The Art Of Being The Best

We all want to be the best, but only a few are willing and ready to be the best. We are striving every day to be the best at what we do. Companies are innovating every day to be the best in their chosen products. Countries are fighting to be the best in the world. It is fun to be the best at what you do?

How many people really want to be the best?

How many people really have what it takes to be the best at what you do?

How many companies are ready and willing to be the best?

You here people or businesses say something like, “We are good at what we do.” Are they really good at what they are doing, or just talking?

Being the best is not about how much money you or your business has in the bank. Being the best means growth and development. Because it takes the best to grow, to mature, to know what they want, to know what they don’t want, and how to move forward.

Being the best means you are doing what others don’t want to do. There is growth in chaos. There is no growth in familiarity. There is no growth in popularity. What is popular is dead. What is new comes with lots of opportunities to explore. There is no growth in status quo. There is only maintenance and stability in status quo. If you want to grow, a chaotic organization is the right place for you to be. If you want stability, an organization that promotes status quo is the right place for you.

Status quo and growth cannot coexist. Period.

You can be the best at what you do, but it comes with a big price. Everything comes with a price. If you want an expensive car, you should be willing and ready to pay the price. It comes with a price.

Growth- personally and professionally- comes with a price. If you are ready and willing to pay the price for whatever you want, then there is nothing you cannot achieve. Michael Phelps says, “If you want to be the best, you have to do things that others aren’t willing to do.” That is right.

The magic formula for growth (professionally and personally) is doing what others don’t want to do.

Being the best means you are committed to doing better everyday. It means excellence. Pat Riley says, “Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better.”

If you are committed to doing more than what your peers are doing, if you are ready to go the extra mile for your company, for yourself, you will be the best at what you do. Always find ways to be the best, meaning always find ways to add value to yourself and your organization. You will be the best if you can do the best.

You can be the best. To do that, ask of yourself more than what your peers are asking of themselves.

The Secret Of Your Future

Can you predict your future? Do you know how your future is going to look like?

It depends on where you are today, what you are doing today, and what you have done in the past. It depends on how you are living your life right now.

To know how your tomorrow will look like, take a few minutes to ask yourself the following questions:

What am I doing right now? Am I spending my time wisely? Am I working hard and smart to better myself? Am I working hard to change the things that have not been working for me? Am I associating myself with the right people? Am I ready to learn from people who are better than me? Am I listening to great people? Am I been honest with myself? Do I really know what I want? Do I have what it takes to pursue what I want?

Why are the above questions relevant to your growth and development in life?

Because your future is predictable. Your future is in your own hand. Your future will get better when you get better. Your future will change for good when you change what you are doing right now. If you want to be the best, do the best things. Do small things in the best ways.

The key to your success is in your own hands. The key to your life is in your own actions. The key to your success is in your daily actions. It is hidden in your actions. You cannot separate your actions from your results. You get what you put into something. You get what you plant. If you plant great seeds, you will reap great fruits. If you don’t plant at all, you will reap nothing.

You can achieve anything you put your mind to. But if you put your mind to something that is not realistic, you will get an unrealistic result. Before you decide on what to pursue, make sure it is what you really love to do. Do what you love, not what you hate.

Mike Murdock said, “The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.”

Let us face it. No one will change your life for you, because no one knows what you want. You know what you want, only you can figure out how to get what you want. Right now, if what you are doing is not helping you move closer to your dreams, it is time for you to rethink about it, and find out how to make it better. If you cannot make it better, then it is time to move forward. If you don’t move forward, if you don’t change your bad habits, you will always get the same results.

If you want things to change for you, do things differently. If you want a better future, start creating now. It is never too late.
