The Pursuit of Excellence IQ Matrix explores how to tap into your competitive spirit. It’s that competitive spirit that propels you to raise your standards of performance and excel at higher than expected levels. Pursuing excellence is, however, not necessarily about being the very best. Nor is it about being first. It’s rather about being the very best you can be by adding the most value to everything you do. Yes, of course, it’s important to be competitive and strive to get more out of yourself in comparison to others.
This is how most people measure excellence. And yet, excellence always begins from within. It begins internally. It’s a mental game. And once you understand this “inner game” you can then play it to the highest level and to the best of your ability.
This mind map walks you through the mindset, approaches, habits, and beliefs that build the foundations of excellence.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Pursuit of Excellence mind map.
- What it Means to Pursue Excellence: All four branches of this mind map explore the mindset, approaches, habits, and beliefs that build the foundations of excellence. You will immediately be able to implement and apply some of these concepts and ideas to your life. There will, however, be other things that will take a bit more time. And that’s okay. You need time to develop new habits, to ask better and more insightful questions, or shift how you think and the way you approach your life and circumstances. These things take time. However, the time you spend working on them will reap incredible rewards over the long-run. No longer will you feel incapable of achieving your goals. Things will, in fact, become easier over time as you develop key habits in the pursuit of excellence. Use this map as a checklist to help you stay on track as you work on improving your results and living your best life to the highest level of your ability.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for developing excellence in any field of endeavor. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively develop the habits, mindset, and behaviors that will help you live a life of excellence in the pursuit of your goals.
