On Excellence

Excellence is a choice

Give your very best in everything you do! Always!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a student, employee, a business owner or a professional. I believe we all want to excel in everything we do. Nobody refuses to excel right?

With so many competitors, why should the client choose you? With so many advertisements, why has the client chosen you to inquire about the products or services offered?

How do we actually become excellent in our line of work?


Don’t let the day pass without deliberately learning something. Be intentional! Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Solicit advice and always surround yourself with people you can learn from. Read and understand that even the best entrepreneurs in the world, the likes of Warren Buffet, would spend most of their time reading. Why? Because they know that in order to be successful they have to continuously learn.


Large companies never stop innovating, upgrading and investing. They know fully that this is necessary for their continuous growth. They keep on looking for ways to improve even to a point that they need to go out of their comfort zone. This is also true for you as an entrepreneur. Don’t be afraid to try and learn new things that will help you grow. If you’re the shy type, just keep on pushing your limits. You’ll certainly come to a point where you no longer feel shy and you can do things in full confidence. In time, you’ll discover that there are so many things that you can do that you never imagined you can. This is also the perfect opportunity to find out what your gifts are.


The only competition you have is yourself. Stop comparing yourself to others. Don’t stress about people who seem to have succeeded first. Learn to focus on your self-growth. Run your own race. Your growth as a person should be from glory to glory. You ought to be a different kind of person (a better one) compared to last year. Competing with yourself gives you a better picture of what you’re really capable of. You get to see both your strengths and weaknesses. Identifying both can lead to a commitment to improve on your weak spots and leverage on your strengths. You should be able to see your improvement as time goes by.

I have also learned from Colossians 3:23 that, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” When you work, give it your 101% effort. Remember that at the end of the day, God is your boss and He will certainly reward you for the work you have done.
