Why don’t we STRIVE for excellence always?

“It seems that every life form on this planet strives toward its maximum potential…except human beings. A tree does not grow to half its potential size and then say, “l guess that will do.” A tree will drive its roots as deep as possible. It will soak up as much nourishment as it can, stretch as high and as wide as nature will allow, and then look down as if to remind us of how much each of us could become if we would only do all that we can.” Jim Rohn – Five Major Pieces To the Life Puzzle


Just a little something for y’all to think about this Monday – now, go do something great … and whatever you do, make sure you surround yourself with at least five people you enjoy, admire, even envy, a bit. Let them inspire you to be great.


Today’s post inspired by The Daily Prompt: Circle of Five – Awriter once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If this is true, which five people would you like to spend your time with?
