Make your best even better

It doesn’t matter how well or how poorly you are received. What matters is that you give your best.

Your ego may not like it when you are criticized, or worse, when no one even notices you. Yet there is a part of you that can find great value in every kind of feedback.

Rather than being upset or giddy about any response you get, raise your focus to a higher level. Be curious.

The surest way to learn is to do. That’s especially true when it comes to learning how others will respond to you.

Life at its highest level is about giving of your most authentic, original self. And that’s an exercise where continual practice leads to rapid improvement.

Give your best, and see what happens. Based on that, you’ll figure out how to continue making your best even better.

— Ralph Marston
