My quest for excellence allows me to give my best.

I am the first to acknowledge the importance of aiming for excellence in everything I do.
I am naturally inclined to give my best in every situation, so excellence is always my goal.
When I am at work, exhaustion and frustration can set in easily. At these times, it would be understandable if I did less than optimum work. But instead, I choose to push through with my best efforts. That is when I achieve excellence.
I know that I can always give one more effort. Each time I push myself, I find myself reaching further ahead than before.
I am amazed by what I can do and how far I can go in my quest for excellence. I believe I have every ounce of drive and zeal within me required to reach my goal.
Today, I commit to living up to the teachings of my parents by giving my best in any situation. I believe in whole-hearted efforts.
With excellence, the parameters of any goal can be met. So regardless of what needs to be accomplished, to me, excellence is the real goal and that is what I know I can achieve.
