The Average Joe

Being comfortable with one’s own skin can be a challenge. A person either chooses greatness or chooses the path of an average Joe. The average Joe doesn’t subscribe to over achievement or settle for mediocrity. Instead we will find him blending in with majority.

This posting was inspired by local public radio host Ben Merens and his guest David Martin. At Issue with Ben Merens invited David Martin to discuss his bi-weekly humor column and latest book Dare to Be Average.

David opens, “many will not become super stars and it’s ok to be average.” I wanted to call in and ask him, “doesn’t deciding that you are going to stay average therefore place you in a class of above average?” It is my opinion that by stating and accepting average, self-realization thereby makes you above average through not following others whom pressure thinking of greatness. The self-actualized are happy wherever they choose to be. Personally I do not think any one person is average, as we all have are own hidden talents. We simply choose to use them or we don’t.

While the Pilgrims worry about whether they are making the grade or justing getting by and whether the choice is good or bad, the Warrior does not worry about greatness or being average. He merely does what is in his heart, following his dreams and leaving the details for the Universe to fill in. The self-actualized warrior does not worry about pleasing anyone but himself.

Sounds pretty selfish doesn’t it? While many see the warrior as selfish, only worrying about himself, they fail to see the virtuous acts performed on a daily basis: Random acts of kindness, selfless giving of his time and unconditional Love for humanity.  It is through giving that he receives.

Stepping into the Canvas daring to be average, we unknowingly place ourselves into a group of self-mastery. Whether a superstar in the spotlight or an average Joe under the radar, there never really is such a thing as being average. Every person is unique in their own way and every person has a choice to be who they want. Whatever the choice…they are who they are…and have a choice to be whomever they choose…
