Doing this series on “The Go-Giver” has been an amazing experience because it has cemented the laws deep into me. I had read the book twice before doing this series but it wasn’t until I started to apply the laws and consciously work out how they applied to my life, that I began to see the impact they would have both in my business and personal life. Some of the laws came easy, because I was already implementing them to some degree and others were not as easy.
That brings me to the last law and I realised, by far, the most difficult for me to apply. This was one of those light bulb moments for me! Continue reading “The Go-Giver Law 5: The Law Of Receptivity” »
“Authenticity is the alignment of head, mouth, heart, and feet – thinking, saying, feeling, and doing the same thing – consistently. This builds trust, and followers love leaders they can trust.”
The Law Of Authenticity: The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself
For social entrepreneurs, authenticity brings the greatest change and action. It is about connecting your head and your heart to do something that you are passionate about and when you do that, you will be successful and live a life of significance.
By head, I mean the thinking side, your abilities and skills and by heart, I mean your emotions, what moves you, what produces a strong reaction.When you can align your head with your heart, you will find your authentic self and work with purpose and fulfillment.

Excellence is defined as a talent or quality which is unusually good and so surpasses ordinary standards. It is also an aimed for standard of performance.
Excellence to me is all about living to my highest potential and living my best life. It is about going above and beyond the ordinary. The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence regardless of their situation or circumstances. Excellence requires your focused effort and devotion. It comes from your commitment to getting it right.
Excellence needs to be a habit not an act. The pursuit of excellence takes practice and perseverance. I find that people tend to feel that they don’t need to pursue excellence in the small stuff. Its the old attitude of “She’ll be right mate” or “Near enough is good enough”. So many kids and young people today are big dreamers – they want to be famous or do amazing things. I love this about this generation but they need to practice excellence now…where they are, we all do! If you desire to achieve excellence on a large scale, you must develop the habit in the details along the way. That means in the everyday tasks, or in the job you don’t like, until you get into the job you love. There are unlimited possibilities in life, and the limitations boil down to us – our mindsets, our skills, our knowledge, etc. The thing is, all of us have unlimited potential and it’s up to us to unlock it. Only by consciously growing every moment and continuously challenging our limits, will we truly be living to our highest potential and living our best life.
There are no accolades for average performance, so whatever you undertake carry it out with excellence. There is no limit to what you can attain with ongoing, continuous progress toward excellence. Excellence is well worth all that effort and commitment. When you live with excellence, you live at life’s highest level.
The whole world is lifted higher by those who choose to create excellence. Be a source of relentless excellence and truly make a difference.
