It’s Monday. If you are reading this as soon as it posted it is really Monday night.
I contemplated back and forth if I should release an article I already wrote that is sitting in the que or give you the current events. So I put this together real quick. –
When in sports most of us were taught to be the best. Like the saying, “second place is the first loser.”
Something that held me back for a long time was the realization that there is only 1 person or team in first place. It’s a literal mathematical fact.
So I opted out. You can’t come in second place if you don’t play.
But who said we had to be THE best at what we are doing? Even if you are the absolute best at what you do, you will be knocked off the pedestal. Most of us will never know what that would feel like anyway.
We can be OUR best. Meaning, you can do the most excellent job you can. Use the talents you were given. Put the effort in to match and you will be your best self.
So as I’m in the hospital with my mom on the day after Mother’s Day, I want you to look around your life.
Are you exuding your best self?
Is your spouse getting a heavy hitter as a teammate through life?
I don’t want you to be THE best, I want you to be YOUR best!
