Winning Attitude 5: Commit To Excellence

“The quality of your life will be determined by the depth of your commitment to excellence, no matter what your chosen field.”

Excellence is a choice and a state of the mind. We can all attain excellence if we set our hearts to it and are willing to work towards it. When you excel at something, in essence you have achieved the highest measure of success regarding that task. If you put a group of people in a room and ask them what excellence is, you will receive many different answers but they should have something in common: Excellence is about doing your best… And every day, we are reminded of how important it is to strive for excellence, be it in life or at work. By nurturing a culture of excellence within yourself, you open the path to success.

You must resolve to be the very best at what you do. Set a goal for yourself to join the top 10 percent of your field, whatever it is. This decision, to become very, very good at what you do, can be the turning point in your life. Virtually all successful people are recognized as being extremely competent in their chosen fields.

Your life only gets better when you get better. And since there is no limit to how much better you can become, there is no limit to how much better you can make your life. Your decision to become excellent at what you do, to join the top 10 percent in your field, is the turning point in your life. It is the key to great success. It is also the foundation of high levels of self-esteem, self respect, and personal pride. Being excellent affects your whole personality and all your relationships with other people. You feel happy and proud when you know you are at the top of your field.

You cannot become good at everything right away, but you can identify the one skill that can help you the most and then throw your whole heart into developing that skill. Find the one thing you can excel at and focus all your energy on it. Be resilient in growing your ability to become the best version of you. Don’t settle for less or give up improving because there in is the key to unstoppable success. You can determine your success by your commitment to excellence.

We live in a time where many people are unwilling to go the extra mile and you can choose to be the exceptional one in your circles. By breaking the cycle of complacency you tune yourself to succeed. Successful people are not only hardworking, they are keen on getting the job done and getting it done the right way in the most efficient way. Excellence is a mark of greatness. Aspire to excel not to simply live or lead. Be exceptional by aiming for excellence in all that you do.
