Probably daily, in some form, you hear that nothing but the finest will do. Frequently, then you hear a description of what’s the best. This notion that there’s better, better than you have, or better than you imagined, often comes out of a product marketer who attempts to sell you something. You may not purchase the merchandise, but did the marketer market you doubt (about yourself)?
Statistical averages of measurement on many subjects, including individuals, tend to show a normal distribution of this subject as a lone bell curve, where the median is a line drawn down from the maximum point from the curve into the base. For a population of individuals, we would expect to find most people to be at this stage and inside the bell of the curve. The best people are where the curve tapers into the right and the worst in which it tapers to the left. From this place of discussion, we can go anywhere, but I wish to point out to you that the average is a fantastic place for people to be. That’s where most individuals are, with their loved ones, their friends, and their colleagues.
Happiness might not accrue to individuals who embark on being the best at anything. We respect those who become the very best of something, but we also see quite often that people who reach the best, become profoundly unhappy because they don’t know where to channel the drive that got them to their own pinnacle of accomplishment.
The art of the typical life is the way one lives it every day. It’ll be better for those who have principles, an inherent morality upon which you anchor yourself and others that matter to you. Are you an ordinary person who can’t find time to play with your loved ones and friends because you’ve got another job, attend night school, commute two hours to work every day, or live vicariously through a video game? Perhaps you should assess your face to find out if a smile is not there.
