Can we all be average, below average and above average at the same time?
Sorry for the long story, you can start here if you didn't read any of that, but I wanted to illustrate how I could be from below average to above average in a moment's notice. This happens again and again in my life, in school I could score a 60% in a test, I get egged on by a friend and I get upset, that burst of focus comes and I score 100% on the next one. One time in high school, the teacher asked the people sitting around me if I cheated, as she can't believe a B student can write a prefect test. It happens now and then at work or in a relationship too. I would be told I can't do something because I lack skill or gift, I get upset and the next thing you know, I went on and accomplish it.
Whenever this happens, I become shock afterwards and people around me become awed and doesn't know what to think about it, but every time I fail to repeat the success and I sink back to average.
Do you think it is a confidence thing? A mental thing? What is it? Where does the energy and focus come from?
