“Finally, beloved, whatever is true,
Whatever is honorable,
Whatever is just,
Whatever is pure,
Whatever is pleasing,
Whatever is commendable if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
– St. Paul (Philippians 4:8)
What is excellence?
Becoming exceptionally good so as to supersede ordinary standards.
One of my mentors told me to live excellent so there is no doubt in your mind and in the mind of those you serve that you are the best. Not because you know everything but because you know you don’t know everything and you will continue to search unceasingly.
This echos what my father always told me, “Whatever you do make sure you do, do your best.”
Coming from London
This weekend Cruz Country Fitness is hosting the firstIntegrated Performance Coaching Certification to the United States. To conduct this certification we have one of the worlds top coaches from London to coach us and help us serve others with unique skills.
Why is he coming from London?
Because of excellence. When you are excellent people search you out, other feel it, know it, and want it. Dax is the best. I want to learn from and be around the best.
Who is in your Fab 5?
There is a statistic that says, you make the average income of the top 5 people you spend most of your time with. In my experience this not only applies to your income but also to your habits and actions. You become like those who you associate with.
Because of this seminar we are hosting, we have personal trainers, physical therapists, and medical students flying in from around the US to attend. These are not your average professionals. These are professionals that hungry to learn and to serve others. They want excellence.
I am excited about this opportunity because it will help me become a better person, husband, father, trainer, coach.
What about you?
I am sharing this because I want the best for you. I want you to shine and be excellent. I want you to grow daily and become the best version of yourself. I want you to love yourself enough to be your best. I want you to share with the world your talents and gifts.
Who cares what I think?
I can want all these things for you but it means nothing if you don’t want it. Find what drives you and go for it. Be excellent.
An example that may hit home.
I came across this concept in my studies and I wanted to share it with you.
Have you ever considered that the richest place on earth is a cemetery?
“In a cemetery, you will find that there are books that were never written. There are songs that were never sung. There are ideas that were never acted upon–dreams that were long forgotten. If you were to die today, then what ideas and what aspirations would die with you?”
Grow daily and be excellent. Let the world enjoy your talents and contribution. The best place to start is you. Be the truest and best version of you.
