When you make excellence as a part of your life, you start leading a productive and successful life, have happy and fulfilling relationships and most importantly have inner satisfaction.
Achieving excellence is not limited to becoming perfect in the work you do, but it is much beyond that. Excellence is in the process and not outcome. It is a continuous effort to improve your performance consistently so that you can enhance every dimension of your life such as family, work, education, relationships, finance.
Self-belief is paramount to success that leads to excellence. When you have self-belief then there is nothing that can stop you from achieving what you would have aimed for. Every time you achieve something – no matter big or small – give a pat on your back. Appreciating your achievements creates positive impression in your mind that leads to increasing your confidence which inherently builds your self- belief.
A very important pillar of excellence is creating the right mindset. If the mind is not in the right place, nothing can be achieved and when the mind is strong and positively driven – you can achieve everything and anything.
Meditation is a powerful tool to gain mastery over yourself, to be motivated and most importantly create a mindset that offers strength and power. Meditation is being vouched as a very effective technique by many global leaders who use this for sharpening their saw.
I recommend investing at least ten minutes a day towards meditation to manifest excellence. In fact, meditation has been proven to work wonders by increasing the cognitive performance of any individual practicing it on a regular basis. That is why global leaders such as Ray Dalio, Oprah Winfrey, late Steve Jobs, Russell Brand, Ellen DeGeneres imbibe meditation as a part of their routine.
Fear is a major roadblock that can stop you from achieving excellence in life. This fear can be stemming from any dimension of your life but it’s important to work on your fears and find solutions rather than focus on the problem.
Do not be afraid of trying new ideas that may help you in achieving your aim. Be on the lookout of all those possibilities as those can be fundamental building blocks in achieving success.
When you are constantly working on excellence, chances are that you will come across many situations that are new to you – adaptability is the key to manage those situations. Believing that change is the only solution and making it your friend is the best solution for all those challenging situations that you may face.
For instance, changing your plans- while it is important to have a strong planning structure, it is also important to not become overly attached to your plans- adapt yourself to sometimes improvise your plans or even drop it if it does not seem to be working.
