Here’s something that bugs me.

The way we are always told to be the best.

I grew up being told by a lot of people that I had to always excel at EVERYTHING. Sometimes I achieved my goals, but whenever I fell short, sometimes it made me feel like a failure – also another falsehood.

It took a long time to realize that sometimes it’s all about GIVING it your best.  While that may make other people look at you as ordinary or average – being somewhere in the middle is not always a bad thing.

As long as YOU have given it EVERYTHING that YOU’VE got.

This way of thinking helped me to see my weight and my fitness goals in a new light. It wasn’t necessary to have the best figure, perform the most reps, or sweat the most during my most awesome workout routine.

What really mattered? That I was taking action every day to get where I wanted to be. Sometimes I did better than I did at other times. Sometimes I even did better than other people. And sometimes, I was just happy with leaving it all on the table – whether I did well or not.

And that’s OK. That’s what life is REALLY about.

We don’t thrive by always being The Best. We succeed by making our best effort consistently – right along with everybody else who’s trying.
