To be “normal” is the ideal aim for the unsuccessful, for all those who are still below the general level of adaptation.

But for people of more than average ability, people who never found it difficult to gain successes and to accomplish their share of the world’s work – for them the moral compulsion to be nothing but normal signifies the bed of Procrustes – deadly and insupportable boredom, a hell of sterility and hopelessness.~ Carl Jung,CW 16, Page 161
