Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: The Power of Excellence
In America, we live in a pyramidal society where there are lots of people at the bottom of the pyramid and a few people at the top. Many of the people at the bottom are barely making ends meet from day to day, while many of the people at the top are those who are doing well- even in these challenging times. Many of the people at the top started at the bottom, but rose to the top. Why? Because they refused to settle for mediocrity. They pursued excellence and began to rise. It’s the ‘Crème de la Crème’ principle: the cream will always rise to the top.
I recently saw Oprah Winfrey on one of the nightly interview shows. She was asked how she had risen to her status as one of the wealthiest people in the world, despite coming from a broken home and being a troubled teen. She answered by saying that she made a commitment to pursue excellence in everything she did. Initially, she did not look like a television or movie star. She was not svelte or thin or overly glamorous, but she pursued excellence with a passion. And excellence is like truth. You can push it down, cover it up, or ignore it, but no matter what you do to it, it always rises to the top. We must always pursue excellence in all that we do. Strive for excellence and your dreams will start to rise to the top!
