Choose Excellence Over Mediocrity

 


Visitors: 205

Last week we looked at success and smart living. Today I seek to make the nexus between excellence and mediocrity and the way to go if what you desire is absolute success without any shadow of failure.

If you desire real success in the order of Napoleon Hill, Clement W. Stone, or Ford among countless others, the surest way is to commit your life to the pursuit of excellence and reject mediocrity.

Often many of us are contented with the word good, but after carefully studying the lives of these men, I discovered they burnt the bridge of mediocrity in their pursuit of excellence. To them, life must be well decorated in the rainbow colors of excellence for real success to show forth.

If you earnestly want to be successful and live a life of affluence, nature would demand that you dump your attitude of merely looking forward to achieving a life that celebrate good effort for an attitude that will pursue best in all things, which edifies excellence.

Like Dianne Feistein once put it, “to succeed in life, you must play better than everyone else". But let me hasten to add

Like Dianne Feistein once put it, “to succeed in life, you must play better than everyone else". But let me hasten to add that to live a life of your dream and enjoy the affluence that comes with it, you have to live beyond the rule.

Take a short time today to examine your life and to think about those things that could improve the quality of your life tremendously. Take time to write down all impressions that flows into your mind through the subconscious.

Your responses to your quest may be as simple as improving your inter personal skills, or acquiring better education, or securing a larger and more roomy accommodation that could give room for closer affinity between you and your spouse as you look forward to raising your children.

It could also be seeking a better understanding of your relationship with the God within or a deeper understanding of the philosophy of wealth creation in order to break away from the rat race that Robert Kiyosaki talked about in his book rich dad, poor dad.

Think of how your life would be if you achieve that single thing that meant the world to you. Note that the only thing you need to move beyond mediocrity to excellence is in you. A simple items that all of us often trivialize Your Will power.

Your will separate you from the crowd. It will create a place for you among the kings and princes. It will ensure you get the best out of your life with little sweat. It ensures your ticket to success. It gives you the vitality even if challenge is as high as Mount Everest. See you at the top.
