The pursuit of excellence is the foundation for all success. It is encompassing and it transcends all fields, all careers, all vocations, all callings and anything that starts with the word professional.
It is the consistent and relentless pursuit of the idea of being the best that drives improvement in everything that we do.
Average is the norm of today. People have become professional “settlers” and the overcast of society is dark & gloomy.
In order to get past the barrier of mediocre, you must be willing to accept the idea of excellence and the never-ending pursuit that accompanies it.
“I am here to pick a fight with 2nd place”
Winners get to write history. Losers are condemned to it.
Winners get to write the rules. Losers must abide by them.
Our society, once driven by a constant pursuit of excellence has fallen prey to the catch all of mediocrity.
Average has become the norm. Fat has become the norm. Participation trophies have become the norm. Social justice has become the norm. Weakness has become the norm.
