When Your Best Is Not Enough

“In the long run, ‘good enough’ is never good enough.”- Robert Herjavec

You cannot achieve greatness without stretching yourself. If you are not getting what you want, you must do more than what you are doing right now. Because if you want more, you must do more. If you give more, you will get more.

No matter what, if you want to be successful, you must do more than what other people are doing. Because if you do what they are doing, you will get what they are getting. When you are doing your best, do not worry about failure. Just go for it. Just do your best. According to H. Jackson Brown, ” If you’re doing your best, you won’t have any time to worry about failure.” Do not focus on failure, focus on what you are doing.

If your best is not enough, then you can try these strategies:

“Put a few nickels in the machine.”

Do not expect to get the best if you don’t do your best. It is simple, but hard for so many people to follow. If you are not doing your best, if you are not giving your best, you are cheating yourself. You are not cheating your boss. You are cheating your future. According to Flip Wilson, “You can’t expect to hit the jackpot if you don’t put a few nickels in the machine.” If you want your life to change, you must put some “nickels in the machine.”

Develop yourself

If your best is not enough, you must develop yourself. You must do more than what you are doing right now. As Brigham Young famously put it, “Never let a day pass that you will have cause to say, I will do better tomorrow.” Do not let the fear of failure stop you from getting better tomorrow. To defeat fear, you must be brave. Are you brave enough to increase your best?

“Stay up and fight”

Life is all about fighting for what you want. If you don’t fight for what you want, someone else will help you. When you are faced with a problem, don’t abandon it. You must “stay up and fight” for what you want. If not, you are not going to get it.

Believe in what you are doing

if you don’t believe in what you are doing, you are not going to take it seriously. And to do your best work, you must believe in what you are doing. Anatole France once said, “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” If you believe in what you are doing, you will be good at it. Do you believe in what you are doing?

4 Ways To Live A Happier Life

The happiness of one’s own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul, one must try it include, as necessary to one’s own happiness, the happiness of others.”- Paramahansa Yogananda

Happiness is not what you keep; it is what you give to other people. When it comes to your own happiness, you are responsible for making yourself happy. Happiness is a make-it-yourself business. Remember, you cannot find happiness by doing the wrong things. You cannot find happiness by thinking the wrong thoughts. If you want to find your own happiness, you must think well.

To live a happier life, here are some strategies for you:

Believe in the glory of God

When you believe in the glory of God, nothing can touch you. If you are going to reach your highest potential in your life, you have got to believe in the glory of God. Charles Spurgeon said, “Nothing is able to damage the glory of God.” If nothing can damage the glory of God, nothing can damage you.

Focus on what you have

You cannot find happiness if you do not focus on what makes you really happy. Wealth comes from enjoying what you have. Wealth doesn’t come from chasing what you don’t have. It is what you have right now that is going to make you really happy.

You cannot see what you have if you do not focus on it. In the words of Charles Spurgeon, “It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.” You can make space for happiness by enjoying what you have.

Do not forget to love yourself

Even if you don’t focus on what you have, even if you don’t slow down to enjoy what you have, but do not forget to love yourself, to give yourself true love. Soren Kierkegaard said, “Above all do not forget your duty to love yourself.” Do not let the fear of other people’s opinions of you stop you from loving yourself. If you cannot love yourself, no one can love you.

Be patient with yourself

Be patient with yourself. Slow down to enjoy the good life. Stop running. Life is not about running; it is about you. It is about spending time with yourself. It is about listening to your inner voice. Soren Kierkegaard said, “Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.” Carl Rogers said, “The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” Do you agree with Carl Rogers?
