"A pleasant illusion is better than a harsh reality." Christian N. Bovee
How many times have you watched someone do something and immediately thought, "I can do better than that?"
I have a better idea.
I have a better approach.
I have a better way of doing it.
Then why aren't you doing it better than the other guy? Why aren't you putting your best to the test and making something happen? Why are you sitting on your duff when you could be setting the world on fire?
Why don't you stop talking a good game and get out on the field and make something happen?
"If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be first, be different, be just." Anita Roddick
Make no mistake about it; doing something better requires 'doing.' Talking about it or thinking about it isnt going to get you anywhere close to getting it done. The only way to do something is to do it.
Talking and doing are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Anyone can talk. Anyone can blather. Anyone can toot their own horn 'till the cows come home. Doing is something altogether different. Doing requires action. It requires boldness. It requires tenacity, courage and determination. Doing requires that you do SOMETHING right now. And that can be scary.
After all, you may make a mistake. You may mess things up. You may make a fool of yourself. And who wants to do that?
If you are serious about making your dreams come true, that who needs to be you.
"Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself." William Faulkner
When it's time to put up or shut up, most folks do neither. They just keep on talking. And keep doing nothing. Since talk is cheap, cheap talk is about all that they've got. They never test their ideas. They never push their limits. And they never get very far.
You CAN do better than that!
Got a better idea, better plan; a better way of getting it done? Then what are you waiting for? You need to get busy and get to work. Give your better idea a go. Put your better plan in place. Try your better way of doing it - and get the job done.
The most successful people who have ever walked this earth were individuals who had a better way of doing something - and then did it. And so should you.
"Your legacy should be that you made it better than it was when you got it." Lee Iacocca
Theodore Roosevelt said, "It is always better to be an original than an imitation." And make no mistake about it, you are the real McCoy. You have a special gift, a special flair, a special way of doing things. You need to use your special talents for all their worth every day.
You need to plow new ground. You need to push new limits. You need to power through the fears and doubts that have held you back in the past. Today is the day try a new way, a different way, your way... and see where it goes. When you finally let go and let loose and give your ideas a real chance, you'll discover a life that is better than you thought, better than you imagined, better than you ever dreamed possible.
In fact, it's even better than that.
Power Pointer: Do your best. Then do even better. Then do it better than that!
