Don’t try to be the best, just do your best.
December 29th - The best we can do is enough.
Do the best you can, with what you can, while you can and success is inevitable.
I like to think we’re all doing the best we know how to do what we can these days. Not everyone has the same means and resources but we use what what we have to do the best we can as far as living our lives goes. I’m not the best person I know, but I’m doing the best I can to live my life to the fullest.
There is not always a lot I can do but what I do is the best I’ve got to give. The best of what anyone can do should be enough. Sufficient for their lives. We are all so different and I don’t think another person should be able to determine if you are doing your best. Each of us knows just what our best is and don’t need others to tell us that is not good enough. Likewise we shouldn’t be jealous of what others do. They are only doing their best. There is no comparison.
I remember thinking that whatever I did was never good enough as far as what my parents thought i should be doing, so when I had my own children, I made sure to let them know that they were doing their best. I’d praise and encourage whatever it was they were doing. All any of us can do is to give it our best try.
We learn by doing and sometimes that means we make mistakes but at least we find out what we did wrong . Now we know better, we can do it better. If we don’t give our best, we won’t succeed at anything. It’s the trying and doing the brings success to any of us. So try to do your best at anything you do and you’ll find success is just ahead.
Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.
