I was reminded of this saying during a client meeting this week.
It is one that I first heard many moons ago and one that remains true to this day. Well for me anyway.
Regardless of where we are in life, often the fear of success can keep us from becoming the best we can be.
Being the best is not always about being faster,stronger, richer but about being more you. Being you but on a very good day, almost all of the time. Being the best is not about setting unrealistic idealistic expectations but about being in the moment. Being present, living your life in a way that is best for you, for your family and for your friends.
I know I found it helpful to work with a coach (for quite a long time as it happened) who helped me to recognise not only what becoming the best meant for me (it’s not all about being faster, stronger, richer) but also that being my best was not only desirable but possible.
I shall always be grateful for the change personal development made in my life and how it now allows me to continue my journey into the light. Not in a religious or evangelical way but in an enlightened way. Don’t get me wrong, I still feel have fear. Change is scary, if it isn’t scary it’s probably not significant. Sometimes change is necessary but growth is always optional.
