Famous Quote Friday

“You don’t have to be the best, you just have to be your best”
Chris Widener


I have been listening to “Twelve Pillars of Success” By Chris Widener. It is an audio book based on the story “Twelve Pillars” by Jim Rohn. When he said “You don’t have to be the best, you just have to be your best.” I started laughing. For the longest time now I have always corrected people when they tell me I am the best. I simple just say, “I am not the best I just try my best.” I am never trying to be the best at anything I am always just trying to be my best at everything. It is that simple. Trying to be the best at something is great but you want to make sure you are trying the best of your abilities to be the best you can be at what you are doing. To quote part of the Boy Scout Oath “On my honor, I will do my best” That is all.


Have a great weekend everyone.
