Learning to Become Better Than Your Personal Best to Create Success
This is an exciting topic because you achieve great success when you learn to become better than your best. I was recently listening to Jim Rohn’s, “The Art to Exceptional Living,” and in it he shares a great way to improve beyond your best. I wanted to share this to push you a little because I think sometimes we work on ourselves to a point and then hit a plateau and stop. If you continue pushing the limits and work past your personal best imagine where you could go.
In Jim’s Rohn’s book he uses push-ups as an example for learning to do better than your best. He says for instance if right now the best you can do when you do push-ups is to do 5, you do 5. But then you rest and you can do 5 more, rest and do 5 more. Eventually you might be able to do 10 push-ups before you have to rest, then eventually 20 and so on. The best that you can do right now does not have to mean it will always be the best that you can do. You can get better and improve with time and continued effort.
If you think that you are at your best right now don’t stop. Try to keep growing, learning and getting better and your can far exceed what you best is at the moment. We can always be challenging ourselves to push our boundaries and growing to new levels. When you think you have done your best get into the habit of asking yourself, “how can I do even better next time.”
So I challenge you if you think you are at your best to keep working and pushing. Even if you have reached your personal best there is still room for improvement. I love how St. Jerome put it, “Good, better, best never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best.”
