Live with excellence

You’d feel cheated if you invested a lot of money to purchase a product and ended up with a piece of worthless junk. When you spend your money, you naturally want to get something of value in return.

Do you have the same high standards when it comes to the way you spend your time? After all, your time is even more valuable than money. When you spend your precious time, it’s important to get something of high value in return.

So invest your time in creating a life of excellence. Whatever you do, do it with passion. Make it count for something. Give the best you have to the effort. By doing something halfway you cheat yourself out of an irreplaceable opportunity to create excellence. Why would you want to do that?

If you can’t get passionate about what you’re doing, then find something else to do. There is a wealth of excellence within you that is itching to get out. Let it happen. Be fully alive. Pursue excellence, cultivate excellence in your own life, appreciate excellence in the world around you, and live each moment with excellence.

Right now, you’re alive and living in a world filled with possibilities. Live with excellence, and make the most of every bit.
