Aug 7, 2017 - Is your best not enough? Are you seeking to achieve a certain accolade, recognition or acknowledgment, and believe you are giving it your all, and yet still seem to be falling short? Are you beginning to doubt you will ever realize that ultimate reward? Perhaps you need to reassess why you are doing what you are doing in the first place. If it is to make someone happy, prove you are worthy or to somehow validate you are successful, then are you really focused on the right things?
Take an MM&I Moment to fully embrace why this accolade, recognition or acknowledgment is so important to you. Then consider what you ultimately hope is the outcome for yourself through achieving this desire, beyond the initial kudo or incentive. How will it make your life better? How will it enhance who you are and what you are currently doing? How will it take what you hope to achieve to another level of satisfaction? Based on these answers, fall in love with the idea of the reward coming from deep within you, and you may just be amazed at how rewarding doing your best can be with each action you take.
