Some people are mediocre and that’s all they’ll ever be

Some folks will always be mediocre. They have no incentive to improve. Either they are content where they are, or they don’t think they can ever get better so they don’t even bother.

Regardless, you’ll find that some people are just plain mediocre. And that’s all they’ll ever be.

If it’s a family member, serious bummer. If it’s a friend, you might want to let most of them go.

You might be thinking “wow, what an asshole!” Well, let me at least explain myself first.

Birds of a feather

birds of a feather

You know the saying – birds of a feather flock together. It’s really old, but it’s survived all this time because it’s true. Recent studies have shown that you’re the average of your top five closest friends. That goes for everything, from how much you earn to how much you weigh.

Want to make more money? Hang around with people who make more money. Want to lose weight? Hang around with skinny people.

Is that a joke? No, far from it.

You don’t have to get rid of everyone, but…

I’m not saying to get rid of all your friends. However, you should be getting rid of your toxic friends anyways. And in extreme cases, cough Michael Vick cough, you have to let go of your thug friends, even when they’re you’re homies you love like brothers.

Your friend from childhood who is true to you, who’s always rooted for you, who’s screamed at you to get up when you fell down – keep that friend. The rest?

You always want to be improving

There’s an old saying among biologists that goes if you’re not growing, you’re dying. It kind of applies here since we are talking about life. You should be continually improving, continually getting more skills. The world is harsh. Don’t blame me as I didn’t make it so. I’m just the messenger.

So a great life hack to improve your life – improve your friends. And who knows? They might also open up some new doors for you. Step out of your comfort zone. Become better!
