Seems pretty simple, right?
Afterall, we can’t do more than we can!
Afterall, trying harder than we are capable of never works out!
Afterall, our best is our best, and there is nothing better than our best!
So, why is it that if we do our best sometimes it is not good enough?
Well, it is!
The problem is not with ourselves. The problem is with other people! Everybody has different levels of what we are capable of. One persons best effort will not always be the same as someone else’s best effort. This is what makes us all individuals.
Many times we also compare ourselves to other people. If only I could look like Brad Pitt. If only I could run fast like Usane Bolt. If only I could hit a baseball like Derek Jeter. And then there are our friends, family and the immediate people in our lives. If only I could be like my older brothers or sisters. If only I could be like my parents. If only I could have the incredible faith like my minister or wisdom of my school professor.
There is nothing wrong with achieving less than someone else if you “Do Your Best”! Doing you best is a happy thing. It means you have taken your god given ability, which none of us can change, and we put our heart and best effort into whatever it is!
So, next time you look at something you have done in life and wonder if it is successful?……just simply ask yourself if you did your best! If the answer is yes, then you are a SUCCESS!
