Mediocre at Best

"I'm mediocre at best..."

This statement was uttered by NASCAR Nextel Cup, 4 Time Champion, Jeff Gordon on Sunday during a race in which he was not driving up to his potential. He was fighting the setup on his car and having a lot of problems. But he was not placing blame on his crew, on the other drivers, or on a bad day.

It dawned on me that it takes a champion - in any capacity - to realize mediocrity. The people who stay in mediocrity are complacent to be there simply because they either don't realize where they are or they just don't care. But true champions do care and do not settle for that.

Are you a champion or have you let complacency drag you down to mediocrity? Choose today to change your thinking and live as a champion!
