If your life sucks, it is because you are normal. If you are not giving 100% effort, it is because you are normal. If you are broke, then you are normal. If you are moving from one dysfunctional relationship to another, it is because you are normal. If you are “stuck” at a dead-end job, it is because you are normal.
If you wallow in negativity, pessimism and self-pity, then it is because you are normal. If you erect monuments to your doubts and fears, it is because you are normal. If you spend time focusing on what is not working rather than focusing on solutions, it is because you are normal. If you are surviving and not thriving, then you are normal.
Merriam-Webster defines Normal – as Conforming to a type, standard, or regular pattern; not deviating from a norm, rule, or principle.
What I have found most interesting, and to be honest, quite disturbing, is how much effort people put into being normal and living an average existence. Do you know that it takes the same amount of energy to be great as it does to be normal? Ponder on that thought.
You cannot expect to live a phenomenal existence if you spend your waking days being like everyone else. You will never become the best version of yourself if you are busy being good. The masses are living their lives moving backward because they are normal. Life’s best opportunities will not present themselves if you are occupied thinking normal thoughts and engaging in normal actions. Being normal gets you normal results and average success outcomes.
Ladies and gents, here’s the takeaway.
It takes the same amount of energy to be great as it does to be normal.
Life is too short to accept being average and normal. You have fought too many battles and have experienced too many hardships and setbacks to settle for a life beneath your privilege. You have too much potential within you not to be living on your mountaintop of success and abundance.
The fact is, it takes courage to be great. And being great is the only way for you not to be normal. It also takes a certain level of mental toughness and fearlessness to ignore the noise and live as your authentic self.
Don’t you believe you have greatness within you? Don’t you think you deserve to experience life’s best? Until you accept the magic that is connected to living your life as the best version of you, then normal will continue to define your daily existence. Only those who are willing to be amazing and live amazingly will reap the benefits and rewards that the Universe has designed and designated for them.
Ultimately, the choice is yours. On the one hand, you can keep doing what you have been doing and keep getting the same average results. On the other hand, you can make a decision to accept your birthright once and for all and live as the phenomenal and amazing person you are.
