Letting Go with Guy Finley

Mediocrity is a form of madness, a dream embraced by the masses because it makes just getting by an acceptable — sometimes applauded — social art form. What is excellent requires extra effort, so those who choose the road to mediocrity will always find many shortcuts along the way.

When we go though life giving of ourselves the bare minimum to get by, it should come as no surprise to us that life returns to us the same!

Each of us receives the rewards of our efforts, nothing more, nothing less. If we don’t like the “coin” we are paid with then we must learn how to make new efforts, and stop hoping in vain that we can continue to pursue the same ends in life and expect to end up differently.
