“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential, these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.” – Confucius

The five core elements of excellence are:

  1. Passion
  2. Competency
  3. Flexibility
  4. Communication
  5. Ownership

We must demonstrate all five of these core qualities consistently to claim the title of excellence.
 
Excellence is not how we are measured against others, but rather how we measure up against our potential. 

There is no silver or bronze runners-up medal for excellence. There is no learning curve.
 
Excellence is your best. Anything less is less.

“Excellence is a better teacher than mediocrity. The lessons of the ordinary are everywhere. Truly profound and original insights are to be found only in studying the exemplary.” – Warren Bennis
