“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?
