Many people want to be the best. The problem with striving to be the best is it’s relative to others. You can be the best of a weak group and still be weak. Or, you can try to be the best but be competing with a true superstar and end up feeling like a failure.
Rather than trying to be the best (and being able to say “we are number 1”), why not try to be the best you can be? If you strive to be the best you can be, and really work to accomplish this as a goal, you will be successful (based on what you are trying to accomplish).
Compare yourself to your capabilities and not to others and you might be surprised by what you can accomplish
Just something to think about.
Have a great day!
