M for Mediocrity #AtoZChallenge

There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones who have their lives sorted out, and the ones who have no idea what they're doing. If you're among the latter, welcome to the mediocre club. We have been rowing our way ahead with no sense of direction. We have let ourselves be guided by the flow rather than our choices. We have successfully made that majority which goes unnoticed.

You see, we have been building the podium for that minority who succeed. We're the reason they're on the top. We keep trying to climb ahead only to end up tumbling over ourselves, not realizing that we make the very mountain that the winners climb over. The joke's on us if we continue to try, because either way, we'll remain to be the muddle in the middle.

Of course, in our young days, the shower of motivation fuels our vigour. We believe in the success that follows a thousand failures. We believe that perseverance and hard work always lead to victory. And yet we find ourselves toiling over sleepless nights in futile, to wake up and watch the winners-to-be reap results while we do not. We spend our days sighing and worrying about ever being able to make the mark. The thought then finally sets in, that perhaps we were tailor-made to stay average after all.
