Inner Growth Thought of the Day: When Doing Your Best Is Or Isn’t Enough
There are many times when doing your best doesn’t satisfy the desired outcome of what you wanted to achieve, and so there’s a bit of back and forth on this “best” component and it being “good enough”.
As you pursue a journey with inner growth in the forefront, your trust in you and your best grows, and also, you learn from your “best” when that “best” doesn’t satisfy the “good enough” component.
Here are some ways to keep learning and growing from those “best” situations.
- Describe your “best” with five words. Next to each word put three situations you’ve used that “best” in and what happened in each situation.
- Every time you question your “best”, ask yourself if you’re wanting something you can achieve from yourself (from this “best” questioning) or if you’re wanting something you can’t achieve from yourself and therefore should move to exploring why you’re not accepting the situation instead of questioning your “best”.
- Make a list of times when what you did was more than “good enough” and keep those times in mind to remind yourself of how you feel when you’re giving 110%. This can help you identify when you’re not giving your “best”, which can take you a step further by getting you to explore why this is the case; or it will help you remember that you are giving your “best” and therefore have nothing to doubt or worry about.
