  “We have about five choices in our life. We can be bad at what we do. We can be average at what we do. We can be good at what we do, which probably is God’s expectation for whatever ability He gave us, Or we can be hashtag excellent , or we can be hashtag elite . And everybody has a choice as to what they want to do and how they want to do that, but if you’re going to be excellent or elite you got to do special things. You have to have special intensity. You have to have special focus. You have to have a special commitment and drive and passion to do things at a high level and a high standard all of the time. It doesn't matter what God-given ability that you have; that, probably, can make you good. But without the rest of it, I’m not sure you ever get excellent or elite, and that’s the part we’re trying to get to.” hashtag motivation
