Here is a good post from Life Buzz on specifics to begin to cultivating mental excellence. While it’s true that the biggest challenge is getting started, the most relevant challenge is incorporating actions into habits that lead to sustained excellence.
Even good habits need to be revisited on a regular basis…People get distracted, they stop exercising or eating properly or spending time with their children or reading to expand their knowledge. Perhaps their patience gets challenged and though they do not notice it, they become incrementally less patient. Over time, these incremental little habit shifts can have a dramatic impact.
This is why “sustaining excellence” cannot be viewed as a road to a destination, a ladder you climb, a building block in a pyramid or some other linear model where you simply ‘arrive’ at the final goal. It’s part of a cycle that must be constantly moving or the entire system begins to unravel.
Will you start? More importantly, will you continue??
