It is important to do our best in that we put our minds and hands to as well as how we choose to live our life. Choosing to do our best, is our way of living a life of excellence (not perfection). Three ways that you can you live a life of excellence are:
Keep your word as best as you and do what you tell people you are going to do.
Finish what you start, even if it takes you longer than anticipated.
Always be honest and truthful with yourself and others.
It is easy to find fault with others but we all have flaws. Yet, we tend to want to change people and become blind to what needs to be changed within us. Actually only God can change people and He does it from the inside out which means we must be patient with each other. Instead of attempting to change or criticize others, ask God to change you, and to enable you to see people the way that He does. Finally, be an good example to those around you.
Many decisions that we make are good and making the right decision is awesome. However, we must follow our decision making with discipline. The reason why is very often our decisions are fueled with an excitement of emotions which gets us started in the right direction. But once the emotions dissipates, our discipline (the ability to follow through) will help us achieve our goals.
Focus on what is working in your life and watch it expand.
The more you focus on what is working in your life, the better life will get for you or at least it may feel that way which will keep you motivated and inspired. It’s similar to the attitude of gratitude, by acknowledging what you are grateful for–you find more to be grateful for.
