Excellence is the outcome of desire, dedication & discipline!

If you approach life with excellence then all you do can become a path to all-round development. But, infusing this quality of excellence calls for discipline and character. It is not about competing with others; it is about enhancing your own abilities and competing with yourself.

Excellence requires consistent pursuit and practice. As Olympic swimming medalist Mark Spitz put it, “We all love to win, but how many people love to train?”

Once you make excellence a habit, a quality of all that you do, it becomes a part of your DNA.

And you might realize along the way that it is paradoxically easier to be excellent than to be average. Sometimes excellence can be as simple as doing what you love! And doing it very well. In fact, this kind of energy is infectious and motivating, not only to your team but also to your customers.

Striving for excellence means going the extra mile in everything you do. Many people settle for expediency: doing just enough to get by – maybe due to time constraints or a lack of energy, passion, or even resources. What they don’t realize is that they may be taking a shortcut to failure. Going the extra mile is a long-term success approach.

But this long-term approach requires not only an exemplary start, but also a steady approach to sustain you, and rejuvenate you on the long road ahead.

The good news is that it is never too late to achieve excellence — as long as you are committed to it, and are prepared to exercise the desire, dedication and discipline required.
