|Top Ten Strategies For Mediocrity
By Dr. Fred Schofield
1. Taking Action Without Planning
When it comes to your future, impulsiveness is the Mother of Regret. Considerable thought must be given to the ends as well as the means of your strategy.
2. Planning Without Taking Action
Endless preparation is worse than action without planning. Accept that practice is a work in progress. You will always have questions. Plan and Launch the ATTACK!
3. Unrealistic Expectations
Practice is a process not an event. ROME WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY. Exercise wisdom and learn to be PRESENT. Remember most things in practice take longer and cost more than the best-laid plans anticipate.
4. Reasons "Why" are Unclear
Why you want to achieve a goal is more important than the goal itself. Before taking action on anything it is imperative that you ask yourself this key question: "Why do I want to achieve this? What is my objective?"
5. Denial of Reality
It's far easier to deny reality than it is to accept it. And far too many Doctors take the easy way out. Success is information dependent, when we deny reality, we devalue the integrity of our information and enter into Confusion.
6. Conflicting THOTS
When we have not clarified OUR reasons Why or defined what Success means to us, we operate on someone else's definition. Thots and Feelings must be in Synchronicity.
7. Diffusion of Energy
Attempting to do too much, overwhelm is a recipe for mediocrity. Rather than doing an excellent job at a few chosen goals we dissipate our energies and diffuse what matters most; Energy.
Success demands Focus. It is the hallmark of all truly great practices. Your ability to focus is the key determinant of your success.
9. Doing it all Alone
Nobody goes through life alone, we all need the coaching. Put your pride aside and learn to ask for help when you need it. Learn and share knowledge for your own success.
10. Fear of SUCCESS
Fear of SUCCESS is The "BIG Daddy" of them all. Far too many dreams have suffocated and died because of it. Fear resides where knowledge is lacking; the more you know about anything the less intimidation you feel. Replace your fears with knowledge and watch your performance EXPAND.
