“Being the best” and “doing your best” are entirely different. Sometimes, being the best doesn’t require doing your best, and for those who got it so easy that they can be the best with less effort, GOD bless you. For many of us, things don’t come that easily.
Things never came easily for me, but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t improve quickly at what I did. I believe this, “what you put into it, you get out of it” and the more that you “do your very best”, the better chance you have at “being the very best”. Doing your best helps you improve in many aspects and it makes you a better, stronger person.
Sometimes our peers expect us to be “the best”, that’s a lot of pressure and most of the time, can be almost impossible. But, as long as you know, inside your soul, that you gave “your best”, then you can’t ask for more than that from yourself and neither can anyone else ask more than that from you.
Regardless of whether you ever hold the title of being the best, you will always be a champion if you know you’ve done your best.
