The Pursuit of Excellence
Proverb “How big would you dream if you knew you couldn’t fail?”
The formula for excellence is Vision+Action
Vision= Ask yourself the question quoted in the attached proverb. What is it that you want for yourself? The mind can’t tell the difference between what is imagined (future) and what is real (current). Examining your vision and picturing yourself living the vision allows you to access the deeper desires that lie dormant in your unconscious mind.
Action= Ask yourself, what specific actions can I target right now? People make the mistake of viewing taking action as a performance, inclining themselves to perfectionistic behaviour, long lists of tasks, all things that lead to becoming overwhelmed and procrastinating. The key to taking action is to view all of your actions as practice. Practice for what you might ask? You are on the path of excellence. There is no need to perform, only practice. There is no such thing as the perfect step. Every action practiced on the path of excellence is a performance in itself.
Human beings are perceptive creatures. What do people see when they look at you?
Are you on the path of excellence?
