Motivational Novel 'The Excellence Habit' Wins New Apple E-Book Award for Excellence in Independent Publishing

The Excellence Habit by Vlad Zachary chosen as Medalist Winner in the Motivational / Self-Improvement category of the 2016 New Apple Summer E-Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.

Book Synopsis
"The Excellence Habit" is a biography of an idea, and the idea is simple. The main source of success is excellence, and excellence depends more on our internal circumstances. Grit, determination, and the discipline to put in the hard work as a matter of habit, and not a matter of need, are crucial. "The Excellence Habit" is a reminder that we are the owners of our success. "The Excellence Habit" also examines the distinction between success and excellence. Success is achieving high goals. Excellence is doing the right thing. It is a small mindset shift, with big results. Excellence can and will lead to success. Success, on the other hand, can be the biggest enemy of excellence. More often than not success is measured in social influence, recognition and wealth. For those practicing it faithfully - Excellence is its own biggest reward!
