Resist the urge to be average
No matter where you are, you often see average people around you.
They would try to entice you into believing that the people around are already more like them than yourself.
However, the average person would make you sacrifice your unique ideas and goals which you are trying to pursue to go beyond average..
So you would try to live a life which is preferential to others.
For example a bad habit can be spread through a workplace like a rash, which means employees may copy the same bad behaviours as their co-workers. In the end, undesirable behaviours increase based on negative behaviour from peers.
