Doing Your Personal Best for the Next 30 Days Would Mean What for You?

In the movie Facing the Giants , a young high school student on a football team learns that his biggest obstacle is not the opposing team, but rather his own thoughts that are limiting his best performance. So what limiting thinking are keeping you from doing your personal best if you really want to master success?

A college and I were discussing this very question several months ago. Imagine what would happen if:

  • Each junior high person did her or his own personal best for the next 30 days?
  • Each high school student did her or his own personal best for the next 30 days?
  • Each teacher person did her or his own personal best for the next 30 days?
  • Each administrator did her or his own personal best for the next 30 days?
  • Each parent did her or his own personal best for the next 30 days?
  • Each small business owner did her or his own personal best for the next 30 days?
  • Each corporate executive did her or his own personal best for the next 30 days?
  • Each professional sales person did her or his own personal best for the next 30 days?
  • Each member of the work did her or his own personal best for the next 30 days?
  • Each government official did her or his own personal best for the next 30 days?

What would our country look like in just 30 days? Given that research supports that most people use anywhere from 10% to 25% of their potential, the results of giving your personal best would be exponential.

Did you know that Einstein said on several occasions he felt he only had used 10% of his potential? Imagine that, the inventor of E = MC squared, theorist of black holes and nuclear fusion believed he had only tapped into 10% of his potential.

Giving your personal best for 8 hours every day for the next 30 days is not easy as the young football player discovered. However, the incredible power when you see what your personal best means for you can never be really captured by mere words. The knowing that you are doing your personal best translates directly into your own self worth and allowing you to begin to master success.

Again, I ask you: What would happen to you if youave your personal personal best (and you and only you know what that means) for the next 30 days? If you decide to take this challenge, make sure you share it with someone to hold you accountable.
