How do you define Success? A friend and I were having a discussion and they asked me that question. I felt it was a fairly easy question and my response was, something to the tune of , ” Success is when you have done your best!” Which to that they said, “How do you define best?” I suddenly wasn’t feeling as confident about my answers. I should have expected this, for this friend has a way of making me think.
The response that came to me was ,” Best is when you have done your best!” Yes, that wasn’t exactly the BEST answer.
I thought more about the question and tried to figure out how I really do define success and best ? How do I know if I have done my best? What would your answer be?
I was reminded today of a scene from a movie that I really like! It is called Fighting the Giants and there is a clip in it about doing your best. I couldn’t help but think of the conversation that I had had with my friend. It is a scene in where the star Football player does a death crawl. No, this isn’t just a football movie, it really is so much more! Trust me, I am not a football fan at all! Not to offend any Football fans, but it just puts me to sleep.
Here is the clip that I am talking about. Listen to the message in it. This is just one of many positive messages in this movie. I think it is very good and hope you do as well! How is your attitude? Are you really giving it your Best?
