I heard someone say “I’m doing my best but it’s not good enough”.
Your best is always good enough – it’s your best.
When we let ourselves believe that everything we have to offer is still not enough, we are the problem.
All my effort – that’s the best I can give.
All my sincerity exhausts what I have inside.
All my intelligence means I have turned my curiosity loose to be open to learn more – do that and it is the best that you can do.
I’m the best spouse and father I can be – if you give all you’ve got, you succeeded in spite of any criticism.
Confusing our best with how to get better is what’s killing us.
Your best is everything you can muster and that’s also how we get better.
No employee review, criticism from a mate, harsh judgment from yourself will make you better.
Just be the fine person you are and note the difference.
