A gift from my grandmother, this book has been a regular source of strength to me in tough times, and it has encouraged me toward excellence. Among its greatest assets are its ability to inspire courage through adversity and to reinforce srong values, even when those values seem to make one unpopular. Including many relevant and inspiring stories from the Bible and from life in general, this book has a permananent place on my top bookshelf.

Mediocrity equals boredom and frustration. Living above it is Christian, it is the abundant way of living Jesus taught. In this book based on the Scriptures, Chuck Swindoll shows you how to apply principles that result in living purposefully and joyfully.
Like similar writers, he starts by explaining it all occurs in one's mind. When one's thoughts are right, proper actions follow. Being conscious of the invisible, eternal Kingdom of God is the awareness that changes one's perception from things seen to those unseen.
He writes about resisting traditionalism, greed, and discouragement. His advice is practical and doable. This is a hands-on book designed to set you apart from those who are satisfied with the status quo. It is a challenge to rise above the fray to a higher level of existence, one based on God's Word.
Vintage Swindoll! May 12, 2003
Living Above the Level of Mediocrity is yet another fantastic title by Charles Swindoll. The gist of this book is the need for us to live above the level of just doing enough to get by.
Among the many principles Swindoll covers are:
1. Encouragements for standing tall. 2. Problems with the world's system. 3. Be willing to minister to others out of the limelight. 4. Soaring takes effort and requires eliminating negativity. 5. Following Christ will cost us relationships, possessions, and personal goals/desires. 6. Characteristics of people who positively impact others. 7. Defining vision, determination, and dreaming. 8. Observations about conformity to other people's standards.
Read it and be encouraged to soar like an eagle!
