We are all exhorted to strive for excellence these days, but as you’ve probably noticed, not a lot of people are getting there.

Who we are is average, that’s a statistical probability.

However we like to think of ourselves, the reality is probably that we are less excellent than we aspire to be, and many of us are mediocre (I myself excel at mediocrity in many areas of my life, though in some I can’t even reach that standard).

The message is, embrace your mediocrity. Revel in the fact that if you are average, you belong.
