Excellence

 


Socrates once said, "To find yourself,


Think for yourself."



Think for yourself to find yourself,


To find the answers,


To wade through the uncertainties of life, 


To dig through its hardships, 


To find the strength within and deal.




Aristotle said, "Excellence is never an 


accident. It is always the result of high 


intention, sincere effort, and intelligent 


execution; 


it represents the wise choice of many


alternatives - choice, not chance, 


determines your destiny."



What determines our destiny should not 


be in the hands of unwise leaders hell 


bent on power and glory at any cost;  


Where intentions are selfish, efforts


insincere in its adherence to domination


and wisdom of choices eliminated to one


choice, the subjugated choice with no 


alternatives for a better determined 


destiny.  


When that one choice does not conflict 


with wisdom, there are no fearful 


consequences, but when that one choice


degrades into ignorance, into violence, 

 

into crimes against humanity then there


are fearful and tragic consequences; and 


the leader is no longer guided by 


excellence, but by power and abuse of 


power and the execution of actions 


unreasonable, criminal and unintelligent.


Let us, for our destiny sake, strive for 


excellence and choose leaders that are 


and have a track record for excellence.


                                    



Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
