What is Excellence?


Some of us strive for perfection, but true perfection is not attainable – however if we chase perfection, we can maybe catch excellence.

Confucius said: The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

Desire is the key to motivation, but its’ determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – the commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.

Excellence is an art won by training and habit. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit, is not a skill – it is an attitude

I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination. Believe you can and you’re halfway there – Theodore Roosevelt

We may know what we are, but we don’t know what we may become . . . strive to become excellent, South Africa needs excellent women!
