Only Mediocrity is Safe

I was reading the weekly Genius Tip from Genius Coach Otto Siegel ( this morning and it started the brain cells working overtime. I began asking myself where I am currently following the thinking of the masses. Continue reading to see if this question applies to you as well. Are you buying into the thinking that mediocrity is the best you can expect to be in these chaotic times?

Remember Marianne Williamson’s famous poem “Return to Love”? She writes:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light that frightens us, not our darkness.”

Then I heard it again from Paul Coelho: “Only mediocrity is safe. Get ready to be attacked, and be the best.”

And finally my assistant Mariana showed me Sarah Robinson’s blog where she talks about a very common observation when collecting crabs at the beach: “More often than not, as a crab would begin to inch its way higher to the edge of the bucket, the other crabs would latch on to him and pull him back down.”

Crab mentality is actually an official phrase and roughly means “if I can’t have it, neither can you.” And it is talked about. A lot! Most likely it is one of the biggest obstacles to unfold innate genius all the way to a level of brilliance.

How about finding a community of passionate people who build a ‘crab ladder’ to aid your escape from the bucket of mediocrity? People who will not buy into the thinking of the masses and won’t let you buy into it either. But rather aid you in looking above the minutia of the world to a higher level of thinking and being. As you read this genius tip, you might have just found this kind of people. How does that sound to you? Stay connected…

How many people do you have in your life right now who know your deepest desires  and support your brillance to manifest them?
