Resolve to make each day the very best and don't let anyone get in your way. If they do, step on them.
Best Quotes about Excellence
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be first, be different, be just.
I always remember an epitaph which is in the cemetery at Tombstone, Arizona. It says: Here lies Jack Williams. He done his damnedest. I think that is the greatest epitaph a man can have.
Truman, Harry S
Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
Gardner, John W.
It's enough for you to do it once for a few men to remember you. But if you do it year after year, then many people remember you and they tell it to their children, and their children and grandchildren remember and, if it concerns books, they can read them. And if it's good enough, it will last as long as there are human beings.
Excellence is best described as doing the right things right -- selecting the most important things to be done and then accomplishing them 100% correctly.
It is those who have this imperative demand for the best in their natures, and who will accept nothing short of it, that holds the banners of progress, that set the standards, the ideals, for others.
Marden, Orison Swett
You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
To enjoy the things we ought and to hate the things we ought has the greatest bearing on excellence of character.
From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race.
Bruyere, Jean De La
I start where the last man left off.
Edison, Thomas A.
Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.
The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both.
Michener, James A.
Our goal, simply stated, is to be the best.
Robinson, James H.
I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it. I know.
Sanders, Col. Harland
There is only one thing for us to do, and that is to do our level best right where we are every day of our lives; To use our best judgment, and then to trust the rest to that Power which holds the forces of the universe in his hands.
Marden, Orison Swett
The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self improvement, about being better than you were the day before.
The idea for which this nation stands will not survive if the highest goal free man can set themselves is an amiable mediocrity. Excellence implies striving for the highest standards in every phase of life.
Gardner, John W.
Anybody who accepts mediocrity -- in school, on the job, in life -- is a person who compromises, and when the leader compromises, the whole organization compromises.
The renown which riches or beauty confer is fleeting and frail; mental excellence is a splendid and lasting possession.
The most splendid achievement of all is the constant striving to surpass yourself and to be worthy of your own approval.
You have to create a track record of breaking your own mold, or at least other people's idea of that mold.
Do more than you're supposed to do and you can have or be or do anything you want.
There never will exist anything permanently noble and excellent in the character which is a stranger to resolute self-denial.
Scott, Sir Walter
A racehorse that consistently runs just a second faster than another horse is worth millions of dollars more. Be willing to give that extra effort that separates the winner from the one in second place.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
To enjoy enduring success we should travel a little in advance of the world.
There is an infinite difference between a little wrong and just right, between fairly good and the best, between mediocrity and superiority...
Marden, Orison Swett
There is no such thing as natural touch. Touch is something you create by hitting millions of golf balls.
There seems to be one quality of mind which seems to be of special and extreme advantage in leading him to make discoveries. It was the power of never letting exceptions go unnoticed.
It has always been my belief that a man should do his best, regardless of how much he receives for his services, or the number of people he may be serving or the class of people served.
If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.
It isn't what you do, but how you do it.
It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required.
Sir Winston Churchill
One of the great undiscovered joys of life comes from doing everything one attempts to the best of one's ability. There is a special sense of satisfaction, a pride in surveying such a work, a work which is rounded, full, exact, complete in its parts, which the superficial person who leaves his or her work in a slovenly, slipshod, half-finished condition, can never know. It is this conscientious completeness which turns any work into art. The smallest task, well done, becomes a miracle of achievement.
I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.
You always have to give 100 percent, because if you don't, someone, someplace, will give 100 percent and will beat you when you meet.
The real contest is always between what you've done and what you're capable of doing. You measure yourself against yourself and nobody else.
Badness you can get easily, in quantity; the road is smooth, and it lies close by, But in front of excellence the immortal gods have put sweat, and long and steer is the way to it.
Put the uncommon effort into the common task... make it large by doing it in a great way.
Marden, Orison Swett
Do a little bit more than average and from that point on our progress multiplies itself out of all proportion to the effort put in.
Meyer, Paul J.
It is only in your mind that you have to excel, at anything or everything. Of course, it would be very nice to excel at most things. Indeed, we recommend that you try and do your best. But realistically, you are entitled to do the bare minimum to get by. All your accomplishments are just a bonus, something to enjoy, not requirements. You don't have to do anything to prove that you are worthy of existing.
Albert Ellis, Michael Abrams, Lidia Dengelegi
There is no finish line.
The noblest search is the search for excellence.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
The sad truth is that excellence makes people nervous.
There is no top. There are always further heights to reach.
You can start right where you stand and apply the habit of going the extra mile by rendering more service and better service than you are now being paid for.
Let each day be your masterpiece.
People forget how fast you did a job, but they remember how well you did it.
Newton, Howard W.
Then to Silvia let us sing that Silvia is excelling. She excels each mortal thing upon the dull earth dwelling.
Winners have the ability to step back from the canvas of their lives like an artist gaining perspective. They make their lives a work of art -- an individual masterpiece.
