THE BARRIERS OF EXCELLENCE - 2018

Excellence is characterized by the quality of life we live. How we think about ourselves and take care of ourselves, not just physically but also spiritually. Excellence is characterized by the quality of life we live. I don’t necessarily mean wealth but rather health and well-being, and also mental serenity. If we breathe good thoughts in our minds it can have a positive impact of what we do or say in the future. “The quality of life we live is directly proportional to our commitment to excellence.” Here are six of the most common reasons why I believe I have failed to pursue excellence. These have resonated with me in the past and I feel like many people are struggling with the same thoughts today.

EXCELLENCE HASN'T BEEN MODELLED FOR US

WE DON'T BELIEVE WE CAN

WE DON'T BELIEVE WE DESERVE TO

IT'S MUCH EASIER NOT TO EXCEL

SLEEPWALKING THROUGH LIFE

WE FEAR IT
