“I'm just an average guy“.
Friend, if you aspire to be an average guy then the genie will come out of the bottle and grant you your wish.
“Poof. Your wish is my command, you are now completely average. Fat belly, safe and secure job as a professional slave, nagging wife, television every single night, brand new financed vehicle every 2.5 years, 5 year old daughter dressed like a prostitute, big house with 110% mortgaged, 15 credit cards (but only 7 of them maxed), and, oh yeah, no respect.”
Hmm, you think to yourself, this isn't so great.
“Hey Genie, I have another wish…”
Genie: “You are now completely average, you cannot have any more wishes. Average men do not get what they want.”
Welcome to average world, friend. I hope you enjoy the taste of shit because you will be eating it until the day you die.
If you wish to change your misfortune, however, I have one little secret I wish to share with you:
IT'S ALL IN THE MIND.
If you wish to change your station in life, if you wish to change your luck and fortune, if you wish not to be average but to be a winner there is one simple think you must do: Start thinking like a winner and not like an average bozo.
Poor trash aren't poor trash because they are “disenfranchised” or because they are “discriminated against”. They are poor trash because they are stupid and they have the mindset of poor trash. Given a million dollars, a piece of poor trash will be broke and back on welfare within a year.
Middle income schlubs aren't schlubs because that's the best they can do, they are schlubs because they settle. They make 50 grand a year and settle, they meet a woman and settle, they do as they are told. If you can make 50 grand a year, you can make 100 grand a year.
If you can get a haggard wife you could almost as easily meet a young and nubile wife with 85% less nagging and 100% more cooking. If you can do one thing, you most certainly can do it better a 2nd time. So why settle when you can aim for perfection? Well, settling is the mark of the average man.
“I'm Just An Average Guy“. If you wish to be average you most certainly have already been granted your wish. But there is good news and there is hope.
The world is full of stories of schlubs who transcended. Schlubs who shed their skin to start again. Schlubs who lived as caterpillars and eventually emerged from their chrysalis as butterflies.
How did they achieve this metamorphosis?
They changed their mindset. They left behind the world of “average” and aimed for transcendence, they aimed for perfection, they aimed for glory. They stopped thinking like the average man and they started thinking like an above-average man.
That's all it takes, a change to your mindset. It takes one simple word added to your thought vocabulary to get you started. That word is “Above”. Think no more thoughts of “I'm an average man”, think instead “I'm an above-average man. I am not going to participate in nonsense because I am above it”. Raise yourself above average.
The thought process manifests itself into the physical. The average minded man has an average body to go along with it. The above average man has an above average body to prove it.
You have the body of a schlub? Develop the rock hard Body of a Spartan.
Never again allow yourself to become flabby and plump or skinny and weak. Flabby and plump is for the average Joe. You, friend, have dedicated yourself to molting. You have dedicated yourself to mental and physical betterment.
At least, I hope you have.
