6 Habits of Mediocre People (Average People)

What are the Habits of Mediocre People? Not a single person in this world wants to be called an average person. Nobody wants to be called having a mediocre mentality behavior or attitude. Nobody wants average quality in them. Everybody wants to feel special unique and talented, but unfortunately, we are surrounded by mediocrity. Our negative behavior gives negative outcome and this negative outcome makes us average. Our negative mentality never allows us to become extraordinary. Mediocrity is contagious, means if you stay around negative people and around people who are average and who are happy to stay average, then this surrounding will for sure influence you and will never allow you to move above that average quality, because surrounding and environment matters.

If you have friends who don’t have any goal, they never put extra efforts into their dream and always crib about their life. They never try to make things better they just stay negative and regret for everything. Then this behavior and average mentality of your friend will for sure influence you and will not allow you to move above that average quality and mentality, for example, one of my school friends was good in studies and he was trying to become better by putting more efforts, but as he moved to college he surrounded himself with friends who weren’t serious about their lives and who weren’t good in studies then this surrounding influenced him and because of such bad influence and environment even he failed to become better and remain to that same mediocrity. Hence understand that mediocrity is contagious but fortunately it can be cured we can do a lot about it. We people have the capability to change our mediocre mentality behavior attitude and qualities.

If you want to hear people saying you best and better then you need to move out of that mediocrity. You need to move out of that average quality and mentality. You need to prove others and to yourself that you are not mediocre. There are many people who believe that mediocre behavior is acceptable and it works. People think that being mediocre is not bad or it won’t affect them but the truth is mediocre behavior stops your personal growth mentally. The way exercise and meditation is needed for your body growth similarly even your mind needs learning and improvement, so that it can move from average quality and mindset, many times we need to push ourselves in order to make ourselves better, for example, if you are comfortable in doing 5 pushups daily then you need to push yourself and need to put more efforts so that you don’t remain mediocre. When you push your limits only then you move out from that mediocrity. Hence always try to work hard more than your limit,  this will remove you from your mediocrity.

Till the time you don’t see any consequences of your mediocre behavior, you’ll be fooled by your false sense of security, that mediocrity doesn’t matter, if you stay in your mediocrity and time comes when you need to put your best foot forward at that time you’ll learn and understand that your skills have been wasted and you have lost your edge, and at such time you will realize that mediocrity isn’t just a bad habit but it’s actually who you are, hence before reaching to this stage, understand that born with an average quality isn’t your fault but dying average and living the whole damn life staying average mediocre is your fault, and before reaching to the stage where you feel that mediocrity isn’t a bad habit but you are actually an average person start improving, start moving out of mediocrity, start surrounding yourself with people who think about their life goals, who want to do something huge and better, who doesn’t want to stay average, because ones you reach the level where you start feeling that you are average and you will remain average then moving out of that mediocrity will become difficult. Hence stay around positive people and people who love growth. Start learning new things daily. Read gain knowledge, because seeking knowledge will never allow you to stay mediocre.

  1. I feel you are generalizing too much. These are all human aspects that we all possess. Most of the world is average anyways. Most of us aren’t outstanding and that’s okay. It’s as if you are trying to put down everyone who isn’t special and blaming it on them. There are people that no matter how much effort they put in, they still struggle so much to excel over a special person. Not everyone is an amazingly intelligent genius. Not everyone has brilliant athletic ability. And it is not because we are lazy or procrastinate or our mentality. We are simply born the way that we are. Everything you described in your article are things that we’ve all done as human beings. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. We’ve all procrastinated before, felt lazy before, or questioned why life doesn’t go our way. I’m certain you have too. Sometimes it’s not even because of our adopted attitudes and behavior like you said. Let me ask you this: do you really think we are born equal? There is so much difference in class and status in the world, so most of us are just not the top 10%. We’re mostly all average, what’s wrong with that? If anything, I feel you are the one that’s too negative and this article is contagious in the sense that you’d only make average people, which is the composition of most of the world, feel less than what they are. You have such a disappointing and general view of people in the world. It’s so inflexible and narrow. I know you have the good intention of trying to encourage people to rise above mediocrity, but do you think people are actually going to be happy spending their whole lives trying to fit a character of brilliance that they are not? We’re not any less important than a special person. Because whatever someone special may lack in, we average people make up for it with understanding. You probably think you’re special and not average at all. I mean, what else would fuel the publishing of this article? This is so one-sided and generalized, extremely vague. Because we’re mostly average, we understand each other’s hardships and pain. Our feelings and gratitude and sincerity. Before anything else, we are human beings and understanding is pivotal to our essence as homo sapiens. But that’s what you lack. Your arrogance blinds you from understand just how important an average person is. We don’t need to be special. Go read Attack on Titan my guy

    1. Madam Carla fuckin Jeager tAtaKaE Your conclusion is wrong. It is not OK or desirable to be average or mediocre in the United States.
      Our society is based on competition, rewarding the best via money or hero status. This is a good thing.
      Just think about what we would not have if Edilson said “I’m just average”. One of the best examples
      is President F.D.Roosevelt who had so many handicaps but he strived to be a Hero or outstanding.
      He could have said “I am handicapped “so it is ok for me to be average or non-performing. Your reply
      that it is ok to be mediocre, average. But is not a good thing. It is not ok. As many heroes have said
      “Reach for the stars. Don’t let anybody tell you that you are average and you cannot accomplish
      anything. Never give up. No, as Americans, we must always demand the best. Do not give me a violin to play while you tell me why you can’t do lt. Don’t tell me you killed somebody because
      your childhood was bad. Or because your dad was an alcoholic. Or you went to poor neighborhood high school and
      not to a rich man high school,” I do not want to hear any excuses”. But our society does need average people with no goals like garbage people, street maintenance, cooks, waiters, tire repair, shoe salesman, etc.
      But the great thing about America. You can move out of your situation. But you must a goal”
      In America, we have many stories. “He started in the mailroom but now he is president and owns the company”. From a below-average person to a hero.
