Thought for the Day ~ Strive for Excellence

Always do your best…… every aspect of your life.  Each of us has the potential and opportunity for success.  You see it takes just as much effort to lead an unproductive life as it does an effective one.  It’s just that when we settle for less than what we want it costs us personally. It weighs on our spirit and visits us silently each day.  Sure we can hold up one aspect of our lives and say look at this success…..but if you only excel at work and you don’t excel at home then you are not living your best life.  Too many people no longer hope for the best, rather they hope to avoid the worst.  So they commit to a holding pattern…rather than striving to improve  their reality. 

So don’t ever start your day in neutral.  Know the value that each day presents to us.  The opportunity to pick ourselves up and score in the game of life.  It’s ok to dream big….big dreams give us something to look forward to, something to work on.  It is equally important to take small steps every day  so that we realize our personal goals for work, play, and love.  Otherwise we spend too much of our time dreaming of what’s coming, never realizing that a little of it arrives every day.  There is a divine set up in life that causes us to attract the people that are required for us to take a deeper look at ourselves.  Because the interactions that we have with the people in our lives, evoke the responses that need to heal.  When we choose a different response  to life, we are healed.  Today make the commitment to excellence in every aspect of your life. Namaste.

Bianca Sparacino said “You ruin your life by tolerating it. At the end of the day you should be excited to be alive. When you settle for anything less than what you innately desire, you destroy the possibility that lives inside of you, and in that way you cheat both yourself and the world of your potential. The next Michelangelo could be sitting behind a Macbook right now writing an invoice for paperclips, because it pays the bills, or because it is comfortable, or because he can tolerate it. Do not let this happen to you. Do not ruin your life this way. Life and work, and life and love, are not irrespective of each other. They are intrinsically linked. We have to strive to do extraordinary work, we have to strive to find extraordinary love. Only then will we tap into an extraordinarily blissful life.”
