The Ingredients of Excellence – Part II
By: Rick Boxx
October 3, 2012

When I was a commercial banker, I loaned money to many small businesses that seemed to live on a roller coaster. They would have a year or two of great success then significant losses would follow.

As I became more experienced, I learned a common denominator to many of these volatile businesses was their attitude. Many of these leaders convinced themselves they were not good enough to experience continued success.

Philippians 4:8 teaches, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

One of the ingredients of excellence is a good and pure attitude. If you’re experiencing cycles that concern you, look for the head trash that needs eliminated.

Live your faith at work. Take the FIRE assessment.
