Motivational Monday – Seek to Achieve Not to Beat Others
We live in a highly competitive society where much of our focus is on getting ahead of everyone around us. We feel the constant need to beat whoever is on top.
At no time does this feel more real than when you are applying for college. Or when you are trying to secure the job of your dreams after graduation.
You want to stand out.
Be the Best.
Be the ONE!
And I say “YES!” be the best!
But be the best that YOU can be. Seek to outdo yourself! Forget about everyone else.
This outward focus is a huge distraction and ultimately a complete waste of time and energy.
You cannot change what everyone else is doing no matter how hard you try.
Your circumstances, talent and environment are unique to you.
Don’t try to measure up to anyone else’s standard. Set your own and live up to that standard.
Your sense of self and self-worth depend on no one else but you.
Strive to be the very best that you can be and you WILL stand out!
When you push aside the need to beat everyone around you and focus on achieving greatness for yourself, you not only rise to the top but become an inspiration for those around you.
So embrace your greatness, celebrate your individuality, nurture the gifts that are uniquely yours and strive to be the very best you ever!
