W.I.N. Wednesday - Lessons From Life' s Most Powerful Question - Stop trying to be 'the best'.
"Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming."
Success is not about being 'the best', it is about being your best. Trying to be the best always results in comparing yourself with someone else. It means you have to compete with others and measure yourself against other people. It is a mindset of always trying to be as good as, or better than someone else. Trying to be the best often results in frustration, disappointment, resentment and too often results in people giving up.
Striving to be your best means you commit to always being better tomorrow, than you are today. It means acknowledging and building on your strengths and talents. It means you compete with yourself and not with outside sources or other people's perceptions. It is about being who you are but, creating distinction by being the best possible version of you.
Striving to be your best will produce greater results and greater success that trying too be 'the best'.
What's Important Now? - Commit to always be better tomorrow than you are today. How? Schedule time every day to read. Make time each week to watch an inspiring TED talk, or to spend time with someone who can help you to learn and grow. Reflect on and learn from your mistakes and failures.
