Why You Should Commit To Excellence

If you study the lives of achievers you admire, you’ll realize this: they show a strong commitment to excellence in their chosen field. Great musicians, athletes, business people, clergy people, professionals, architects, writers, artists, etc.—all strive for t excellence. Great families, teams, and organizations do the same. These individuals and groups refuse to give in to mediocrity and settle for average. They pursue excellence and because of it, they get exceptional results.

If you aspire to greatness and exceed expectations in your chosen field, you must commit to excellence. There’s no substitute for an unfailing commitment to excellence.

1. You Stand Out More

A commitment to excellence puts a spotlight on you; when you pursue excellence, you stand out and get noticed. Excellence speaks, and people must listen. Excellence surmounts any disadvantages you may think will hamper your progress, be it your race, gender, social status, etc.

When you commit to excellence, you break free from any limitations and rise up above the crowd.

2. You Grow More

A commitment to excellence shields you from the sting of complacency and mediocrity. The pursuit of excellence propels you on the path to self-improvement, pushes you to never stop reaching new heights, and inspires you to grow continually.

When you commit to excellence, you accept that you won’t arrive at a place where there’s no more room for growth; you always seek for ways to become better at what you do.

3. You Discover More

You’re endowed with great potential. In fact, there’s so much greatness in you. You can be more and do more. And a commitment to excellence pushes you to perform at your best and by the same token, to tap into your potential in new ways; you never stop pushing the limits of what you can do, and this forces you to maximize your potential.

When you commit to excellence, you discover all the greatness locked in your soul.

4. You Contribute More

A commitment to excellence motivates you to produce your best work. You won’t allow yourself to cut corners and botch your work. Producing substandard work isn’t for you; you take pride in your work and want to make it as great as you can. And this increases the value of your contribution to the people you serve: your customers, your organization, your family, etc. It adds the little “extra” to what you produce and it raises the level of your production from ordinary to extraordinary.

When you commit to excellence, you make your best contribution to the world, and we’re richer for it.
