Are You Choosing Mediocrity or Mastery?
A world characterized by stress, frustration, anxiety and overwhelm is definitely challenging. How are you to accept, cope with or transcend these conditions?
In this environment, why do some of you settle for, accept and even create “circumstances” through which you function in ordinary, average, mediocre ways? Rather than express your innate talent and true passion, you allow yourself to be and do what family, teachers or society expect, or that which “circumstances” dictate. You settle for less, play small, compromise your values and go along with the status quo. Consequently, you may experience boredom, disappointment, anger or regret about choices that have led you to an unfulfilled life.
On the other hand, you may rise above the norm, aiming higher, demonstrating excellence and freedom. You are clear about your passion and gift, the ways you want to serve. You devote your life to developing yourself as a musician, scientist, educator, minister, athlete, or entrepreneur. You become a master of your profession or craft. It’s a delight to be around you because you are clearly being and doing what you most love. You exude passionate energy, unfailing enthusiasm and a magnetism that heals, uplifts, enlightens, motivates, transforms, and more…
Which example do you resonate with? Have you chosen mediocrity or mastery? Or are you unclear and functioning somewhere in between?
I know that if you’re not using your gifts, not radiating your brilliance or simply not happy, you’re likely stressed, and it’s showing up in body, mind and spirit…in relationships, finances, work. I also know that you have the power to make different choices.
What are you choosing?
What’s choosing you?
In what specific ways do you want your life to be different?
Do you have a passion or dream that seeks to be fulfilled?
Let’s explore your options together. I encourage you to schedule a Complimentary Seeding Success Strategy Session with me.

“You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to find out what it is you love–who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your dreams.” – Oprah Winfrey
