“If you’re doing your best, you won’t have any time to worry about failure.”
—H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
We all truly want to do our best in our work, relationships, contributions and life.
And yet that inner voice is rarely satisfied, no matter how it turns out.
Every now and then, I’m so moved by quotes, that I am compelled to share them all.
So, I offer my “best” quotes to support you being as bestful as you can with yourself today.
“Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your very best.”
“Why worry? If you’ve done the very best you can, worrying won’t make it any better.”
“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.”
“Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it’s business or baseball, or the theatre, or any field. If you don’t love what you’re doing and can’t give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You’ll be an old man before you know it.”
“Doing your best is taking the action because you love it, not because you’re expecting a reward. Most people do the exact opposite: they only take action when they expect a reward, and they don’t enjoy the action. And that’s the reason why they don’t do their best.”
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then, when you know better, do better.”
“My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.”
“It helps if you remember that everyone is doing their best from their level of consciousness.”
“I got so much out of those 2 days – I’m at a loss for words, which is rare. Thanks again to you and Alexandra for some great food for thought and for the soul. I needed that conversation and look forward to continuing it.”
—Elena V., Area Vice-President
