Give your best to life and you will get your best life in return.
Do your very best. There is nothing like a job well done. Many people have developed the philosophy of “that’s good enough.” They say it all the time. With their work, with their relationships, with their finances, and with their health. I once heard Brian Tracy say, “ ‘Good Enough’ seldom is.” So often we look at something and think it is good enough, but it is not. We have not done our best, we have given a meager effort, but we hope we can get by. We have not finished what we said we would; we just settle for where we are. We sometimes think we cannot change our future. That is what saying, “Good enough” leads to. “Good enough” leads to mediocrity and disaster.
Give life your very best. Live life to the fullest. Commit to your future and don’t settle for anything less than your best. Live an extraordinary life. Abe Lincoln said, “I do the very best I know how – the very best I can and I meant to keep on doing it until the very end.” What if everybody in our society developed that attitude? What if everybody did their absolute best? How would your community change? How would the environment at work change? How would you change if you put forth your best effort in everything you did?
We weren’t designed to live half-heartedly. We were designed to live full lives. We were designed to develop ourselves into people of greatness. We were designed to dream, hope, act, and love. That is what we are here for. We aren’t here to just take up space. We aren’t here to simply get by. We aren’t here to just settle for average. We were put here to flourish, to excel and become people of significance. None of this will happen if we settle for anything besides our best.
I hope you live life to the maximum. Live the best life you can. Don’t settle for less than your best. Don’t let difficulties slow you down along the path to your dreams. We only have one life to live. We must do the best we can with the time that we have been given to us. Life is a precious gift, don’t waste it. Some people will have small accomplishments while others live their wildest dreams. What is the difference? Those who live their dreams have taken action. What are the action steps you must take? Those who live their dreams have dealt with difficulties and faced their problems. What difficulties are holding you back? Those who live their dreams go after each day with passion and with a purpose. What is your purpose? Those who live their dreams do their very best in life. Give your best to life and you will get your best life in return.
