You have two things to conquer: 1) the world. 2) Yourself.
To conquer the world, you must first conquer yourself. If you can successfully conquer yourself, you have won the biggest battle of all. Buddha said, “It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you.” Then you can conquer the world. You can conquer the world, you understand the world only if you conquer yourself, only if you understand yourself. If you know who you are, you can know others. If you don’t know who you are, you cannot know other people. Know yourself to know others. Conquer yourself to conquer the world.
An average work is average work, half work, incomplete work, boring work, or a dead work. You can call it whatever you like. But one thing is clear: it is an average work.
An average work is fruitless. Your work is average when you complain always about your job. Your work is an average job when you can’t wait to go home. Your work is an average work when you hate what you do. You are doing an average work when you refuse to even show up at work. Lots of people are just getting by. That is another name for an average work. An average work lacks meaning and purpose.It is meaningless. People are doing it for survival- just to pay their bills. If you are in such a job right now, it is time to start planning what to do next. If you remain there, you will not be more than an average worker. Your goal in life is to be a great worker, not an average worker. It is up to you.
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”- Steve Jobs
If you hate what you do, you will get average results. If you love what you do, you will get satisfying results, because you love it and you have invested the right resources into it. There is no free ride to success. If you want to be successful, you must do the work. You must pay your OWN price to be successful. The price to pay for success is excellent work, not average work.
“If you don’t love it, you are going to fail.”- Steve Jobs
To get the best out of life, you must prepare your mind to do the complete work. You cannot be successful without doing the full work. If you have been doing an average work, just getting by, it is time for you to change your mindset. It is time to start doing the right thing, so that you can get the right and the best results.
