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.
