It dawned on me the other day that I have  never wanted to be “average”. The idea of being average has always bored me and I could never understand how people could just settle for an average life through years and years of a routine existence with no real passion to dare to be different and really go for what they both want AND deserve.

Ever since I was in my early teens I would coach my friends, social groups, people on a bus, wherever I was, into going for more than they are already going for. For stepping up, making a sacrifice in some areas in life to get the most of all of it.

Growing up I was blessed to have two supportive parents. My mother compassionate and my father who is a brilliant entrepreneur in his own right himself. Was I given the silver spoon and handed everything on a silver platter? Definitely NOT. I had to work hard for what I wanted. There was always agreements like studying hard and if I needed something for my studies I could have it. And study hard I did. The idea of coaching others in areas I was not willing to work at myself was not cool so that in itself pushed me to hold myself up to an even higher standard.

Since I was about twelve years old I was on a mission, to achieve my own dreams and I still am. I have achieved a lot of what I set out to do. But there is still more to come. Now, in my maturity, I am also on a mission with a higher purpose, above my own… to cure average in others.

Being told I can’t do something is like lighting a matchstick to a tank of fuel under my ass! It fuels me like nothing else. Being told that I will fail at something is one of the biggest mistakes anyone within my vicinity can say because I will roll them down like a locomotive at full throttle! I can’t be stopped. To see others driven like that drives me even more. To be surrounded by driven people is energy!

If you have a dream then you chase it! Don’t you ever give up! Don’t let anybody ever tell you that you can’t get it or that it can’t be done!

Let not others vision of you become how you vision yourself.

Captain your ship. Lead your team. Trek the trail. Your life is awaiting you. Dare to be above average. Dare to be different. DARE TO BE YOU!

I really want to hear if this post has inspired you. Leave me a comment below. What’s your mission in life and how do you plan on helping others through it? Share it below!

  1. LOVE THIS SO MUCH!! I get it, I seriously GET it.

    I cannot and will not EVER settle for anything average or less than my worth.

    I truly believe that EVERYONE deserves to live the most amazing life of their dreams. My vision is to help others live life at their personal best in EVERY AREA- physically, financially and spiritually. And be FREE to be, do and have anything that lights them up to play life at 150%.

    Imagine waking up when your body was ready to, taking a big texta and mapping out your ideal day… and then going out and living it. Where would you be? Who would you be with? What would you be doing? And how would you be impacting the lives around you to be able to do the exact same thing?

    I believe there are so many creative souls here that are just stuck in the idea of limits. Stuck in the idea that working 9-5 for someone else is the how ‘it’s meant to be’. Hella NO to that. Living big and living the FREEDOM that is here for us- is how we should be rollin’.

    Sometimes you just need to get out of your own way!

    Thank you for being you, Ivan!

    1. THANKYOU so much for sharing your thoughts. You are awesome for taking the time and I appreciate YOU for it! It certainly pays of to dare to dream and take a leap of faith in life. You’re right… The idea of working in a 9-to-5, especially forever, HELL NO! I once heard the saying from Farrah Gray… “Build your own dreams or someone else will hire you to build theirs”. Made a big impression on me. I’m sure you can see the value in it since you sound like a an awesome dream chaser too! Thanks again and great blog yourself. Ivan Siladji
