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?

How To Create A Life Of Purpose

“Either get busy living or get busy dying.”- Stephen King

The purpose of life is to live, is to be happy. So if you are not living your own life, then what are you doing with it? Are you busy living your life? If you haven’t started living your best life, it is never too late to start. Because if you are not living your life, you are busy living for others.

To live for yourself, to create your own life, you can try the following strategies.

Do not be afraid to live your life out loud

“If you ask me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.” – Emile Zola

Your time on earth is limited. You are not going to live forever. So why are you not living your best life? It is your life. Do not live in fear. Do not let fear stop you from living your best life. Because if you are not living your life, you are wasting it.

Follow your own path

Do you know what you want for yourself? If you know what you want for yourself, do you know how to get there? No matter what you are chasing in your life, you can achieve it. But to do that, you must follow your own path.

In other words, you must find what you love to do and do it well. Lawrence J. Peter said, “If you do not know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else.” Look, if you do not know where you are going, it is okay to ask for help. The Scripture says, “Ask, and it will be given to you.” So if you don’t know what you are doing, ask for help. If you do not know where you are going, ask for help. Because it is okay to ask for help.

Always do your best

If you want the best, you must first give your best. According to Robert Herjavec, “We don’t need to be perfectionists in everything we do- it’s imperfect world, after all. We do need, however, to do everything we are capable of doing in whatever pastime we choose.” Whatever you are doing, do it with all your might. Because you will never get more than what you put into something.

So if you want the best, you must first do your best. H. Jackson Brown once said, “If you’re doing your best, you won’t have any time to worry about failure.” Even if you fail, do it again. Don’t quit!

“When you come to a roadblock, take a detour.”

Success is not easy. It comes with lots of failures. And if you are not willing to fail, if you are not willing to face the impossible, then you are not ready to move on. No matter what you are facing right now, you are not alone. Don’t give up on yourself. No matter what, hang in there. Your time is coming. Mary Kay Ash famously said, “For every failure, there’s an alternative course of action. You just have to find it. When you come to a roadblock, take a detour.” When what you are doing is not working for you, don’t be scared to try something else. Will you try it?
