We all hear stories of ordinary people achieving greatness, of the man who rescues children from a burning building, or the female CEO who’s still Mom to four kids. Yet I look around at bus drivers and fast food service (heck, “service” anywhere), and most don’t even reach beyond mediocrity.

We’re surrounded by images of average people. Eight-hour workdays. Goofy men who pretend to be handymen but can’t fix anything. Children who mostly exist to fire quips at their parents.

The more we hear a message, any message, the more we believe it subconsciously.

Are we all limiting ourselves to averages?
