There’s a lot of happiness in this world that depends on being brave enough to keep working when it’d be easier to quit. Nothing good gets started without getting to work —and nothing great gets finished without staying at the work.
The Way of Abundance ~ Ann Voskamp
Endurance is not just the ability to bear a difficult thing, but to turn it into glory.
EXCELLENCE IS NOT RANDOM.
It is also more than a short-term ambition, accident, or accomplishment.
It is developed by design and achieved by setting and tenaciously pursuing high, competitive goals.
The greatest champions in history have all had a long-range vision and plan of what they wanted to accomplish in tandem with a complete daily devotion to their specialization.
Having daily or weekly improvement goals to meet will help ensure that you are always working right.
Stay focused on performing daily acts of excellence in the face of temptations to get sidetracked.
The Champion’s Mind ~ Jim Afremow, PhD
FROM: LET YOUR MIND RUN by DEENA KASTOR
At the core of many of his stories was a distinction between success and excellence. Success was “having“: money, awards, status. Excellence was “being“: living your values, having them guide your daily life. Pursue excellence, Coach (Joe Vigil) would say, and success will follow.
Philippians 4:8 (NIV ~ Bible)
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
We fail because we do not decide; we do not intend. There is power for acheiving when we resolve; when we choose. Intention proceeds movement; telling another of our intention nearly always ensures our succeeding. DEBreen
