Becoming A Better You



“If you have a dream, don’t just sit there. Gather courage to believe that you can succeed and leave no stone unturned to make it a reality.”

The tendency to compare ourselves to others is as human as any other emotion. Certainly you am not alone in your experience. Yet that person you feel inferior is all in your head. They are not luckier than you. Their brain is not more powerful than yours. They were not blessed with a skill set that you could not develop. Do you really think successful people got where they are today by sheer luck? Do you think they achieved their ambitious goals overnight without setbacks along the way?

Michael Jordan was cut from his high-school basketball team because he “wasn’t good enough.” The Beatles were rejected from a studio label because they had “no future in show business.” Charlie Chaplin was rejected by Hollywood studios because he was “too nonsensical to ever sell.” J.K. Rowling, the author Harry Potter, encountered rejection after rejection for a full year before a publisher finally agreed to accept her work.

The difference between winners and losers is simple. Winners keep moving forward matter what trials they face while losers give up at the drop of a hat. You do not lose until you quit, so do not quit….. continue to grow and improve yourself.

Always strive to be the best possible versions of yourself – not only for you, but for the benefit and contribution you can give to others. Work hard to take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Commit to growing a little each day. Begin today to become a better you.

“If you try anything, if you try to lose weight, or to improve yourself, or to love, or to make the world a better place, you have already achieved something wonderful, before you even begin. Forget failure. If things don’t work out the way you want, hold your head up high and be proud. And try again. And again. And again!”
