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?

Create a Positivity Arsenal to Fight Negativity

Positive thinking

💡Positivity tip—Create a positivity archive or arsenal to utilize on your worst days.

Negativity on social media is everywhere. It’s easy to get sucked into the storm.

🔷 Reading comments of a gossipy thread.

🔶 Trolls posting hurtful things about you.

🔷 Falling victim to comparing yourself to others.

The list goes on and on.

Because negativity sticks in our mind longer we need to battle it with more positive things.Our Enemy enjoys bringing us down with negativity. It is important to know you can fight back. Kindness kills cruelty.

Here are a few ways I collect things for my positivity email folder 📁 archive/arsenal:

🔆 Save thank you emails from clients, customers, friends, or family.

🔆 Screenshot positive comments where a person compliments you & email to yourself.

🔆 Keep inspirational quotes—authors such as Maya Angelou, Simon Sinek, & C.S. Lewis provide me keen insights.

🔆 Copy/paste an uplifting DM you received.

🔆 Include humor—send yourself funny and witty memes, pictures, gifs, or videos.

My wife always sends me memes from our favorite television show—The Office—to get me to laugh during a tough day.
