Excellence is not ego driven. Rather it is what takes place naturally once one is fully engaged, that is, is in the flow.
But.... does this state belong to only a few or are there steps one can take to get there?
Here are the first 3 steps our patients and clients can take to develop excellence:
- Think always in terms of advancement, improvement, and excellence, while always distinguishing it from procrastination and “perfectionism.”
- Turn your “I have to,” into “I am willing to,” and simply do it, and do it well, just for the sake of it
- Become genuinely interested in others and things, while always focusing on completing each task to satisfaction
