Going far beyond the call of duty, doing more than others expect-- this is what excellence is all about. And it comes from striving, maintaining the highest standards, looking after the smallest detail, and going the extra mile. Excellence means caring-- it means making a special effort to do more.
Integrity is success, whether or not is accompanies honors. It is the ability of a person to maintain a principle in the face of adversity or triumph. The shortsighted sacrifice character for gain, but the wise know that integrity is more valuable than gold and trust more desirable than fame. Integrity has its own reward-- inner peace.
Belief is the knowledge that we can do something. It's the inner feeling that what we undertake, we can accomplish. For the most part, all of us have the ability to look at something and to know whether or not we can do it. So in belief there is power; our eyes are opened; our opportunities become plain; and our visions become realities.
The power to hold on in spite of everything, to endure-- this is the winner's quality. Determination is the ability to face defeat again and again without giving up-- to push on in the face of great difficulty. Determination means taking pains to overcome every obstacle, to do all that's necessary (that doesn't compromise integrity) to reach our goals.
