Yesterday, I saw a commercial for bottled water. In that commercial, they said that ‘better’ is what drives us. ‘Better’ is what’s inside. I’m sure they were talking about THEIR product being better than other bottled water products, but it made me think….and that’s a scary concept.
What does drive us to be better? And what exactly does ‘better’ mean? In order to be better, you must have a baseline. You can’t be better if you haven’t already been something, right?
As the picture in today’s post says, be better than you were yesterday. Again, a very simple concept. There is always room for improvement, but sometimes people get lost in the enormity of it all. In doing so, they get overwhelmed and end up giving up trying to succeed.
But if you just take it one day at a time, then incrementally you make the changes come to fruition. Don’t be disappointed if you’re not the best ever. Just be the best you can be. You don’t have to be twice as good as you were yesterday, just try to be a little better than you were. The scale begins with you and your expectations. Don’t expect too much, just expect what’s achievable.
Getting better each day, accomplishing small goals each day, will lead you to a happy and more fulfilled life. Try it and you’ll see.
