This is an interesting statement because it’s not entirely focused on your best efforts, but rather on the comparison of your best efforts to someone else.

In this case it should read – “Is your Best Not Good Enough when Compared to everyone else?” – to which we would all immediately reply – “Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, I’m not comparing myself to everyone else, I’m my own person, I do my own thing, I don’t compare myself to others”.

And yet we do, all the time, because it’s a simple task of glancing over, seeing what someone else is doing and looking back at what we’re doing.

We’ve been doing it since we were in Kindergarten, making pasta necklaces and someone decided to take the yellow and green and make blue – GENIUS you said – my best wasn’t good enough.

Whoever your teacher was let you believe that and off you went destined to compare yourself to others for the rest of your life.

In the end, no one can tell you whether your best wasn’t good enough, only you can – through the late nights, the sweat, the tears, the cuts, the stress, the aches, the pains, all of it.

Only you know the answer to this question and you need to stop asking everyone else.
