Five Steps to Personal Excellence
If you master these five steps you will obtain personal excellence, and achieve your goals and dreams. This applies to all areas of your life. Self- discipline is the hardest part, but achieving your goals is very rewarding.
So develop the necessary mindset and follow these five steps:
1. Evaluating Your Strengths and Weaknesses
It is a good idea to be self-aware of your strength and weaknesses. You need to work hard and diligently on self-improvement. If a star basketball player can’t make free throws he will devote hours on becoming better. Now a former weakness becomes a strength.
Self-Discipline is a powerful tool in your arsenal. A great writer will wake up early and not miss a day of practicing his/her writing skills. This dedication will happen for months and years without taking a break. The key is to practice, work and refine your skills day after day. This alone will lead to self-mastery.
3. Visualize Success
Humans need to set goals and actually visualize themselves reaching them. This is a well- known psychological principal that all successful people follow. Pretend you actually have achieved your goals, like they already happened.
4. Time Management
Successful people are organized and manage their time well. They dedicate themselves to what is important and do not waste their time on trivial matters. How you plan and prioritize your time will definitely determine your effectiveness. Efficiency is a formula determined by the quality of work done within a fixed timeframe – so make sure you stick to it.
8. The Time Is Now
As a last step to achieving personal excellence, you must know that the time is NOW. In order to achieve personal excellence you must begin today and not wait for the perfect moment. There is never a perfect time, there is only now.
In the end, you should also know that all skills are learnable in life, and we are all put in this world with equal potential. We may not have the same circumstances, but we are all born to be great. Committing to your goals and being persistent will lead to personal excellence.
