What does it mean to do your best?

If you are doing your best, you will be happier than when you are not doing your best. We are here to do our best, not to do our worst. If you do your best, you will get the best. If you do your worst, you will reap your worst.

No matter where you are and what you are doing, try to always be the best, think the best, act the best, and live the best. That is the only way to a successful life.

You cannot be the best if you continue to do bad things. Remember, bad things cannot give you want you want. Only good things can give you what you want.

According to H. Jackson Brown, Jr., “If you are doing your best, you won’t have anytime to worry about failure.”

That is right.

If you are really, really doing your best in life and at work, you won’t have anytime to:

Worry about your failures.

Worry about your mistakes.

Please people who are not pleasing you.

Love people who are not loving you.

Be around people who are not thinking in positive ways.

Waste your time on things that are not helping you get better in life

Think about what others are thinking about you

Think negatively about the things that are not working well for you.

Doing your best allows you to ignore these things. If you can ignore them, the better and healthier and happier your life will be.

Ignore them!

There is no perfect time to start something. The right time to start anything is now. If not now, when?

If you want to start something, don’t wait for the perfect time to come. There is no perfect time to do anything. The perfect time is now, not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, not next year. If you don’t do it now, when are you going to do it.

If you don’t take action to change your life, if you don’t take action to change your situation, your life will never change. You are the only person who can change your life. Dan Millman said, “The time is now, the place is here. Stay in the moment. You can do nothing to change the past, and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for.”

Yes, you can’t change the past, but you can do a lot of things to shape your future. You can shape your future if you want to. You can do it by taking the right actions today. You can change your future by paying attention to the things that you are doing now. Don’t waste your time with negative, unproductive people. They will ruin your life for you.

If you don’t plan for tomorrow, you will not have tomorrow. If you don’t plant the right seeds today, you will not reap the right fruits tomorrow.

You can do it. You are the only one who can make your life better. Start small. Take baby steps. Do one thing at a time. Meet with the people who can change your life, and stay away from those who can’t.

Don’t wait for the perfect time. According to Arthur Ashe, “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
