Why always outperforming; what is the problem if we stay average?
Is it always necessary to be the best & outperform others? Can we not accept being average? Your thoughts can be shared here...
Human nature is about always trying to have the best. Seeking the best in everything makes them to maybe spend more, efforts have to be applied more, stress more, and at the end heavy pressure.
I am not saying that one should not be best. We should always try and perform really good every day, be it in studies or job. But in the race of being the topmost person, there are some people, who work hard, but they cannot get through and they remain as average. Although such people would have equal or even more knowledge than the topper one, it is just that they are not able to show up their scores. Even in workplaces, everybody works their best, but few employees are selected for promotion or increments, whatsoever may be the reasons. And what happened at the end, some of them might be called as average and not the best. What could be coming to their mind at the same point in time? They must be thinking "Why we did not perform best or why we did not get the reward"?
My question is why creating differences by repeatedly saying one person outperformed and the other did not do it? It affects the other person sometimes deeply. People who are at the top will get special attention and those who are average will be sometimes disregarded. Sometimes parents force their kids to top the class always, this makes the kids be under pressure to be at that position. Understanding a child's capability is very important, do not force them, everybody has their own choices, they will always do good in that.
I just mean to say that everybody has their own importance and capability. We should see all with equal eyes. Being the best is not necessarily good. It is too a lovely experience to remain entirely average and normal person and enjoy the moments.
We do not have to make life a stress but a memorable book which we would love to read, so think it that way and stay happy!
