Whether you are an employee, a small business owner or running a large corporation, you must always strive for excellence in anything you do.
Sound like hard work?
Not if you make excellence a habit.
Practice excellence every day and it will become your “new normal”.
You are in charge of your life.
No one else will take that responsibility for you if you refuse to strive for excellence.
People expect excellence from their leaders, from people they look up to.
People especially expect excellence from people they hire.
These expectations will always be there.
If you are a freelance business person you are expected to deliver, with excellence!
If you are shooting at a target, you might as well aim at the bull’s eye.
It isn’t easy to hit the bull’s eye, but even if you miss, chances are you will still hit the target somewhere.
If you only aim to get on the target, there is a strong chance you might not even hit the board!
We can’t expect to get the greatest score every time we give our maximum effort.
Things might not go as planned.
We can fall short sometimes so we must aim as high as possible.
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”Norman Vincent Peale, author of The Power of Positive Thinking
In real life, when we continue to push ourselves and strive for excellence, we often surpass what we think we are capable of.
Most of the time, we limit ourselves.
We are the ones who fail ourselves.
We fail to understand that; the more we stretch our muscles, the stronger we will become.
Just when we are on the verge of giving up, hope and faith will help us to get through the toughest times and we triumph.
If you hope to succeed in business, you must go all out and give your best and nothing less.
