Why do we hide behind a few successes and trumpet them as if much more can’t be done? Because mediocrity is now the standard, the excellence that should be normal has become the exception. So when a few excel, they quickly stand out. We become content with “mercy drops” of excellence, & forget that we’re called to receive “the showers of blessings”… We can ill afford to rest on the oars of past accomplishments. Our work is cut out for us—to not just be excellent but to be the champion of excellence…. We must not lose our will to excel & be marketable at the highest levels. We must be global players.—S.K. Pipim, The Transformed Mind, pp. 229-230.
