I promote excellence. When you constantly strive for that quality, the results show up everywhere and the possibilities are endless. Having that mindset will lead you to get better grades in school, earn promotions faster at work, develop your own business with greater efficiency and allow you to charge premium prices – things of that nature.
Living with excellence is about being ahead of the curve as well. For example, when a new iPhone breaks onto the market, it’s designed to be superior to the existing model, and people line up around the block to be the first to get their hands on it, no matter what it costs. Likewise, when people become accustomed to seeing excellence from you, they will gravitate to what you do and what you say because they know you are all about excellence.
Now, building up to excellence takes patience and dedication, and I will help you learn that. Most of us cannot learn a new skill, such as martial arts, the proper way when we’re first starting out. So however we learn that skill at the outset becomes a kind of bad habit if we’re not executing it perfectly. We might know what to do or we might not, but either way we are performing at a level that is below what we prefer.
This is where helping others can help strengthen your foundation. When you are assisting, you have a chance to review, re-evaluate and re-examine your own performance. You are helping yourself to re-learn the basics so you can get closer to excellence. Helping others succeed also is related to leadership. When you do this, people will be grateful that you lent them your time, effort and knowledge. Think of a time when you struggled to learn something, whether it was in school, in sports, at work, wherever. Now think of how great it was when someone took the time to help you and how you improved as a result.
By the same token, putting your effort into helping others will inspire them to return their appreciation and gratitude in a number of ways. If you’re thinking about yourself all the time, how you have to do everything yourself, and how it’s all about me, me, me, then chances are any success you create will always be a one-person operation. But if you look around, any venture, project or business that succeeds on a grand scale cannot operate this way. Look at McDonald’s, for example. A manager cannot take all the orders, clean the floors, take the garbage out, do the accounting, cook the food, etc. It has to be a system of people working together.
On the other hand, when you help others, they appreciate it, and they feel obligated to show their appreciation by helping you. This attitude multiplies and benefits everyone. So you can see, helping others will allow you to grow and achieve your goals much easier and more quickly. And the more you make a habit of this, the more people you will have who are willing to support you, and that’s how you create tremendous success.
I encourage you from now on to look at assisting; and that way you can see how powerful its benefits really are.
