Most people do not go for their dreams because they think it’s impossible to achieve them. Most people would party now and suffer later and when they fail they pick up a beer rather than a book. I think that’s why most of the people are average in this world.
In a recent study, it has been found that on an average there is only one capable leader among one thousand people. Another shocking stat is that 96 percent of the world’s total wealth is held by only one percent of the world’s total population.
Are you wondering what makes that one person a leader and why almost all of the world’s wealth is in the hands of 1% of the total population? In short why almost 96% of the people in the world are average and only 4% are great?
All great people have these 4 qualities in common that make them different from the average ones. They have:
- Big dreams.
- Boarder vision.
- Fear of being average.
Many people want to be rich, famous, and powerful but, the problem is that they think too small. They fear to think big.
Here is a list of 20 things that average people do that prevent them from being successful. So if you are doing any of these things then it’s high time for you to move on and embrace ‘the qualities of a great person’.
Here is a story on small thinking:
A drug clerk who was a licensed pharmacist earned $100 a month plus his commission on sales. He thought, ‘after 20 years I will retire and will have a pension.’
Once his friend asked him, “Why don’t you open your own store?”
His answer was, “I have no money and it is too risky and it’s better to play it safe.”
Average people always make excuses that they have no money or it’s too risky or that they are not lucky.
I just want to ask you a question, ‘Did Dhirubhai Ambani, Steve Jobs, Lance Armstrong had the most perfect circumstances?’ I can give you countless examples of people who had no money even for their basic needs but, they all had courage, big dreams, vision, a desire to be great and the fear of being average.
Barack Obama was a common black person who became the first black president of the United States.
Narender Modi was a tea seller but due to his hard work and his dedication he became the Prime Minister of India and now he is the 8th powerful person in the world according to Forbes.
Ralph Lauren worked at a store as a clerk but he always dreamt big and now he is a $7 billion fashion icon.
“You can be the destroyer of your life or the creator of your destiny, the choice is yours”
Here is a motivational video of great entrepreneurs who had no money when they started their business but their dreams were much bigger than excuses and they ended up creating ‘Business empires worth billions.’
You are the greatest:-
No one wants to live an average life, but they do because they don’t have the courage to work for their dream life. Their fear of failure holds them back.
“Successful people are motivated by their fear of being average and unsuccessful people by their fear of failure”
You are the greatest person ever born on this planet, you can get whatever you want, it doesn’t matter how big it is. You can have your dream house, you can be a movie star, you can be an international icon, you can be a multi-billionaire all you need to do is believe in yourself and work hard for what you want in life.
Go for your dreams and chase your ambition. Develop an unwavering confidence by knowing and realizing that nothing can prevent you from achieving whatever you desire. You can have respect, mansions, supercars, fame, success.
Remember, you are the captain of your ship and the master of your faith and if you don’t believe in yourself then no one else will. So what you are waiting for, just go out and be all that you want to be.
Life is too short to be average. Choose to be different because success is a matter of choice not chance. Choose to be the greatest. Have the courage to try and stand out in the crowd.
Stand in front of a mirror every day and say:-
I am the greatest. I am the greatest person ever born on this planet. I am the greatest and no one is better than me. No matter how bad it is or how bad it gets I am going to make it. Repeat this exercise daily. It will definitely help you gain courage and self-confidence.
It’s possible for you to live your dream life:-
