Do you want to be really really successful? Move up very quickly in your job? Get that dream promotion? Make a huge success of your life but you haven’t yet? Then maybe, it’s because you are not “IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE”!

What is excellence?

“The state or quality of excelling or being exceptionally good; extreme merit; superiority”

I have met very few people in my life that is in search of excellence. Most people are just prepared to get their day’s job done and make sure they stay out of trouble. They do what is expected of them. But that is not the kind of people that become successful and get the lives they want. The people that excel are the people that endeavour to do everything as good as possible, even in their private lives. If they wash the dishes, they will make sure that it’s done 110%. If you give them the smallest job they will put a huge effort into it and do it better than anybody else can. If they haven’t got the answer they will look for it and MAKE it work.

This is the kind of people that employers get to trust, the kind of people that you will entrust with another bigger task, and bigger task, the salary increases will follow soon, because you know why? Employers want to make their life easier, not more difficult. They want somebody that they can trust, somebody that can run the show when they’re not there.They don’t want to do everything themselves. They want people they can trust… to do a job… well!

So, how do you become excellent at what you do?

We are what we do repeatedly. Therefore, excellence is a habit that you can cultivate today by starting to do everything, even the smallest task, to the best of your ability, over and over again. You must cultivate the kind of attitude that you won’t do anything if it hasn’t been done to the best of your ability. Start today by searching for excellence in everything you do, in your private life, and in your career. Try it for only one month, and see how your life starts to change.

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence ~ Confucius
