EXCELLENCE


Reach for and Realize the Excellent Life

by Guy Finley

Key Lesson: Excellence, wherever… and within whomever you may find it, is always a result of effort… never by accident.

Refuse to Agree to Mediocrity

The following key lessons are taken from 365 Days to Let Go. Use their insights to help reach for and realize the excellent life.

Mediocrity is a form of madness, a dream embraced by the masses because it makes just getting by an acceptable — sometimes applauded — social art form. What is excellent requires extra effort. To agree to sleep our way through life is to lose everything, because it rules out the possibility of our soul’s awakening.

~*~

When it comes to true success in this life — regardless of whatever world it is in which we strive for excellence — there is no greater ability than to be able to do what we don’t want to do, when we don’t want to do it, and, in all cases, to do it well.

~*~

Whenever we will do the very best we can do, give the very most that we have to give, even though we may be far from perfect in that moment nevertheless… that moment is acting upon us to bring us into its native perfection. And it is only through learning to endure our own imperfections that we realize Perfection itself is our guide and master.

~*~

The mastery of anything, including ourselves, begins with the faith that we are not here on earth to be perfected according to an image we hold of ourselves, but rather to allow Perfection to work its way upon us… so that only the awareness of something greater than ourselves can draw us into a greatness beyond ourselves, if we will it so.

~*~

What makes someone a master is not that he or she possesses some unattainable skill, but that these individuals have first realized the existence of, and then made contact with, a world above them that wants to pour its more perfected understanding into their own.
