In our quest for excellence, we must guard ourselves from being critical, jealous and uninformed people. They usually say things that have no impact whatsoever on the truth. A person who is constantly critical of others constantly compares themselves to other people. It’s a trap that all of us should be wary of, and would be wise to avoid. When we strive for excellence, work hard and see the best in every situation, we will refuse to allow obstacles like jealousy sideline us. Mediocre people seem to be tamed and subdued by obstacles, but excellence always rises above them. In times of adversity, you don’t have an obstacle to overcome, you have a choice to make. Don’t become critical; just strive to be the best. Make sure that what you speak brings forth good fruit; that it helps and doesn’t hinder. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find people who have an excellent spirit about them. In order to be successful in any area of life, we have to strive to do the best and not become critical.
