Excellence is a Habit

Saturday was my wife's and my sixth wedding anniversary. We connected over a shared love of Muay Thai, and as the saying goes, "Couples that train together stay together." Kids and life do get in the way over time, of course. However, this year we decided to schedule some time to go back to the gym for a Muay Thai class and go out for food after.

It's amazing how good you feel after pushing yourself to succeed. It's hard to find time to go to the gym, to spend time connecting with your significant other, or to push out of your comfort zone in life or in business. The light bulb moment is when you realize that it's just as hard to stay where you are. Life won't be easier if you don't make time for the things that really matter.

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit." This sign was up on the wall in the gym, and it is 100% true. Excellence, or mediocrity for that matter, is a product of our repeated thought and action patterns. Doing one perfect kick doesn't make you an excellent Muay Thai fighter. Doing one amazing real estate or business transaction doesn't make you an excellent business person. It's through education, training, and repeated action where excellence is born.

When people think of time travel, they often contemplate how it might be possible to change one minute detail and alter the course of history. They rarely think that if they changed one habit today, they could drastically change their future for the better. What is one thing you could change today that might help you reach your goals?
