Strive For Excellence

Are you a perfectionist? Do you set excessively high performance standards for yourself?

Striving to be the best you can be is a noble goal. Yet, when the pursuit of perfection is accompanied by overly critical self-evaluation, the road can become a slippery slope ending in self-doubt, and even depression.

Think, instead, about shifting your perspective from perfectionism to one of excellence. A determined commitment to excellence will enable you to attain the success you desire. “Excellence,“ wrote Colin Powell, “is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude,” and one, I would add, that is founded in discipline, dedication, and drive. So, don’t get stuck in the muck and mire of perfectionism. Raise yourself up. In all your actions, in all your endeavors, strive for excellence

Have a joyful day everyone. And remember to live a flourishing life.
