Values to Live By: Give it your best
I heard this quote from a wise church leader, “We only have two things in this world…our best and 24 hours. So give your best every single day! If you can’t give it your best, then don’t do it. Never make a half-hearted commitment on any task in front of you.”
Andrew Carnegie says, “The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and will stand on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.”
Are you still giving your best at work? Are you still giving your best in your business? Is your profession a necessary drudgery or is it an inspiring motivator?
No matter how small or insignificant you may think your work is: GIVE IT YOUR BEST! It’s the one thing you can give that cannot be taken away from you.
Giving your best certainly pays off and will give you opportunities that weren’t there before. By using this principle, it places you at the top 10% where the road is never crowded.
