I pursue excellence in every aspect of my life. I try to do things correctly the first time and give my full effort. I avoid taking shortcuts whenever possible. Shortcuts usually make room for half-hearted efforts.
I avoid settling for less than my best. Doing just enough indeed allows me to sail through life. But doing less than I am capable of rarely gives me satisfaction.
I like being recognized as a stalwart within my organization. Others look to me with respect because I am committed to my job and the company. I feel good when others emulate my positive attributes.
My greatest strength is my thoroughness. I pay attention to even the smallest detail to ensure the results are what I expect. Being detail-oriented ensures accuracy.
Excellence is my mission, even in my relationships. I give the best of myself to my friends and family. As a result, I am surrounded by goodness, especially when they give their best in return.
I encourage my loved ones to see things through to the end. I know it is sometimes hard to continue when times get tough. But a total effort is worth more than any victory.
Today, I feel stellar because I strive for the best in all aspects of my life. My goal in life is to be a positive example for others. I am proud of my commitment to excellence.
