"Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass."
Paul J. Meyer
There is a special something within each of us that excites us, inspires us, that drives us to become what we're destined to be. Something so remarkable that words can scarcely describe, something so incredibly powerful that no obstacle on earth could ever stop. And what's this special something? It's our extraordinary need to succeed; that burning desire to be our best, to do our best and to fulfill our divine destinies on earth.
Deep down in our hearts and souls burns a white heat passion to prosper, to flourish and to achieve greatly. A fire so bright, so hot, so much a part of who we are that it cannot be put out. Yet far too many of us rarely give it a second thought.
"The rewards for those who persevere far exceed the pain that must precede the victory."
Ted W. Engstrom
Whenever we lose that super special something, we lose more than we can possibly imagine. This intrinsic need to succeed motivates us, heartens us and makes our lives truly worth living. Without it we forget how to live, love and lead. In short, we stop being the one person we need to be - the winner we were born to become.
Our futures unfold one moment at a time, one day at a time. What we do with each moment at hand - and how we do it - determines what we become and what we ultimately accomplish. We should never forget, not even for a fleeting second, that were graciously given the glorious gift of life; an opportunity to thrive, to live life the way is was meant to be lived. A gift far too valuable to be carelessly frittered away.
"The most splendid achievement of all is the constant striving to surpass yourself and to be worthy of your own approval."
We need to embrace each and every day, consistently giving everything we do our very best effort, our very best shot. That means not just trying to succeed, but taking it a step further and striving to excel in everything we do. Let's face it, most people just go through the motions, doing as little as possible to get through the day. Not surprisingly, these folks rarely catch a glimpse of what success is all about. They struggle mightily daily, just barely scraping by.
We can do better, a lot better. But in order to make our lives everything they deserve to be and more, excellence in everyday action must be our uncompromising goal. That means doing more than just trying to succeed; but striving to exceed daily. We need to exceed the expectations of others by giving more than most are willing to give, doing more than most people are willing to do. And we need to exceed those expectations we hold for ourselves, progressively getting better with each passing day.
"Believe you can go beyond. Those who harbor the second-best attitude are invariably second-best doers."
David Joseph Schwartz
Constantly striving to outshine our previous day's effort may not be an easy row to how, but then again, so what? Getting where you've always dreamed of going requires much more than a casual effort. It requires a commitment to excellence, an indefatigable desire to excel in everything you say, think and do. That means making exceptional excellence a way of life.
You'll discover that exceeding the expectations of others is nice and pays handsome dividends as well. But there is something even better out there, something that goes well beyond your wildest imagination. If you are ready to experience a 'high' that's higher than high, if you're prepared to take your life to a whole new level of excellence, you need to exceed yourself.
By pushing yourself to exceed what you think you are capable of having, doing and being - you can have, do and become more than you ever dreamed possible. Yes, even your most outlandish, over the top and out of this world dreams can come true. It's up to you.
"It is necessary to try to surpass one's self always; this occupation ought to last as long as life."
Queen Christina of Sweden
By continually surpassing your previous best, doing things a little better, faster and smarter daily, you steadily move the bar of achievement higher and higher still. By aspiring to something higher daily, you begin living a life that far exceeds anything and everything you ever dared to believe you could achieve.
Regardless of how you define success, you have a responsibility to fulfill your destiny, to make the most of the talents and abilities you possess. That means going after those things you put on earth to accomplish with everything you've got. If you could live everyday day like it was your last day on earth, what would you dare to do? With nothing to lose and everything to gain, you could set the world on fire, couldn't you? So why not choose to live each day in this fashion, blazing a trail of excellence daily?
From now on, why not set your sights on exceeding yourself daily, showing the world the best you can offer, the best you can give? There's a whole other world of electrifying, exhilarating, spine tingling excitement there for the taking, so why not reach out and take it? If you're ready, willing and able to take a chance on yourself, striving to exceed your previous effort each and every day, a lifetime of unparalleled excellence awaits.
