What If You Remain Mediocre Forever?

If you never make it big, will you be able to cope and still live your best life? Click To Tweet

If your business never grows to collect multi-millions every year, will you still be able to wake up and make sure your customers and clients are taken care of every day?

If your boss never offers you that promotion you’ve been waiting on, will you retire from the company?

Everyone will not hit the lottery. Everyone will not earn a six-figure salary. Every will not be able to buy their dream car. Everyone will not get married and have children.

And if these things never come true for you, are you going to be okay?

Everything doesn’t always go as planned but you are the designer, so design a life worth living.

Let’s face the facts.

There are only 76.2 million homeowners in the United States. Yet there are 327.2 million folks in this country. If the bank never gives you that loan, you still have other options.

You see all your other friends “winning” and here you are living a basic life that no one understands. They’ve all started businesses while you’re still punching the clock. Will you congratulate them and continue to feel sorry for yourself?

There are over thirty million small businesses in the US. Start one. No matter your age, it’s never too late. We can’t guarantee the success you’ll see but if you yearn to write your own checks, do so.

Depression is real. Suicide is real. The universe will kick your ass if you allow it to. Click To Tweet

But life is what you make it. If you want to travel the world, get in your car and do it. No one says you have to post pictures of being on a first class flight. No one says you have to have a million bucks to go from one side of the country to the other. I’ve traveled thirty hours by car with less than $100 in my pocket. (Thank God I didn’t catch a flat but hey, I still made it to my destination.)

Focus on letting go.

Let go of all the worries.

Let go of all the pressure from your peers, your family, from society and start living.

I spent years trying to impress everyone around me. Now I’m responsible for impressing Carrie.

And if you never make it big, who gives a damn? You made yourself happy and that’s all that truly matters.

    “I spent years trying to impress everyone around me. Now I’m responsible for impressing Carrie.”

    This is how I feel about my own life, personally. My family is concerned heavily with how we each should work to impress them, and care about image and how not all being together as a family looks, but it’s so exhausting and has a negative impact on my quality of life. The only person I focus on impressing is myself; I’m much kinder to myself these days, anyway.

    Jane, I use to follow you on 6birds! Love your new blog. 🙂 And you’re right. Trying to impress everyone else is so draining and exhausting. I’m just now learning that, the hard way. :-/
