What Are You Waiting For - Do Not Settle For Mediocrity (Part 2)

Do you know the hallmark of a second rater?

It's resentment of another man's achievement. Those touchy mediocrities who sit trembling lest someone's work prove greater than their own - they have no inkling of the loneliness that comes when you reach the top.

The loneliness for an equal - for a mind to respect and an achievement to admire.

They bare their teeth at you from out of their rat holes,thinking that you take pleasure in letting your brilliance dim them - while you'd give a year of my life to see a flicker of talent anywhere among them. They envy achievement, and their dream of greatness is a world where all men have become their acknowledged inferiors.

They don't know that that dream is the infallible proof of mediocrity, because that sort of world is what the man of achievement would not be able to bear. They have no way of knowing what he feels when surrounded by inferiors - hatred? No, not hatred, but boredom - the terrible, hopeless, draining, paralyzing boredom. Of what account are praise and adulation from men whom you don't respect?
What Are You Waiting For - Do Not Settle For Mediocrity (Part 2)
Have you ever felt the longing for someone you could admire? For something, not to look down at, but up to?

I have felt it all my life, says Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged!
I leave you with a quote by Jesus Christ ... Go With Them Two Miles. (Matthew 5:41 NIV)

Do not settle for mediocrity - aim to be the best you that God has made you to be - WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR - See You On The OTHER SIDE..!
