Excellence, to me is not a one-off awesome performance. Excellence stands only when Excellence sustains.
Today, we see so many Celebrities making it big one moment and fall down all the way or just plain ebb away into thin air in such a short period of time.
I’ve been asked so many times, “There are people in the music industry who have delivered half the number of songs and hits as you have – yet, they’re more successful than you are, how come?”
And that brings me to the question – How do they Define Success?
If it is all about shooting to fame overnight, being flooded with praises from all and sundry that defines success (in the context of celebrities), then that’s fleeting, to me. It’s like having an over-dose of an extremely scrumptious buffet – for breakfast, lunch & dinner all in one day and having no food to eat all, the next day and the many days to come.
Real Success is one that sustains over time. That stands the test of time. Growing even through all the twists & bends and standing out each time as delightful surprises.
Success is when that spark of passion, vision, dreams sown several years ago takes delightful forms of varying magnitudes, each having an impact of it’s own – small or big. Success is when Artistry becomes the very epistemology of life! When Sustained Excellence is on auto-pilot in your life, you know you are breathing Meaningful, Long-standing Success & Life.Tweet
