“There are many people, particularly in sports, who think that success and excellence are the same thing.
They are NOT the same thing.
Excellence is something that is lasting and dependable and largely within a person's control.
In contrast, success is perishable and is often outside our control.
If you strive for excellence, you will probably be successful
eventually. People who put excellence IN the first place have the patience to end up with success.
An additional burden for the victim of the success mentality is that he is threatened by the success of others and he resents real excellence. In contrast, the person that is fascinated by quality is excited when he sees it in others.”
