When mediocrity becomes the accepted norm, excellence dies a painful death.
The need to be the best or to do exceptionally well which is excellence is what really spurs one to do better and become better in all things. Attaining the best doesn’t always come easy. It takes alot of hardwork and consistency. It takes doggedness and a never relenting spirit. Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown, they say.
Over time, this exceptional attitude of people have made them become people others look up to. We then began to have people who could be emulated probably because of how they did things or because of their achievements, and mentorship was birthed. This act has allowed for continuous achievement of people from generation to generation.

But, what then happens when the people who are supposed to be looked up to don’t live up to their expectation? What becomes the fate and the future of the coming generation when there is no one to put them through and help them prevent avoidable mistakes? How do we survive when the supposed mentors are not worth emulating? What do we do when people shack in their responsibilities out of non-chalance and ignorance?
The ‘let my people go’ and let’s just accept it like that’ attitude has robbed us all of the best and potentials. I remember buying an undone toast (for my belle) from an eatery. I ate it like that and I didn’t feel okay for the rest of the day which cost me missing classes.
Only but a few give attention to details and do the best. Our actions today definitely affect the future… In all these let individual seat up and take charge of his actions because there is someone somewhere who is looking up to you, to be like you, so don’t mislead them and give meaning to every details of your actions.
