There are 4 ways to improve your personal excellence - perception makes all the difference, dont settle for mediocrity, choose personal excellence and create your magnificent castle and, apply this same of thinking to everything you do.

Perception makes all the difference:

Here are three different men; all doing the same work, but one says he is hauling rocks, one says he is putting up walls, and one says he is building a castle. This story says a lot about the attitude that each of us bring to our lives, or could bring to our lives if we were willing to shift our perspective more toward personal excellence.

"The real motive and objective of my writing and coaching is to help people from all over the world to achieve and maintain a very high level of personal excellence. When I stay focused on the personal excellence aspect, I feel like I am building a magnificent castle while also meeting my lesser goals at the same time."

Don’t settle for mediocrity

Personal excellence is not about showing off or beating the competition. Personal excellence is about having high standards and a healthy sense of self-esteem. It’s a personal commitment to become the best you can possibly be. It liberates you from the crowded field of mediocrity allowing you to stand out, rise to the top, and shine!

No one ever achieved personal excellence by exhibiting mediocre behavior or by accepting it from the people they surround themselves with.That way, you cannot simply reach your fullest potential.

Choose personal excellence and create your magnificent castle

A commitment to personal excellence in every area of your life is a great equalizer. It doesn’t matter if you are a man or woman, black or white, young or old, handsome or homely, educated or not. If you focus on personal excellence, and never make an exception, you will rise to the top.

Personal excellence creates a sense of freedom, security, and peace of mind. It enables you to follow your dreams, to use your life the way you choose, and to live and work on your own terms. It also allows you to inspire and help others.

When my work empowers people to greater success, when it gives them direction, motivation, or peace of mind, I feel a great sense of satisfaction. It makes me feel like I’m building my castle.

Apply this same line of thinking to everything you do!

If your life feels like you’ve just been hauling rocks, here is a very special opportunity to make some real progress on your own magnificent castle. This thinking can be applied to all situations.
