Over the weekend I had several conversations regarding if it is "easier" to just be an "average person." We all know average people do average things. We know they settle for mediocrity, rarely aspiring or even reaching their goals. At the end of each conversation, we all agreed that we are destined for greatness!!! Although it is a constant struggle - reporting to a job that may not pay you your worth, not being able to do what you love because you have to pay the bills - we ultimately understand that there is a BIGGER PICTURE!
I believe Jay-Z said it best in Can I Live, "I'd rather die enormous than live dormant." I believe those of us that consider ourselves to be great can identify with this statement. Everyone has dreams and aspirations but the major difference between an average person and a GREAT INDIVIDUAL is... having the tenacity and determination needed in order to achieve them. Could you imagine if Marcus Garvey was an average individual with no hopes and dreams, what about Michael Jordan, Michelle Obama, The Black Panthers, Diddy, Angela Davis, or our President??? Although being average may appear easier, why settle when we come from a long line of greatness? Wouldn't you rather your name be added to this list one day? I know I would!!
