Always do your best.
There’s no perfection, only the will to reach for it.
“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
– Theodore Roosevelt
Do your best for yourself first. People will notice as you best yourself again and again.
In time, the best are the peoples who bested themselves on and on. They don’t compare themselves with others.
“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.”
– Og Mandino
You need to develop the habit of being constant in your effort to besting yourself every day.
What do you like to do?
In what you like to do, find something that you are very good already in it. Then focus on developing it to become the best.
No one can do it for you. You’ll have to work hard and keep doing so.
I’ll recommend a great book from Og Mandino!
Find something that you like in your job.
The more things you like with your job, the more you’ll like your job. This may seems complicated, but if you can find something to like with you job, your job will be a lot easier.
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
– Albert Schweitzer
So, if you want to be successful in your job, you need to like something about what you do.
Too many people want to do only what they like. They focus on one or two things and just want to do that. It’s an impossible dream.
Yes you could end up doing something you really like, but there’s always a little something in it that you don’t. If you can find the will to do what you don’t like, it will become a drive into becoming the best in that fields.
You have an influence even if you don’t want to.
Your existence is having an influence on everything around you.
From Wikipedia: “The Butterfly effect is the concept that small causes can have large effects.”
You can deny. Most people are doing this.
“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”
– William James
When you accept the fact that you do have an influence on everything around you, then you can start to choose how you direct that influence.
You’ll make mistake. We all do.
Keep doing your best.

“Leave your ego at the door every morning, and just do some truly great work. Few things will make you feel better than a job brilliantly done.”

Doing good will make you feel good.
