Strive To Be The Best

“I strive to be the best at what I love to do. This statement is as much an affirmation as it is a philosophical expression. Striving to be my best means I never quite achieve it, and I am always trying to do better. In essence, it says that so long as I am alive, I will be a student.”


Are you still a student?

If not, what is stopping you from continuing to learn?

Are you the best at what you do?

If not, what is stopping you?

Could it be because you stopped learning?  Stopped challenging yourself?  Stopped having the drive to improve and to be better tomorrow than you are today?

If this sounds like you then you have to break the cycle and reverse the inertia.  You need conscious and deliberate effort to accomplish this.  Here’s how you can start taking deliberate action: go to Amazon or Barnes & Nobles or Overstock or whatever site you shop for books and pick up a book that will help you become a better speaker, a better cook, a better coach, a better writer, a better parent or a better person.  It doesn’t matter what it is, just make it something you think you could improve about yourself – something that will make you a better you.

When this book arrives give yourself one week to read it.  Then take one thing you learn from reading this book and put it into immediate action.  For example, let’s say you got a book to become a better speaker.  Well, then you have to take one thing you learned about speaking and put it into action by giving a speech or presentation.

The satisfaction you will get from seeing yourself improve will be priceless. And yes, it’s that easy.  So do it!  You will soon realize that the negative inertia that’s stopping you from being your best will disappear.

Happy Wednesday!
