Commit to Excellence

“Wherever Your Treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.” – Luke 12V34 (NLT)
Doing what you love motivates you, gives you abundant energy, tons of enthusiasm and a reason for being. It makes you look forward to tomorrow with a lot of anticipation leading to excellence that attracts treasures in your life. This is what this verse refers to. What meaning have you been giving to it all along?
The meaning we associate to things controls our entire lives. This simply means that the only way to control our lives is to control the meaning we give or associate to things because we surely cannot control things or what is happening to us. Let’s say a person gets fired or retrenched from a job, they may respond by saying – “I am not good enough,” or “God has given me the opportunity to do what I was born to do.” One may end up abusing drugs just to numb the feelings of losing a job and the other may end up being fired-up and later become a multi-millionaire. When you are FIRED FROM SOMETHING, SEE IT AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE FIRED-UP FOR SOMETHING BIGGER AND BETTER. So, you are to a large extent where you are because of the meaning you have associated to things that happened to you.
Successful people understand that excellence is a choice. It is something you dedicate your life to. This can only be attained by doing what you love. Doing what you love breaks down boundaries in your life.
Sadly, we spend most of our precious time looking for better jobs instead of dedicating our lives in search for what we love doing. What would you like to do twenty four hours a day and seven days a week that will bring a smile to your face? This is the question that you may want to focus on going forward and in time you will be rewarded. Once you find this thing that you would like to dedicate your life doing, you would have found where you heart is. The next step will be to develop skills in this area and excellence will be your life time friend and attract treasures in your life.
What is it that when you do it you forget that it’s Friday afternoon, that you are hungry, makes you lose sense of time and place, you become deaf to people who laugh at you and tell you it can’t be done? This should give you a clue, start paying attention. Don’t let the noise of others around you drown your inner-voice. You are God’s highest form of creation, your gifts and talents were given to you to make this world a better place than you found it, flatly refuse to take them to your grave with you!
