Even if you have heard of the term 'committed to excellence', do you fully understand what it means? The following quote is from Aristotle and defines what excellence is.
"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."
Immediately you can see that excellence is a habit, and any habit can be formed. The best way to create a new habit is by setting yourself new goals and creating a plan of attack. Let's see how you can do this.
First you want to define your reasons, or why, for wanting to commit to excellence. Does this pertain to your business, your health or for some other reason? If it helps write down your reasons and your why for wanting to achieve this.
If your goal is to be committed to excellence for your health there are some simple actionable steps that you can put into place. If your health is not where you would like it to be, then get into the habit of implementing small changes to improve your health.
You can easily improve your health by doing any of the following:
Another way to improve your health through excellence is by pre planning. Start to find time to enjoy more home cooked meals. Share this responsibility with others in your home.
There are healthy recipes on the internet, as well as in cookbooks that can be picked up at your local library. Possibly joining a support group, such as the Restart program in your area to learn more about how to make healthy eating a part of your everyday life.
Health encompasses many aspects of our lives. Our relationships, financial status, careers, social lives, emotions, and spirituality, all have an effect upon our health. Yet at the same time, all of these different attributes of our lives is affected by the state of our health.
If you want to excel in your life then you can start by attempting to put forth the best effort you can. If you do this consistently you will have that air of excellence surrounding you. This will rub off on other people and they will begin to view you in a different light.
