To succeed in our professional and personal lives it is important to strive to be our best every day. Realistically, some days we will do better than other days. As long as we continue to strive to do our best, however, we will continue to improve. This means that our “best” will continue to move upward.
The key is to strive to do our best, not someone else’s best. There will always be someone who is smarter than we are, more successful than we are, and has more than we have. That does not matter. What matters is that we improve and be the best we can.
Sometimes we may find ourselves in the opposite situation, however. Maybe we are the best in our group. Our true friends will be happy for us and support us in becoming even better.
Others, though, may be jealous and try to bring us down to their level. Some people can build themselves up only by tearing others down. Do not let them do this to you.
Always strive to be your best, even if it makes you much more successful than the others around you. Always try to improve.
When we can see improvement in ourselves, it gives us more confidence. With additional confidence we can do even better. Always work to be your best.
