Just say "NO" to MEDIOCRITY

Mediocrity- the state of being mediocre.

Mediocre- of only ordinary or moderate quality; neither good nor bad; barely adequate:

My teacher, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan once stated about mediocrity "nothing that God created was on accident. Everything in His creation is an excellent creation. From a tiny blade of grass; to a bird; to a bee, to a planet; and to you and to me, we are manifestations of His Excellence. Therefore, we could never be satisfied with mediocrity, because mediocrity is not of God." With that being said, Mediocrity isn't for you bro! Sis!!!!

Despite our current situation, or circumstance. We are being given a wonderful opportunity to manifest what is lying dormant within. Inside of every black man and woman is god (Psalms 82:6). Growing up in the church, mosque, temple, etc. we've heard about the greatness of God! What God has the ability to do! I remember hearing the elders in church say that "my God can do anything". Well, if God, the creator who creates everything in excellence, has the ability to do anything. It would only make sense that He would place in His creation, the ability to do anything that the creation is capable of thinking to do! The Book of Proverbs(23:7) reads "for as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he". The "heart" is the core of the mind. Just think of a time when you were asked to remember something "by heart". No one was asking you or me to remember anything with the organ that is behind(to the left) the breastbone. However, when we take in information, and memorize that information, that information has been imprinted on the core on our mind. So, could it be that our mediocrity is a direct result of mediocre thinking?

The book of Romans(12:2) states "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind," Transformation does not come by way of new clothes, cars, cities...not even conversation(saying out of our mouths what we have not yet mapped out a strategy to apply). However, the scripture is telling us that transformation(to undergo a change in form, appearance, or character;) comes by way of a renewed MIND. Therefore, mediocrity is a state of mind. A state of mind that we have allowed to ourselves to take on because we have believed opinions about us that GOD did not verify. Let look at some things that God, and His messengers said about us....

Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."

1 Corinthians 3:16 "Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?"

Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High."

John 14:12 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father."

These are just a few verifying statements to reassure us of who we are, and WHOSE we are!! We are from God, THE MOST HIGH!! THE ALL KNOWING!!! How dare us allow ANYONE to minimize the contribution that we have the ability to add on this beautiful planet that has been created by OUR FATHER!

The Holy Qur'an says that "hard trials are necessary to establish truth". If this is so, let us allow these hard times to re-establish the truth in us mentally!!! We are bigger than the job that may have been lost! We are bigger than the current circumstances that we my be facing!! We are gods! Children of THE MOST HIGH! And as children of THE MOST HIGH, our father has given everything that we need to live the life that we desire to live. WE must first, "be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind" to disallow mediocrity to reside inside of our heads any longer! May Allah bless us all to begin manifesting our gifts, skills, and talents to the best of our ability!! Growing into the best valuable final product that will be pleasing to God.

Until next time, As-Salaam Alaikum!!
