Many people… think of success and excellence as though they are the same. They are not.

Success is perishable and often outside our control. In contrast, excellence is something that’s lasting, dependable and largely within a person’s control…

People who truly excel don’t fear or resent excellence in others. People who shoot only for success, however, always feel threatened by other people’s success.

Success is measured by what others think... Excellence is best measured by the achiever.
