Why Should You Give Your Very Best Effort?

“When people see you give your very best, they want to learn from you and get behind you because you are the very best!” -Michael J. Fite

Keep this in mind whenever you wonder the power behind giving your best in everything that you do. You may not think people are watching you, but the reality is that they are watching you. Every move that you make and every word that you say is under constant monitoring and scrutiny.


If you do not think  people are watching the effort that you put into your goals and dreams, just take a look around you. A person may not tell you that they are watching, but if they look up to you, they will follow in your footsteps. It is hard to tell and ask someone to give their best when you are not giving your best effort.

In 10 years of military service and 13 years of marriage, I have seen how giving my very best has not only been beneficial to myself, but it has been beneficial to my family, my co-workers, and even random people. The more I give my very best, the better I become as an example onto others as well as myself.

I encourage you to give your very best in everything that you do. Do not let your own fears and thoughts of your limits get in the way because you are capable doing a lot more when you simply do it. When you are giving your best, it makes people want to turn, watch, and emulate what you are doing. When this happens, you become the example to those who look up to you as to how to be the very best! Let’s remember that your very best can inspire the masses to do their very best, but they need to see you give your very best first.


I have two simple questions to ask you. Feel free to answer and leave a comment below:

  • Are you giving your very best effort in what you are doing?
  • Are you ready to give everyone watching you your very best effort?

  1. Because it is the right thing to do. I want myself and the people I care about to be proud of me. This post gave me the boost of positivity I really needed today after a day of dealing with people whose collaboration with me and acknowledgement was less than supportive. They don’t give their best but I cannot slack off because I have to answer to my own principles


    • MOL! I appreciate your comment and insight a lot! I am happy that you receive a boost today from the post and I want to see you continue to give your best because you do inspire myself and others to give our very best!


  2. Until recently I wasn’t willing to go forth and give my very best, I was use to self sabotaging myself because of the abuse I endured growing up… Like I said it wasn’t until recent did I start to give my best for Christ, so others around me could benefit from it… Your post has inspired me to be even more determine from this point forward to try and be my best at everything God guides me to complete.
