Extra Average

Extra average is a word that describes people who think they’re doing it big when they really aren’t.

I have an issue with people who “settle.” As the son of two doctors, I could have easily taking the comfortable route and been a doctor or a lawyer, but given that my parents chose the paths they chose to make sure I could do ANYTHING I wanted, I chose to create my own path as a PurposeFinder, Motivation Teacher, & Career Change Expert.

There are a few people who do it EXTRA BIG like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Jay-Z, Richard Branson, and Oprah. They are living to change the world or their industries.

Then there are people who do it EXTRA SMALL who are nameless and haven’t left any sort of legacy. They only lived for themselves.

And finally, there’s a majority of people who do it EXTRA AVERAGE. They only sought out to do marginally better than their parents did and they only talk about living for their kids.

Which one are you?
