Finish What You Started

Joyce Meyer once defined excellence as “Excellence is not extravagance. Excellence is simply being the best you can be with what you have”.

How often do we compare ourselves to others? How often do we define excellence as ‘best’ or by how much talent someone was born with? If you are honest, I bet it’s way too often. If excellence is being our best, then that means finishing what we started, no matter how we compare with others.

Just think how much greater we would be if we finished everything we started. Yet, we are often tempted to compare ourselves to others to the point it can make us quit – or worse, it can make us not even start.

Today let’s redefine what a winner is. It’s not 1st place. It’s YOUR 100%. YOUR best. It’s YOU finishing what you started. THAT’s what makes a champion. THAT’s what makes a winner. Vow today to finish what you have started. And no matter how hard it gets or how long it takes, never, NEVER give up!

    This is an interesting take on excellence. Not sure I’m convinced, but, you could be right! I was about to quit on something I felt I couldnt be the best at, in comparison to others. Maybe I really should just do it, and be the best I can be. This really goes against every fibre in my body… (I don’t like the idea of being just another “also ran”).

      I totally understand. It’s called PRIDE – and I have that disease too. ha!! We are SO much better off if we live without it. Pride is a deadly deadly characteristic that kills lots of great opportunities. ;)
