Being good every once in a while is a relatively easy task. It's being good every day of the week that presents us our greatest challenge.
How many times have you enjoyed one of those really special days and then said to yourself, "I wish every day could be just like today?" Anyone, and I do mean anyone, can have a good day every now and again. But is having a good day every once in a while or every now and again really good enough for a winner? No way. A winner wants to win, day in and day out.
If you bounce back and forth, having one great day immediately followed by a really lousy day, you will find yourself on a emotional roller coaster that is going nowhere fast. Champions are renown for stacking a lot of great days in a row because they have learned how to be at their best each and every day. This kind of exceptional, life changing progress can be realized by anyone but there is a catch it does require an unrelenting commitment to excellence daily.
An individual absolutely committed to excellence doesnt know how to take the easy way out or how to slack up when the going gets tough. A champion becomes a champion by consistently doing whatever the situation demands. Champions are those special people, the winners in life, who get up and get the job done when everyone around them tells them they "can't" do it. The one intangible that separates these champions from everyone else is their unequivocal insistence of demanding excellence in their every day action.
You too must demand the very best you have to offer. When you do, you will be in for a pleasant surprise. Youll find that your best is plenty good enough. When you consistently put your best foot forward, you will begin enjoying one great day after another.
Then all you need to do is keep up the great work weekly, not weakly.
