The truth is, everybody’s answer is different. What we want in life is not the same as the person next to us. As much as we think about more money, a better job, a bigger house, a nicer car… it’s really more than that.
Everything we think we want initially actually leads to more.
The first chapter in “Book of Excellence” is about why we want to excel. What will becoming more do for us?
More opportunities become available to us. When you think about who stands out in this world, you start to see the opportunities they have compared to those who do not stand out. This might mean an opportunity for a promotion within a company, an opportunity to get hired by a better company, an opportunity to go to a better school, or even a chance to play on a better team. There are simply more opportunities for those who excel.
Those who excel have more freedom than those who do not. This could come in the form choice; like a person being able to choose from 100 different companies rather than just a few. This could come in the form of position; like the person who chooses their role within a company. It could also mean freedom to simply do things the way you want to do them; they’re working so why stop? Those excel have more freedoms available.
Gravitation. Not in the way you think where an apple falls from a tree. In the form of people wanting to be around you. People wanting to know you, listen to you, learn from you. You become a greater influence on the world because more people want to be in your world. This might also lead you to becoming a role model.
Those who excel leave behind a legacy. One day we will all move on. Whether that be from a job, a classroom, a team, or whatever else you can think of. The work we do, the excellence we achieve, and the people we’ve impacted will determine whether we leave behind a legacy or we are forgotten.
Now think about why you would want to excel. What would you gain from it? What would the world gain from it?
