Weekly Motivation Messagestep to success

Do you strive to be exceptional or ordinary? Make every minute of every day count by doing one thing better than you did before – live “The Slight Edge” (by Jeff Olson – quick, powerful read) – and you will be successful. To quote Confucius:

“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential…these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”

Exceptional

Of all the things that can help turn an ordinary life into an extraordinary one, perhaps the chief attribute is the drive to become exceptional.It starts with a decision — a decision consciously made that being “good enough” just isn’t good enough. It means that you try to become better, with each waking hour of each successive day. You try to start each day a little better than you started the day before. It brings with it a commitment to continue learning each day, to continue striving in the face of opposition and heartache, and to continue believing in the truth that we become what we think about, and we perfect what we practice.To be exceptional means rising above the common and the ordinary, choosing to believe in yourself and your mission in life. It includes having measurable goals that are worked for, achieved, and then redefined upward. It means reaching for the best in yourself, not settling for the worst you have within you.When you’re exceptional, others will notice something special in you, but even without their notice, being exceptional is a reward in itself — because you know that you are being all you can be, getting better each and every day.

When you live this exceptional life, your world opens up and your limits are few and far between. When you choose to live an ordinary life, your world is limiting, and your options are few. The choice is up to each of us — be everything that we can become, or allow ourselves to be less than we’re capable of becoming.
