Good quality and pleasing to look at can be described as excellent. Only the excellent things will deem priceless and worth while to be called a classic.
Without pursuing excellence, life will remain bland and lukewarm at best. The quest for excellence fuels your fire and keeps you from just drifting downstream gathering debris.

“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other. So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth”. (Revelation 3: 16-16 NIV)

To achieve excellent, one must not be undecided in what his/she is pursuing. A firm and steady action will be the evident when it comes to achieving. You must be excellent in all that you do, from your physical to spiritual, and the natural must be in excellent shape. For example, as you prepared to go to work, be the best that can be. As you engage in conversation with your cow workers or any one else, let you conversation be morally in good standing. In fact, have an excellent attitude.

“And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment. That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ”. (Philippians 1:9-10 NIV)

Could you be excellent in all that you do ? of course you could. However, the pursuit of excellence will mean hard work and diligence which may take on various forms, research, study, time, sweat, planning, brainstorming for ideas, etc. It may well mean swimming against the stream and sometimes navigating the rocky and swift rapids of life. It will often be exhausting and bring you up against that which is really beyond you. Thus, in keeping with your own shortcomings and weaknesses, the pursuit of excellence in the execution of your daily routine or special projects is something that must be pursued by God’s strength. Such a mentality can be seen in the attitude and actions of the apostle Paul. As one totally committed to God’s purpose for his life, Paul gave his all to be all God wanted him to be in seeking to bring men to maturity in Christ, but he did so by God’s enablement rather than by his own strength. Excellent occur when two things merge together and become one, all your strength and God’s enablement.

Strive to be excellent and don’t give up. Here is how you become excellent. From the standpoint of that which affects the way you work, there is probably nothing more important than your attitude. Your choice of attitude impacts every decision you make on a day-to-day, moment-by-moment basis. Your attitude can either fire your hopes and the pursuit of the things that are important or it can extinguish your hopes and pursuits. The value of your attitude on what you pursue, your values, priorities, objectives, and how you pursue them will be very evident in the end result. In all that you are doing, strive to do your best and you will achieve success.

God bless you.
