There is no one in the world who does not want to be good at a particular thing and be recognized for it. However, not everyone has the talent or the right attitude to achieve great things in life;therefore, we don’t see many people like that around as much as they should be.
Come to think of it, if everyone we met was doing what they love and being the best version of themselves, would the world be this dull? It would be brimming with life and energy!
However, our reality is far from it. For most people these days, it is enough to be “normal”. We always get the feeling that, no matter how many of our needs get fulfilled, something is lacking. Yet, we tend to be grateful for the current opportunities and try to hush that feeling away. You tend to be okay with the fact that you are an average person. But the point here is that everyone’s definition of a normal individual is different but yet it is hard to come up with a universally acknowledge form to recognize a normal human.
What also makes it difficult is the role of social media in it and how everything is made more and more colorful, as peoples realities get duller in the process of achieving the impossible.
We have compiled for you some signs by which you can tell if you are just an average person. If you recognize them in your behavior, the next thing you can do is try to pull apart from them in order to set yourself apart.
1.You will notice that you don’t exercise as you should. This is a major concern in the health and nutrition aspect and even in countries like U.S., Majority of the people doesn’t exercise and that does not mean that it is okay.
Currently, only a third of the population is doing the recommended amount of physical activity that is required of them everyday, according to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Most people gave issues adhering to the recommended nutritional amount, which is why the majority utilizes more than the recommended amount of sodium.
2. Another sign might be of you dealing with impostor syndrome at work. This is a common thing. This is commonly felt by the majority of employed individuals. They feel that they do not get what they deserve in the form of salary raise or promotion.

3. This will not sound good but, if your net worth is less than six figures, you are utterly average.
