Are You The Best YOU . . . You Can Be?
“Are you the best you can be?” I’m sure your immediate response is, “Yes, I am the best . . . thanks for asking!” But seriously, think about that question. Maybe you are the best friend anyone can have, but not the best spouse. Maybe you are “The Employee of the Century”, but not the best parent. Gold-Medal Olympians, CEO’s, actors, athletes, as well as Nobel-Peace Prize winners, etc. are always finding ways to improve themselves . . . why not you?
There is always time for personal growth and development. It all starts with you . . . and the way you think! If you think the “YOU” of yesterday is okay, then you leave no room for improvement or change for the “YOU” of tomorrow. In order to be the best you can be, you have to be better . . . first. This takes action and time.
You must be able to take constructive criticism along the way. The criticism may be about your snoring, your clothes, your dialect, your lifestyle, your family, your profession, your kindness/rudeness, or anything. The criticism may hurt your feelings or have no affect at all. Either way, you have to be open to listen about your flaws. Flaws are good, because it proves none of us are perfect, and we always need improvement. As well as another opportunity to be the best “YOU” . . . you can be!
