Your Best Ever…Every-Time
That was your…
As a leader, those words spoken to you by someone you respect is like water to a thirsty man. Not that we seek praise from men, but we all look to be encouraged in our calling.
Recently a pastor friend was telling me a story about a coach he grew up with. This coach said, “Every-time will be my best time!”
The coach explained...
“Every-time I do something, I tell myself, this will be my best-ever. That way, I feel compeled to do even better the next time. This forces me to learn, grow and get stronger for the nextÂ encounter.”
I think the coach was really on to something. When we approach every challenge, sermon, process orÂ relationshipÂ with this mind-set, This…Sermon, This…Issue, This…encounter will be meet my Best-Ever! But how do we keep such a sharp edge that can produce like that? We never stop…
I love learning new things. It keeps me sharp and opens new questions that drive me to find the answers that will make me better. I’ve found the way to that is…
Write a-lot (Blog, journal, etc. You really learn when you write!)
Nothing can fuel you like passion and love. If you really love something, it will fuel your passion to be your very best at it every time. If you ever feel your love and passionÂ waning. Step back, re-fuelÂ until the passion returns.
When those around us see our determination to always learn and love, we are leading from the most influential place. The place of showing not just telling. Where we model to those around us a life full of passion, faith and hope.
I want to be like the coach! Every-time, will be my Best-Ever! (I may print that and put it over my desk!)
Are you willing to make Every-Time your Best-time? What will be your greatest challenge?Â
