We Strive To Do Our Best


None of us are absolutely perfect.  We try, and we often want to believe we are the best we can be, and yet it is almost impossible to hit the mark.  We must remember that we are not perfect every time in every way.  So what do we do? 

For me, it is striving to do my best and to keep the things I do real.  I cannot pretend to be the best.  There is always someone better and someone worse.  I just need to be the best ‘real me’ that I can.  This means I have to work in the real world to do so.

Many of us like to hide in our thoughts, where we think we are doing fantastic.  That may be true in our fantasies, we need to live in the real world. Remember, nothing lives in a pure vacuum.  If it only happens in your mind, it never really happens.

You can formulate an idea in your mind and bring it to life in the real world.  Any thought, like everything else in our world, must be shared to thrive. Without sharing, things do not get nourishment, moisture, heat, and other essentials needed to survive.

Will all ideas survive the real world? No. Thoughts are like everything else that has faced the harsh truth of natural selection.  Everything has to adapt to stay in the world.  If your ideas can adapt and overcome adversity, they may do very well an even be a marked improvement in our culture.  If they cannot, they may not survive.  The only way to know is to set them out in the real world and see what happens.

Thank you for being with me today.  I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
