“The hallmark of excellence, the test of greatness is consistency”-Jim Tressel.
To stand out from the crowd takes a daring attitude. This is because you will look weird, you will be laughed at, you will appear foolish sometimes, but I tell you, when you finally get to a breaking point in your life where you soar, the same people who mocked you will applaud you.
So, what attributes/character do you need to have to stand out from mediocrity? Firstly, exceptionality, you need to be exceptional in your craft. We already have professionals; how then can you stand out, you may ask? Add an extraordinary touch to your craft so that you’re standing out from the crowd, but extraordinarily.
Secondly, you need to offer value, be it to your organization or yourself. You might ask me, what value do I give, give your time, give your money, give excellence, give quality, always endeavor to provide value!
Lastly, it would help if you pushed/persist even when all odds are against you. Persistence and consistency are two sides of the same coin. You cannot have one without the other.
