An Enemy Called Average

I read a book many years ago by John L. Mason. It is so profound and has always motivated me to be the best that I can be. The new and expanded version of the book can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Enemy-Called-Average-Updated-Expanded/dp/1890900877

In the book are 50 nuggets; a call to excellence for people in their personal lives. I read this book just as I received my bachelor's degree and it propelled me to seek the highest degree available.
Here are the Alphabet for Success from the Book:
A: Action; B: Belief;
C: Commitment; D: Direction
E: Enthusiasm; F: Faith;
G: Goals; H: Happiness;     
I: Inspiration; J: Judgment;
K: Knowledge; L: Love;

O: Obedience;  P: Persistence;
Q: Quality; R: Righteousness;         
S: Steadfastness; T: Thankfulness;
U: Uniqueness; V: Vision;
W: Wisdom; X: (E)xcellence;
