Scratching the Itch of Mediocrity

by bxrtley

Itching is an uncomfortable sensation on the skin that creates the desire to scratch. For the greats, success isn’t the uncomfortable sensation—being average is. And once that mosquito of enlightenment lands and draws your attention to mediocrity, you get restless. Your average life becomes unbearable and you now have the desire to scratch it away. There are many ways to soothe that itch, like using ointment, a good ole nail-to-skin laceration party (temporary relief) or even oatmeal. The mosquito will eventually come. And when it does, how you choose to handle your itch will determine future success.
