Always Come from Your Best
Success is peace of mind, which is the direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.
Coming from your best creates your Warrior greatness. —Mel Cerveny
They thrive when others wither. A Warrior chooses to be the point person in leading the way. After all, who is better suited to lead the cause? Warriors believe it is up to them, that this is theiropportunity to shine—and they do.
Napoleon Hill said in the book Think and Grow Rich, “The majority of people are ready to throw their aims and purposes overboard and give up at the first sign of opposition or mis- fortune. A few carry on despite all opposition until they attain their goal.”
Let’s face it, struggles are necessary. They are God’s way of allowing us to expand, develop, progress, and become stronger. Warriors persevere. Warriors have the ability to change their circumstances in life.
The only things you are able to control are your thoughts, words, and actions. You determine how you respond to challenges, dif- ficulties, and setbacks. The good news is that every time you respond in a positive and constructive manner, you become stronger and more knowledgeable. You are more capable ofdealing with the next situation, challenge, difficulty, or setback that comes along. Whatever the obstacle put in your path, you will recognize or find a way to go over it, under it, around it, through it, or simply just let it be. Just do the best you are able to. If you fall short of the mark, do it again.
“Failing” is simply a judgment you or others place upon you. Doing your best, you may indeed fall short of someone else’s expectations. Who cares? Doing your best and giving your best effort isthe best you are able to do.
In the event you do something and realize afterwards that you could do better, then you are always able to choose again. In most cases, you may require practice, practice, and more prac- tice before you are operating at your best.
Our culture is full of comparisons. People like to compare them- selves to others. While some people may say that comparing is a way to motivate yourself, it is still a form of placing judgment upon yourself. You know when you are performing at your best. Why worry about comparing yourself to others?
Are you doing your best? Or are you merely competing, com- paring, and scoring yourself based on what others do? If so, why? All you have to do is perform at your best. You and only you control what you are doing. It is a choice. You have the power to do so. Start right now.
Remember, doing your best requires practice, practice, practice. Put on your socks, shoes, and lace them up and be your Warrior best. You are the best. I believe in you.
Are you choosing the effort to do the very best of which you are capable?
