What is the secret of excellence?

Following is an excerpt from a samvaad (diaogue) session with Acharya Prashant.

Question: Sir, what is the secret of excellence?

Acharya Prashant: Excellence comes from enjoyment. Can you excel in something you do not enjoy? Can you really excel in something that you do not enjoy? Since childhood you are fed on a diet of statements like, “Hard work is the key to success.”
