Mediocre People

Mediocre people are detrimental to your health. They mostly watch tv, web surf, gossip, complain and engage in a variety of unimportant activities. It’s always the same ol, same ol, day after day and year after year. Mediocre people don’t do anything to elevate their lives. They pitch tents, settle and watch friends, loved ones and celebrities live amazing lives. These people can do the same thing, but it takes too much time, effort and hard work.

Disappointments and setbacks could have crushed their spirits which made them cower from life. Don’t let these people affect you. Remove yourself from them because you will become a member of their cult. They’ll drag you down and fill your mind with negativity and hopelessness.

They tend to reminisce of the glory years, when they were younger and life was easier. People admired and respected them because of their looks, clothes or popularity. This state of mind keeps them stuck in the past. Now they’re overweight, underweight, miserable or depressed.

I was once a mediocre person. I hung around people who complained and didn’t do anything with their lives. Most of the time we discussed women and entertainment instead of ideas to help better ourselves. If we did, it was fleeting because we were “Watchers” of Life not participants.

I became bored with Life because my days were monotonous. I didn’t use God’s talents to better myself and the world. But one day, while recording a poetry cd with my friend Terrance I suddenly changed. He told me to stop talking in a circle of conversation because I was known for saying what I was gonna do or couldn’t do.

I still face challenges. It’s not easy. But I won’t give up. I’m a Champion and you are too. Let’s conquer the world.

    Thanks for your comment Julia. Oftentimes it can become painful distancing one’s self from a close family member. You want them to do and be better. But we have to march on and live our lives. Hopefully they’ll eventually change.

  1. If you want to be successful you should do what successful people do. If you hang out with mediocre people you will be mediocre. Of course you sometimes have no choice hanging out with mediocre family members but you can limit the time you spend with them.

  2. If we want to be successful, we must associate ourselves with people who are successful. We must find ourselves people who can be our mentors so that they can rub off their success to us.

      Your definitely right Tyrone. That’s why my goal is to continue to meet genuine and successful people so I can become a better person. Negative people weaken me. Thanks for the feedback.

  3. You have gained a powerful wisdom. Go with it and it will do you wonders. There’s a greatness in each of us, but most people prefer to be mediocre. 🙂
