"We are what we repeatedly do." In the original quote, it talked about excellence being a habit. You need to be careful that you don't use excellence as winning or success though. Winning is a result, not a habit. Sure you can win a whole bunch of times and that might make you feel like a winner. But just because you don't win every time doesn't mean you are showing excellence or other attributes of success. If you are a nice person regularly, then you are a nice person. If you complain about everything around you all the time, then you are a complainer. If you are someone that regularly puts in the time on studying or training or whatever, then you are a hard worker. If you are someone that cheats all the time, then you are a cheater. I think most would pretty much agree with these comments. And at the same time so many think that they are stuck being whatever it is they are and can't change it. If someone feels like they are unable to do something, or they are overweight, or they aren't smart, whatever, many times its because they constantly are telling themselves they are this. And then they do the actions that go along with it. For example, " I'll never lose all this weight I have gained. I guess I'm going to be overweight forever and so screw it....I'm going to eat that cake." The person saying this is pigeon-holing themselves and never allowing themselves a chance to be what they want. If you want to be something else, you can make that happen. It must be a constant pursuit to be the person you want to be. If you want to be a nicer person, then be nice all the time. This doesn't mean to "fake it til you make it". It means to be nice more often. If you want to be someone that is healthy and fit and lives that lifestyle with all the things that go with it, then do THAT, every day. It doesn't mean you need to be perfect every day. But it does mean you need to actively BE that person every day. The YOU that you want to be is in your control. That EXCELLENCE you are chasing is right there for you to pick up and run with! Pick it up every single day, and you will be that person! :)
