I exceed my own expectations.
I show initiative. I see what needs to be done and I take care of it. I volunteer my services instead of waiting to be asked or hoping someone else will fix things.
I seize opportunities. I know what I want out of life. I feel confident and hopeful. I am aware and alert. I embrace change and take worthwhile risks.
I create high standards. I figure out my priorities. I strive to be exceptional at the activities that are important to me. I find fulfillment in being an involved parent or an inspiring teacher.
I keep setting new goals. When I complete one challenge I move on to the next.
I take care of my loved ones. I share moral encouragement and practical support. I bring chicken soup and magazines to my friends when they are sick. I surprise my spouse by picking up their dry cleaning or having their car washed.
I excel at my job. I resolve conflicts and innovate procedures. I refer qualified candidates for open positions.
I give back to my community. I bake brownies for school fundraisers and sort cans at my local food bank. I pick up litter while I walk my dog around the neighborhood.
I continue learning and growing. I gain knowledge and sharpen my skills. I take courses online and read a book each week. I travel and talk with others about their interests.
Today, I pursue excellence. I go above and beyond.
- How can I develop internal motivation?
- What is one area of my life where I feel that I need to put forth more effort?
- How do I feel about mediocrity?
