In our quest for excellence, we must guard ourselves from being critical people. They are the people who are either jealous or uninformed. They usually say things that have no impact whatsoever on the truth. A person who is constantly critical of others, their jobs or their spouse is one who constantly compares themselves to others. It’s a trap to allow them in your life. If you do, you’ll be one unhappy camper. We should strive for excellence, work hard, and try to see the best in every situation. That way, getting sidelined by obstacles won’t happen to us.
Mediocre people tend to be subdued by obstacles in life, but excellence always rises above them. Listen, in times of adversity you don’t have an obstacle to deal with, you have a choice to make: be critical or strive to be the best. Do my words bring life or death? It’s hard to find people who have a spirit of excellence. In order to be a success in life, don’t be critical; just strive to do the best you can.
