I think at times we all are consumed by fear of being mediocre whether it be in something important to ourselves or insignificant. We get down on ourselves and we spiral downwards. You see a basketball player miss his free throws at first and his confidence spirals down no matter how hard he or she tries.
Within each of us we have a soul which will never be satisfied with mediocrity. Everyone’s soul aspires. From every level it perceives another height towering above it, and pushes forward strong a buoyant in the spirit of conquest, and with no sense of weariness. We answer life’s song in a spirit of service. Service is the law of harmony as it as of love. It is in activity of others that we gain the largest freedom for ourselves.
