How to Be the Best At Everything You Do | Teaching Business Communication and Workplace Issues |

“Be The Best – At Everything You Do”

Every single time I’ve said this to someone, they come back with an argument:


“But how can I be the best in the world at everything? Or even anything?”


I then explain and clarify: “I never said ‘best in the world’. I only said ‘be the best’.“


So, what’s the difference?


One is comparing yourself with everyone else in your universe, and engaging in a futile struggle to be ‘better’ than them. The other is only looking within at yourself – and asking “Did I give it my all? Could I have done more?”


Look, in the ultimate analysis, there is only so much you, me, or anybody else can do. We all come with our built-in limitations, restrictions and boundaries. No matter how eager and determined he is, a man without legs cannot win the world high jump competition, and a lady without eyesight can’t shoot brilliant world-class photographs...
