New months come and go, have you done anything lately worth remembering in the previous one?
Whether you accomplished few of your goals or not, don’t feel bad but constantly seek ways to do things better in all areas of your life.
The Japanese have a word for the concept of continuous improvement,kaizen Progress and
ultimate success come to those who train and keep training. If you choose to
stop and become aware, you can become a better spouse, son, daughter, friend,
employer, employee, athlete and even a better citizen too.
Commitment comes from the inside out and is tested often. This reminds me of the movie The karate kids
where Jakie Chan advised Jaden Smith when he felt he wasn’t good enough saying, “you cant be the best, except you fight against the best.” Measure yourself against the best. Most others will choose to be average and being average means you won’t know your limits if you don’t keep trying.
Reject the idea of being good enough. Challenge yourself to be committed to excellence.
Take each of your goals and think of how you can improve 1% each month at least that’s what i decided to do and it sure is working out. Success is a journey. It is not a quick fix. The joy is in the doing. Think of success not as a peak to be climbed but a high plateau to be walked.
Always encourage people around you and in turn, you get encouraged likewise.
Set the bar high for yourself and them. It’s kind of like having an accountability partner. You will all be the better for it. Challenge yourself for unending improvement.
Norman Vincent Peale once said, Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.
Challenge yourself for an unending improvement.
