Unfortunately, it doesn’t share the full picture of this momentous occasion. It doesn’t tell you about the woman that was stricken with a chronic disability just a few months after taking the leap to 100% self-employment and whose business primarily closed for the better part of a year. It doesn’t depict the CEO that struggled to hold a glass, walk more than three steps at a time or use a small knife to cut fruit and vegetables. It doesn’t show you the days of a CEO whose body was racked with pain from head to toe or the endless treatments, drugs and painful injections for temporary and minor relief. All these scenarios, however, is where excellence is created, demonstrated and sharpened.
- Excellence is refusing to quit when all you really want to do is cut your losses and take the easy road.
- Excellence is risking it all, and sometimes losing it all, and starting over again.
- Excellence is in always taking the high road, operating in a spirit of good intentions, integrity and ethics, although it is not as profitable in the short term.
