“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.” William Faulkner
Are you your best self?
What is one thing you’ve learned this week?
I have always liked the concept of doing one thing that scares you every day. Stretching your skills, testing your strength and perseverance. When I fail in the attempt, I am disappointed but the fire is stoked to try again. And, when I succeed, I feel deliciously alive in a way no other experience offers. It is a heart lifting, fist-pumping excitement. To be alive and using all my capabilities.
I recently read about Abraham Lincoln and his early failures in business and political endeavors. Perseverance and stick-tuitiveness helps to keep going despite personal and/or professional setbacks.
Do you have written personal goals? Professional goals? Relationship/ family goals?
I think it is important to write down what you want to accomplish. Break it into tasks or smaller segments like months or weeks. That way, you will accomplish a big goal one small step or task at a time.
Your only competition is yourself. Dream big and work towards a better tomorrow.
What one step will you take today?
