I don't know about you but I constantly ask myself what is it that makes a school, a care home, a hospital, a business or any organisation brilliant and what can we learn from what talented colleagues are doing in schools, care homes, hospitals, businesses and organisations across the country and across the world.

And of course what it comes down to every time is the people and everything I have been reading recently has once again reminded me that the potential to be that exceptional human being exists within everyone, and there are no exceptions. Being exceptional is not defined by what you have or what you do, rather it depends critically on your attitude and the decisions you make. Extraordinary achievers are ordinary people who make extraordinary decisions about the events in their lives. It would be easy to justify reasons for other peoples success – such as lucky breaks, better education, wealthy parents, etc but the truth of the matter is that attitude makes the difference between extraordinary achievements and mediocre results. All exceptional achievers make clear deliberate decisions about themselves, their future and their role in the world and whatever anyone tells you our decisions drive our destinies and shape our futures.

While you can’t change your past and the challenges in your present may “seem” insurmountable, almost every aspect about your future is yet to be decided. I know that these are challenging and difficult times for us all but the choice is yours. You can choose a path of struggle, hard work and mediocrity or you can choose to rewrite your future and become exceptional. The toolkits, the strategies and the support is out there so let me know if I can help!
