But why diminish your soul being run-of-the-mill at something? Mediocrity: now there is ugliness for you. Mediocrity’s a hairball coughed up on the Persian carpet of Creation.

Tom Robbins, Half Asleep In Frog Pajamas

In Search of Excellence

There are many choices to make in life, and one of them is choosing excellence or mediocrity. This can apply in any number of ways to your life, but perhaps the most important area is within. Choosing excellence within opens your life to wonderful possibilities. It doesn’t require external accomplishments, but when you are committed to inner excellence you will find that it is reflected in your outer world, too. 

It’s In Your Hands

Mediocrity is self-inflicted. Genius is self-bestowed.

Walter Russell

It may be a new idea that you have the choice to create or experience excellence in life, but you do. Choose to find your genius. Dedicate time to cultivate it. Surround yourself with people who affirm you for it and support you in becoming more of it.

Think of yourself not as excellent, but as excellence. Become the attribute.

It’s All In Your Head

You are what you think … geez, that’s frightening.

Lily Tomlin

Our thoughts are one of the most powerful allies we have, or, they can be our greatest detractors. You may not feel as though you have control over your thoughts. The negative ones seem to have so much power. It takes a conscious choice to cultivate affirming, productive thoughts – a choice to experience your genius, to become excellence.

Your mind relies on nutrition to fuel it’s energy. The type of diet you give it will directly affect the kind of energy you get out of it. Choose to listen to audiobooks and podcasts of thought leaders who are dedicated to empowering others. Read books and other literature of authors who’ve learned in their own lives how to become excellence.

Feed your mind a diet of empowering thoughts and that is what you will receive in return.
