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.
