Know-how and excellence

Put in your mind once and for all, that know-how has tremendous power.

It is indispensable for excellence.

If you want to excel in anything, first acquire the know-how to do it.

Without that, it is impossible to excel. Instead, you will fall into mediocrity.

Are you for excellence or mediocrity. If you are for excellence, go for know-how.

It takes determination and effort to acquire know-how but it is worthwhile.

If you are a student or intending to go to school, normally you would like to excel in uyour studies. Nothing stops you. Such an ambition is a legitimate one. And the good news, you can do it.

I’ve read a number of posts since getting up this morning.

I must say destiny took me to Academic Excellence 2 by Doyin on her site Doyin Musings. I enjoyed reading it so much I had to go look for Academic Excellence 1. Thank God I found it.

Doyin, who, in her own words, and I agree, is “A young, beautiful and smart Queen writer whose heart is ever panting for God and how to grow and attain excellence in this divided world” gives sound advice which everyone pursuing studies should read.

I reblogged Academic Excellence 2.

If I am writing this, it is so that many young people may have the opportunity to read this sound advice. I know it will make a big difference in the academic lives of many who will read it attentively and follow what she says.

Academic excellence, of course, opens the door to greater opportunities that can lead to an excellent life.

Doyin walked her talk as a student and bagged a First Class honours when she graduated.

All good parents like to see their children excel; but I know some children won’t listen to their parents when they start urging them to shun laziness and work hard to succeed.

But if you find someone who has lived what she is sharing especially with her own results to testify, wisdom demands that you pay heed.

I do hope that many young people will read Academic Excellence 1 and 2. If some parents are reading this, please, help your children read them.

Look for ways

Look for ways
To bring out the best
In you;
There is so much in you;
Look for ways
To bring it out.
Are you ready?

Look for ways
To excel;
You are greatly endowed;
And you can excel;
Why not look for ways
To do so.
You better do.

Look for ways to shine;
Don’t cover the light
In you;
Put it on the lampstand
To shine
And light up
The world;
Look for ways to do that.

Look for ways
To get to the peak
Of the mountain;
It’s steep, I know;
Extremely hard to climb;
But there is a way;
And you must look
For it.

Look for ways
To become a champion;
Yes, I mean a superstar;
That, you can become;
There’s a way;
And you will find it,
If you look for it.
Are you ready?

Will you look
For ways to be your best?
That is your challenge;
Others are doing it,
Why not you?
I don’t like you
To short sell yourself;
Look for ways to be
The best version of you
That you can be.

No one is perfect

We aren’t perfect;
That’s okay;
If we were perfect,
The world would be perfect;
That is the truth;
Had we been perfect,
The world would have been
We aren’t perfect;
We are imperfect;
We have our shortcomings;
Look at me!
I have my limitations;
I have my weaknesses;
And it couldn’t have been otherwise;
No one is perfect;
And no one expects anyone
To be perfect;
You are only expected
To do your best;
To be excellent, if possible;
To go for excellence;
To strive to excel;
To strive to shine;
To radiate good light around;
To light up the world.
Don’t worry that you are not perfect;
Worry that you are not striving
To be the best
That you can be.

The drive for excellence

Mine is an excellence mind set;
Believing in excellence,
Loving excellence,
And striving for excellence
Will bring excellence;
A low drive for excellence
We must shun;
A high drive for excellence
We must embrace;
People of excellence
We should be;
And to excel ought to be our dream.

Beat your own record

Make it your daily challenge;
To beat your own record;
To do this everyday;
To do better today
Than you did yesterday;
To do better tomorrow
Than you did today;
That is how you grow;
It’s not to compete with others;
It’s to compete with yourself;
To beat your own record;
Not another person’s record;
Your own very record.
Yes, that’s the way to go;
Everyday, January to December,
To beat your own record.
