One of the ways we can truly manifest as people of God is through excellence. Our God is an excellent God so our lives must show His excellence.
Excellent according to Dr Myles Munroe is defined as highest quality, superior standard, extreme quality, and maximum quality; a constant effort to improve, get better and outdo your previous.
The opposite of excellence is mediocrity and mediocrity is simply doing below your potential at each point. Therefore to become excellent you must constantly seek to maximise all your potential and do your best. If you keep pretending that mediocrity is your best, you will never achieve success.
I have explained how you can maximise all your potential and die empty in this article:
