Focus on Your Best

by Rachel Miller

We’re all fallible, imperfect. We err. We disappoint ourselves—and others. Reminding ourselves of this day-in-and-day-out is not working. Focusing on our inadequacies is not working. Being angry and frustrated with ourselves is not the answer. 

So, what is? How do we overcome this? How do we get better?

Consider: Instead of focusing on disappointment and frustration, focus on what is also true. What is still true despite this disappointment. What is still possible. Focus on the best you can conceive.

Continually rehashing your faults doesn’t change things. Changing your thinking changes things:

  • Remind yourself who you are when everything else is put aside. Who you are underneath what you say and do. Who you want to be, who you strive to be–your purest intention.

  • Acknowledge that quiet part of you that exists beneath the frustration and disappointment–that small part of you that still believes in your best self: your desire for good, that grounding belief that you can do whatever you set your mind to do.

  • Even if you don’t feel it or feel confident in it, just the awareness of the possibility of your best is enough. The more you focus on your potential to be your best, the more power you gain to be your best, and the faster you overcome this momentary setback to create the outcome you desire.
