Why You Need to be Better Not the Best

🌐 Don’t focus on being the best. Focus on being better.

The world is filled with so many talented individuals.

🌐 You will always encounter someone better than you.

Someone more skilled. Or more successful.

😥 But comparison will never bring you joy—only heartache.

Instead focus on being a better version of yourself.

🔆 Better than yesterday.

I shifted my attitude away from being the best in my field or job and the following happened:

🎯 I experienced greater peace.

🎯 Met amazing people to collaborate with on writing projects.

🎯 Increased level of empathy— instead of seeing other people as competition I saw them as human.

🎯 Joy at sharing in others’ successes.

When you see people as people and as partners to build something better you find joy.

🎯 Increased motivation to learn. Shifting away from being the best didn’t lead me towards mediocrity.

I am still aiming to learn as much as I can daily.

Now I am willing AND excited to share my knowledge.

❓How have you learned to be a better version of yourself in 2020?

❓Do you think it’s better to focus on competition or collaboration?
