AN ESSAY ON MY PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE BY Margaret Omotola Osunrinde email@example.com
Life is beyond a state of physical and biological existence; it is also a platform for self-realization, which is viable by self-determination, improvement and socialization. This is why I ensure to always strive hard and apply the principle of excellence in whatever I do. I know that my motivation would keep me in tune with life dynamics such that the harder I work, the better I score and the more fulfilled I become. Everyone has their own personal outlook on life, but whatever one’s opinion is, excellence is in tandem with life fulfillment as fulfillment results to happiness. Aristotle once expressed that “Happiness is the most desirable thing…show more content… The few mere men and women who had demonstrated excellence had become kings in their world. Their lives have been laced with success; they are fulfilled and happy.
Having realized that excellence is a process and can be achieved, as I grew older, I started to form personal goals, and pursued them fervently. I would set academia and performance-related objectives, and achieve them. Although, in the process of my goal pursuit, I have experienced the natural process of success and setbacks.
As I gained more experience and observed people who achieved excellence the more, I started to identify a certain pattern of principles and beliefs that linked up successes. I acted in accordance to
these and started to experience excellence in my endeavors – whether it was being on the dean’s list, graduating as one of the best student in my department, delivering record-breaking results where I work, and so on. I have established that as long as one keep focusing on these key principles, results would be eminent and one’s life will continually become a state of admiration for others. It will be a path that people will like to watch, learn and follow.
It is believed that commitment, diligence, confidence, focused connection, positive imagery, distraction control, ongoing learning, and mental readiness form the foundation for excellence.
