A generation that want to practice excellence has no room for mediocrity.
Mediocrity is when cattle and cars compete for space on the roads, in Ghana. Mediocrity is when goats, sheep and dogs compete with pedestrian for walk ways in Ghana. Mediocrity is when political leaders try to justify why the suffering of the masses is less now than the previous governments. Mediocrity is when you walk into a government institution, births and deaths, hospitals, land title registry etc) in this technological era, and they spend the whole day looking for your documents. Mediocrity is political equalization of insults, and justifying why one political party insulted more than the other.
No one practices the spirit of excellence and the spirit of mediocrity at the same time.
“So because you are lukewarm-neither hot nor cold, I am about to spit you out of my mouth”. (Revelation 3:16).
One is either practicing excellence or mediocrity. We are too used to the status quo in Ghana. Try to challenge any system or change any system and you will be singled out as the odd one instead. Decide to be the best even if others choose to be mediocre. Don’t tolerate mediocrity. Place greater value on knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Verbalise God’s word regarding your divine abilities, excellence and possibilities. Your mental image determines your actual future.
You can never become what you don’t visualise. Examine your personal values and ethical standards. Don’t just go with the crowd, and don’t just settle for anything. Daniel was outstanding, distinct and unique because he had an Excellent Spirit. He purposed in his heart that, he would not defile (He will practice excellence, not mediocrity) himself. Many businesses are collapsing, people are losing their jobs, broken relationships, apathy towards the things of God because no one wants to practice excellence. God deserves better, Ghana deserves better, your company or organisation deserves better and your church deserves better. Be excellent in all things by paying detail attention to every little thing around you and your organisation. The little things mean a great deal.
If only all drivers, including the so called elite will be in their lane and not drive on the shoulders of the road and knock down traffic lights and street lights….This too is mediocrity, and not excellence…
To be cont…
Stay blessed always and remember to love someone and mean it.
