Infographic: The Top 10 Habits Of The Mediocre

Mediocre thinking becomes dangerous when it occurs at the unconscious level. The fact is, if you’re not paying close attention, mediocre thinking and habits can creep into your daily routine. That’s bad, but, that’s not the most dangerous part.

The danger is that, because mediocre thinking and habits occur at an unconscious level, their consequences can lay hidden for years.  Like any bad habit, if mediocre habits are not seen as a problem, they will never be addressed. The result is that a person wakes up one day and realizes they have a mediocre life.

What we do on a constant basis and what we incorporate into our lives are what create our future. The difference between the successful people and the mediocre people of the world comes down to their different habits. Those who are successful have set forth the habits to get them there and those who are not have many of the habits listed below. 10-habits-of-the-mediocre

    As Robert Kiyosaki said, in effect: “The poor waste their money buying junk; the working class buys liabilities like a new boat or a new HDTV; and the wealthy invest in tangible assets.”

    So save and invest – buy that first vacant lot, save enough to make that down payment on that income-producing apartment complex. Jerry Buss and his partner did that in 1959. Jerry Buss took that first investment all the way to owning the Los Angeles Lakers, many years later.

    Don’t know if this can still be done, but my great grandfather amassed a fortune of 50 million dollars, which he left to his five children, including my grandfather who inherited 10 million dollars, and all my great grand father did was invest in railroad and ocean freight shipping and passenger line stock. That is it – 50 million bucks back when that kind of money had enormous spending power. Don’t think making a fortune is that easy today, but opportunity is all around us, nevertheless.

    Nice infographic Monty. I think that most people get stuck in mediocrity due to fear, thinking that whatever they could do to get out of it is not worth the risk and that people will talk. Fear breeds compliance.
