In order to get ahead, and stay ahead; You’ve got to beat the competition: YOU!
The question should be, “How can I be better than the last or previous me, which was the best a moment or second ago?”
There really is no such thing as a plateau or “maintain” my self-being as I am.
If we are not challenged or do not challenge ourselves, we may fall in the trap of being stuck in the past.
Or is the competition that great?
Life should be based on kaizen, or continuous improvement. Aim at being the better of you.
Doing your best is an excuse! Challenge yourself to do better than your best. Add that special agreement of “having fun”.
Are you game?
