We often hear the quote by Aristotle about excellence is a habit.  This is a true statement.  Excellence is what we do to become successful, whether in work, in school or in life excellence sets the standards for what we do and how well we do it.  Think about the sports stars and Olympians, think of the number of hours of practice they put into being the best in their field.  It requires that they work and practice and try and fail and ultimately what they cultivate is an atmosphere of excellence.

In this society I believe that the Spirit of excellence is missing in many ways.  People today are always searching for a quick fix or for the easy way out.  No one wants to do the hard work it takes to be great at things.  Yes there are some that do but there are others that simply want to sit around and wait for things to fall into their lap.  Work and repetition are the sure things that will make this happen and the sooner more people realize this the better off they will be.


Excellence must be cultivated and worked on.  In order to be great and to be successful you must work hard, hustle and do the same things over again.  You must be willing and able to do the work and do it each and every day.    It is no easy task to be excellent and it is never without hard work that excellence is accomplished.  So what are you waiting for.  Excellence is waiting for you!
