What Is Your Best?
What is the best you can give to turn your life around, make that that million dollars or lose that 30 lbs? Sometimes we appear to say that we are giving our best but in reality we are not putting in our best effort to get what we want.
When you say that you are going to give your best yet you harbor thoughts that says it is too hard to accomplish something or it will take too much effort or time to do it, most likely you will not be able to give your best effort.
In the video clip above taken from Facing The Giants, the team dread the death crawl and it seems to them that 10 yards is the best that they can give. However the coach called up Brock, instructed him to give his best effort and Brock manage to cover almost the whole football field. The coach also blindfolded him so that Brock will not stop until he really gave his best and totally can’t take it anymore.
When someone is really committed into giving his best, unbelievable results happen. What you think that you can’t achieve (limiting beliefs) became possible when you give your best effort.
What you need to know after watching this video is that most of us are not really giving our best every day. There are limiting beliefs that stop us from giving our best. Many of us can say that we gave our best effort but we don’t really mean it when we say it.
Saying that you gave your best effort is easy and truly giving your best effort is hard. Make it a point to say what you mean. When you say that you are going to give your best effort, make it happen. Also remember that it isn’t possible to give your best when all you think about is how hard things is going to be.
Decide now to give your best everyday and be prepared to see unbelievable results happen.
**P.S** What do you think is holding you back from giving your best? Self doubt? Fear? Or any other factors? I would love to hear from you in the comment below.
