To separate yourself from the crowd, you must do the opposite of average.

You can accelerate your journey from average to excellent by using these tips, strategies, and motivation to get a little better each day.

Be quietly confident in your abilities and accomplishments.

Margret Thatcher once said, “Power is like being a lady… if you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”

Success is the same way. Truly successful people don’t tell you about their successes.

Live in the present. There never was a ‘good old days’.

The good times we remember are simply a creation of our mind and how we want to remember our past.

You can’t change the past and it cannot change you. Be present in the here and now.

Turn your setback today into opportunities for tomorrow.

Everyone experiences failure and setbacks.

Most people accept them, feel sorry for themselves for awhile, then resume life as before.

Exceptional people convert them into future success.

Embrace your fate and live it to the best of your ability.

We all have a destiny. Sometimes that destiny is glory. Sometimes it is suffering.

Most of the time it is both.

Avoid people who complain.

People who constantly complain about everything are the same people who end up nowhere. You should avoid them at all costs.

Mindsets are contagious. If you hang around complainers, they will hinder your chances for success and make you miserable in the process.

Quote of the Week:

“If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.” – Henry Ford

Be excellent this week. Do the opposite of average!
