Winning Wisdom: Be The Best Version of You


Topic: Be The Best Version of You [Wednesday, 26th July 2017]

Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. Galatians 6:4

One of the best things you can ever do to yourself is to come to the realization that God has created you in a totally unique way from any other person in this world. It is no news that we have over 7 billion people now on earth and that the over 7 billion people translates to over 7  billion unique, different creation of God, who are the best of God's creation in their own right. It is not also news that, just like we have more than 7 billion people in the world, we have more than 7 billion unique ideas, mindsets, wisdom, etc. With these, God has deposited in each one of us the capability to be the best we can be, individually.

Another reality we must embrace is that, while it seems that there are lots of competitions going on in the world amongst individuals, organizations, blue chip companies, etc, it is best to compete against who you were yesterday and be a better version of yourself everyday. That, like a mobile app, we are always upgrading ourselves to the latest version to be more effective and efficiently productive. That means, we need to pay attention to just ourselves and our work and get better at it, for then we will get the satisfaction and fulfillment of a job well done (Galatians 6:4).

It is natural that as we strive to be the best version of us at all times, we will climb the ladder of success. So instead of competing with others, compete with who you were yesterday, and be better than who you are today when tomorrow comes around. Focus on yourself. Not on someone else. You will be dissipating energy on the wrong persons if you focus on others and try to outdo them. Remember, this will bring comparison, and those who compare themselves with others are not wise (2 Corinthians 10:12). Be the best version of you, not someone else.

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Lord, thank You for creating me in a unique way and for making me the best. I know You have filled me with the capacity to be the best of me always and to keep improving. Help me, by Your Spirit, to always be me and focus on making me the best of me, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
