I’ve always been very passionate about living a life of excellence. Many people who know me well may describe me as a perfectionist and know that I always look for the best. In business, setting your goals, overcoming challenges, getting results, celebrating victories are all elements of excellence. While I’ve made some accomplishments and I always say I still so much more to go I always feel there is room for personal growth and excelling at everything you put your mind to.
Our potential is limitless, we must explore all possibilities and always deliver the best! So how do you find excellence in life?
Discover your purpose. – Our physical life started when we were born. Our real life starts when we discover our purpose. What is your purpose? What is your mission statement for your life? Mine is, “To touch others’ lives, help them achieve their highest potential and live their best lives.” This one statement gives me clarity and focus on what to do, from my daily plans to my long-term goals. ” To become the greatest entertainer in the world.” My purpose is to “help other’s succeed.”
Set your goals. – If you can have whatever you want, what would you like? What are your biggest goals and dreams? Set them. The life I’m living today is a result of goals I set in the past. If you don’t set any goals, it’s safe to say that you’ll be running in place for the foreseeable future. Is that what you want? Create a dream board. This is something I’ve always created since my early days in the business. I write my purpose, goals, images, quotes anything and everything that I find important in my life will go on this dream board.
Have the right mindset. – The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your thoughts. If you think life sucks, life will indeed suck. On the other hand, if you are set to live your best life, the paths will open up in front of you. Maybe it’s all the ‘good triumphing over evil’ RPGs I’ve played since young, but I firmly believe that where there’s a will, there’s a way. No one can stop you if you have the right mindset.
Get mentors. – You have dreams and big visions, and there are people who have likely been there and done that. Get them to mentor you. It’ll definitely cut down the learning curve and ease your journey. With a mentor, you can unlock your potential and achieve so much more. If there is one thing I can’t stress enough is find a mentor! I’ve had many mentors in my life that have mentored me through my entire career.
Surround yourself with positive people. – Do you know you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with? Your attitudes, beliefs, accomplishments and success are a function of the people you spend time around. Think about the people who inspire you and spend more time with them. You’ll be amazed at the effects they’ll have on you.
Release your limits. – They say the sky is the limit. I disagree. We are our own limits. It’s then about releasing our limits so we can live our best lives. What are you limiting yourself from doing? Stop holding yourself back. Go out and get what you want.
Believe in yourself. – The majority of the times I’ve been able to achieve something is because I started out believing I could do it, rather than acquiring that belief after I achieved it. If I didn’t think I could do it, I probably would never have succeeded. My past experiences have taught me that all you need to have in order to succeed is to have a sense of self-belief – a sense that you can control your own future. That’s all.
