Why do people who believe in positive affirmations still fall short? Harlan Verdie took a comedic point of view and felt affirmations that expect excellence are too big of a jump from where most people start. Harlan decided a more meaningful goal would be to shoot for a reachable level first - mediocrity. This book was the result. A simple group of humorous affirmations twisted for mediocrity. What Harlan didn't expect was the reaction of those who read the book and did more than laugh at the absurd affirmations. People started discussing how many of the affirmations hit a little too close to home. That some of these affirmations were really how they, or people they knew, really approached life. The book was handed around offices, shared at family gatherings and conversations always turned to how a particular affirmation of mediocrity was something they unwittingly said themselves. Or it was pointed out to another person, that they were guilty of following a mediocre belief. Discussions of how affirmations of excellence may seem foolish, turned into how believing an affirmation of mediocrity was actually holding that person back - and they would change their thoughts of mediocrity to one of a higher goal. What started as a simple book of humor has another level of being the antithesis of what its title communicates. Harlan's affirmations of mediocrity are funny, but they also bring about realization of truth, for some people, that they need to change their thinking and practice affirmations for a higher level. Then again, maybe you'll just find the laughs - and that is fine with Harlan.show more
