What is Excellence?

Excellence is performing at one’s highest level, whether it is in academics, raising one’s self esteem, improving ones physical appearance or having sustained relationship. It is about doing things the way majority of the people will not do.

A dictionary definition of excellence is the quality of being outstanding or extremely good or superior at something. In other words one pursuing excellence in any area of life must be prepared to perform at a level above what the average person has done in chosen area.

In Aristotle view excellence isn’t just an act but a habit. According to this scholar ‘We are what we repeatedly do – Aristotle. Therefore excellence is based on simple set of actions we partake in repeatedly that helps us build very specific habits that lead us towards accomplishing life goals that the vast majority of people never reach. One can excellence is a culmination of habits directed at a very specific goal for a definitive purpose.

This follows that there set of actions, habits, beliefs, decisions and empowering thoughts that combine in enabling one get the results one desires to create in one’s life in pursuit of one’s highest goals and life’s purpose. Pursuing excellence therefore refers to inculcating them into our lives will set us on a path of excelling far beyond what the vast majority of people are capable of. And that I guess is what excellence is all about. This separates you from the crowd and helps you to live a life of excellence.



How do we Pursue excellence

As followers of Christ, God calls us to be imitator of Christ, and glorify him in everything I do.

Ephesians 5:1-2 says, “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children;” and 1 Corinthians 10:31 agrees and says, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

God doesn’t do things halfway and doing it ourselves doesn’t shed a very good light on Christ. We are expected to pursue excellence in everything we do. No matter if it’s baby sitting or getting a university degree.—we need to pursue excellence.

Pursuing excellence begins with having a desired vision or dream. Once an ideal is envisioned you do whatever that needs to be done to accomplish it. Strategies below can be adopted

Set goals that will bring you satisfaction when accomplished.

You have the power to succeed in creating a life that works for you and to set goals to improve your life. Pursue your own path, dreams and passion. Make the difference by not being a copycat. Rather work harder to leave your own legacy you will be remembered with.

3. Use your knowledge of yourself and your goal

Personal excellence requires that you evaluate your strengths and weaknesses. Your strengths are those things that are easy for you to do and what you do best.

Think about exactly what has gone wrong and gain from it. Reflect on what you did well as well as how you can improve in the future. Concentrate on working on those particular points. Consider different options to overcome these obstacles and choose one or more that make the most sense.

8. Accept people for who they are and look for the good in them

Although it’s important to speak up when your feelings have been hurt or you see a problem, it’s also essential to respect others. In order to live a life of excellence with more happiness, it’s better to accept people for who they are rather than try to change them. This includes people who are involved with you in meeting your goals.

The first step is to stop seeing the world in black and white, with you always being in the right and others as being in the wrong. It’s important to understand other people’s point of view.

Have flexibility and balance in your life

Don’t be a slave to your goal and feel that you have to accomplish it a certain way. Flexibility is having the willingness to adapt and try something different if something isn’t working as you thought it would. Be very aware of your environment and the people in it. If things aren’t going as you originally planned, make changes until you find what works.

Along with flexibility, it’s vital to have balance in your life to allow time for the other important people and activities in your life. Although you may need to devote extra time to your project, it’s best not to totally immerse yourself in one area of your life to the exclusion of all others.

10. Stick with your goal until it’s completed

To truly reach excellence, it’s crucial to persist with any project until it’s completed. Giving up halfway through will diminish your self-esteem quickly.

If you’re unsure which direction to go, spell out exactly what steps need to be taken to finish your goal and brainstorm all the possibilities you can think of to move you through these steps.

If you lose your motivation before the project is finished, make yourself accountable to another person. Take the steps you’ve created and write down what is required. Tell the other person exactly what you’re to perform and the date and time by which you should complete it. Be open to being responsible to this person for accounting for each step you are to take.
