The world is full of people just getting by. Shouldn't you aim a little higher than that? I think you should aim to be more awesome.
How do you do that? Awesome mean literally, to instill a sense of awe. Consider this - you go to a restaurant and order a cheeseburger, then they bring you filet mignon at no additional cost. Would you be in awe?
Every day the people who depend on you at work, at home, or wherever all have a certain expectations of how you will deliver. Will you be on time? Will you be pleasant? Will you care? Will you do as you promised? Identify those expectations, then exceed them. That's how you become awesome.
The enemy of awesome is the status quo. The status quo will cause you to phone it in, to be indifferent to the outcome, to not care about those depending on you.
There are more than enough pop idols, politicians, lawyers, super models, or reality television stars. They all blend in because mediocre is easy and everybody's doing it. Try something different. Just be yourself, only more awesome than you were before.
Will you accept the risk and try to be more awesome? Others are counting on you.
