Excellence is an attitude. You have to develop the conviction that you will not do anything that is not to the best of your abilities at that particular point. Have an attitude of excellence, and then put your actions where your mouth is. Discipline yourself to always do, speak, act, and react better. Learn something new every day. Get a coach when the time seems right. Follow your action plan relentlessly. Never settle back on those past accomplishments. Wake up hungry for the next higher result or achievement. All these feed your ambition and drive so that you don’t fall into a different dumpster.
“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal –a commitment to excellence –that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” Mario Andretti
