Why You Should Keep Away From Being Just “Good Enough”


I do a lot of reading, praying and observing people. I have come to a few conclusions I want to share. People look at politicians, celebrities, athletes on television and in magazines even friends on Facebook and they, “I could be like any them. I’m special.”

Guess what? You can’t. And you won’t. Not you or your business.

You know why?

Because in reality mediocrity is where most people live. Mediocrity is THE elephant in the room. Not government or some person on food stamps. It is everywhere. Mediocrity is in the schools, families, business, government, relationships … everywhere.

Mediocrity is popularized. It is accepted.

Those of us who understand the disease of “good enough” as a masquerade slowly marching towards a life of futility do more because we have to.

You are either a slave or you are a big leaguer. Like the athletes you expect top performance from each Sunday afternoon you don’t except “good enough” from them but you allow it in yourself.

You say I have a big ego. Thank you.

You say I fail too much. Thank you.

You say I don’t play ball. Thank you.

You say I push people ….. Thank you. Jim Woods

Please share. Thank you.
