Dear all,

I am trying to convey the following ideas, and I also want to blend all together.

1 The enemy of success is not failure, but mediocrity.
2 The majority of people think failure is the enemy of success.
3 Mediocrity is an idea leading some people to muddle along.

Here is my try:

The enemy of success is mediocrity-an idea leading people to muddle along, rather than failure as believed by the majority of people.

Could you tell me whether the underlined part is idiomatically correct? Thanks.
