Good Morning: To Get the Best, You Must Give Your Best

“You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself.”
What a simple and true wisdom today’s quote holds.  Often when we get frustrated with someone in our life, whether it be a colleague, a friend or a family member, we begin focusing on “what’s wrong,” or use it as an excuse not to go the extra mile.
However, like attracts like, and when we behave like this we then
attract “half-hearted efforts” from those around us. The cycle
continues until we find ourselves with a weight on our shoulders
and a heaviness in our hearts.
When we give the best of ourselves, regardless of anyone’s
behavior, we enjoy a richer life. Likewise, we set an example for
our children, friends and all we come into contact with. We
encourage others to be at their best. When we live by the creed of
always doing and giving our best, we know a personal peace that
can’t be found through any quick-fix method. We know a personal
peace that is lasting.
Your Turn:
Take a moment today to release any negativity you have been holding toward another person. Take the energy you have been focusing on their behavior, and redirect it to focus on doing and giving your best.
Your Affirmation:
I focus all of my energies on what is productive, helpful and makes
a difference.
