Hello Friends! Welcome to a new week.
Yay! E is for Excellence. E is the last word in SIGNIFICANCE and it sums everything up by representing the word EXCELLENCE
This tells us that everything you do should be tending towards Excellence.
Excellence is a quality which is unusually good and surpasses ordinary standards.
Excellence comes with responsibility, Diligence and Hard work. It’s almost impossible to talk about significance and not mention excellence.
The Bible in Proverbs 22: 29 says “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men”.
There are different types of people in the world. There are the kings, people of excellence and there are mean men, people of mediocrity and just good enough. To be an excellent person and to stand before excellence you have to be responsible for it, be diligent and be hardworking.
Excellence is continuously moving target that can be pursued through actions of integrity, Persistence, learning and improving in all spheres to pursue the moving target.
In whatsoever you do, be it your profession, your business, your health, your family, everything you do. Follow excellence!
Excellence shows up in your attitude, how you dress, how you relate with people and in the quality of your work.
While success can be seen as comparing how you are doing with what others are doing. Excellence is comparing how you are doing with your potential i.e. What you are meant to do and capable of doing.
Follow Excellence, Success will Follow you.
There’s no reason to compromise on your integrity and your values, it pays to do what is right. And if you think you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have the time to do it over?
Excellence is a Habit, it’s what you develop over time and it’s what you do repeatedly. If you’ve conditioned your mind to always do things right and well. Excellence is what you’ll be identified with.
Aristotle said, “Excellence is an art won by training and habitation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
“People of excellence go the extra mile to do what is right”. Joel Osteen
Excellence is being the best you can be. God blesses excellence not mediocrity. Colossians 3:23 says “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.”
Can you recall Rancho’s quotes from the movie 3 Idiots? He said “Pursue excellence, and success will chase you–pants down”.
Significance is as a result of Excellence.
I challenge you today to be passionate about your work, be open to new ideas, be focused, Do what is right, and embrace the habit of excellence.
Excellence is an Attitude!
Have a blessed week.
