No one wants to be average but unfortunately, so many people fall into this category. Break out of the mould and do work that separates you from the rest of the pack through these strategies.
Attract what you want
The best case scenario is for what you’re after to come to you. Success is extremely attractive, so one of the best ways to attract what you want is by demonstrating your success. Prove to anyone who meets you that you fall in the above average category. If you want someone to consider you for your dream job, make it a point to show them why you’re that person’s dream employee. The smartest, simplest way to do that is to always put in your best effort.
Really do the work
Being average can often equate to being, well, lazy. If you know you can accomplish more but choose not to exert real effort and rise above your peers, the shoe most definitely fits. You may not get fired from your job, but you sure aren’t getting that big promotion. If you’re only making a minimal effort, you’ll only find minimal success.
Retrain your brain
The power of belief is strong and it can be both good and bad. If you believe you’re average you will inevitably remain average. However, if you believe you can be great, doors will start to open. Put some effort into convincing yourself that you’re not just another average person.
Be better than your peers
Be better than your peers by being engaged in what you’re doing. Eliminate all distractions by finding a calm environment. Carve out a place for yourself that is free from the regular demands of your daily life so you can just do the work. The best thing you can do is find somewhere quiet, but even if you are working in chaotic environs, you can tune everything out with a pair of headphones and the right music.
Don’t be forgotten
Average can also mean invisible. If you only do what is asked of you, there’s no reason for people not to forget you. People will remember you if what you do is memorable, so produce work of such a high quality that there’s no way it or you can be forgotten. One trick is to make sure what you offer is distinct from what anybody else does. Find a way to produce things that are truly unique. You can’t be average if you’re original.
