Habits of Excellence

Black Belt Leaders and Champions Have Habits of Excellence!


Why not make excellence your habit?


Wouldn’t it be great to lead a life filled with excellence?

It's been said mediocrity is the enemy of excellence. 
Mediocrity or excellence? You choose. Either one can become habit for life.
If you accept mediocrity in your own performance and the people you influence, that’s the start of developing the habit of mediocrity and you’ll be destined to accept a mediocre life.
However, if you expect excellence from yourself, in your performance and results, you’ll be laying the foundation for an excellent life. Expect the best from yourself and those you influence, that is what you’ll get. As I have always said, in life you get what you expect and what you accept.
Whichever you choose, it will be the start of a habit.
Why? Because anything that you do repeatedly, over and over again, is bound to be become habit…that’s just the way it is.


Visualize a life of excellent health, wealth and happiness.
Excellent health would give you greater energy to train and do the things you want to do each day, and allow you to accomplish more each year.
Looking and feeling fit, toned and flexible, with energy to burn.
Excellence in wealth would free you from financial worry and concern. Allowing you more choices and opportunities to learn, grow, achieve and and have more fun in life.
Excellence in happiness would mean that you are happy with who you are, what you are, where you are going, and the relationships and people you are surrounded by every day.


You'd be smiling, singing, whistling, humming and/or laughing...more
than 95% of the people on the planet.
This is what happens when you develop habits of excellence.
You can start by displaying an attitude of gratitude which is a cousin of the attitude of excellence. Give polite greetings and do your best at everything you do. Practice having an excellent smile and share it with as many people as you can. Strive for excellent results in everything you do. Go the extra mile to create a better outcome in every area of your life and those of others.
