We only have about five choices in our life.
We can be bad at what we do. We can be average at what we do. We can be good at what we do, which probably is God’s expectation for whatever ability he gives us. Or we can be excellent. Or we can be elite.
Everybody has a choice as to what they want to do and how they want to do that.
To be excellent or elite, you must do special things. You have to have special intensity. You have to have a special focus. You have to have a special commitment, drive, and passion to do things at a high level and standard all the time.
It doesn’t matter what God-given ability you have, that probably can make you good. But without the rest of it, I’m not sure you ever get to excellent or elite.
