I have written often about the role of luck in success. But, there is another sure way for success, albeit a much more difficult one, it is called excellence.
Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny.Aristotle
Excellence is never an accident: Achieving excellence, just doesn’t happen by chance. It’s not a random event or a stroke of luck. Instead, it is something that is purposefully cultivated, and usually takes a lot of effort and attempts.
It is always the result of high intention: Excellence is tied to a clear and elevated purpose or goal. Individuals aiming for excellence set high standards and have a strong intention to achieve outstanding results.
Sincere effort: Excellence requires genuine and dedicated effort. There are no quick shortcuts. It stresses the importance of hard work and commitment in the pursuit of the goal.
Intelligent execution: The process of achieving excellence involves smart and thoughtful execution of plans. Strategic thinking, resourcefulness, and effective decision-making contribute to the realization of excellence.
