Ralph Marston said, “Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.”
Is This True For You?
Do you have an attitude of excellence? You might be saying to yourself, “I am not even sure what that means.” An attitude of excellence is an attitude of assurance, of capability, and of “can-do” that never gives up, even when the obstacles are large and may seem insurmountable.
If you want a little inspiration, let me introduce you to Nick Vojicic. Nick was born with no arms, no legs and only a tiny flipper on one foot. Incredibly, Nick is one of the most positive people you will ever meet! He made a decision not to allow his physical limitations to become a reason that he could not accomplish goals. He travels around the world, sharing his story, and blogs regularly on his experiences. In one blog post, he writes: “Dream big, my friend, and never give up. We all make mistakes, but none of us are mistakes. Take one day at a time. Embrace the positive attitudes, perspectives, principles, and truths I share, and you too will overcome.”
I am willing to bet that you are not facing limitations such as Nick Vojicic has, so how can you possibly have a less positive attitude than he does! Nick’s attitude has enabled him to live more than many people who have no physical handicaps at all. No matter what happens, Nick has learned that staying positive is the key to achieving your goals.
A positive attitude of excellence will help you achieve more than any amount of training or even any infusion of cash in your business life, as well. Stop making excuses and start living positively. Surround yourself with positive people; nothing drags your attitude down faster than a “naysayer.” Support others with achieving their goals and you will find yourself better able to achieve yours! Remember that attitude is the most important thing that will probably determine your success or failure in any endeavor, so do an attitude check today. How does your attitude measure up; are you positive enough to climb any mountain and overcome any obstacle?
