3. Being Average

Media and Politics tell us that every one of us can be extraordinary. We all deserve it, right? The reality can't be more different. “The fact that this statement is inherently contradictory — after all, if everyone were extraordinary, then by definition, no one would be extraordinary — is missed by most people.”

It's ok to be average.
