After six weeks of missing my exercise class, I was concerned about keeping up.
When the class started the instructor reminded us to work at our own pace and not worry about what someone else was doing. I needed this reminder.
I might not be able to keep my normal pace today, but I could still work to the best of my ability. No excuses; just do the best I can today.
On days I’m in top form, I can achieve peak performance. Other days, issues with my body or mind drag me down and I can’t accomplish as much.
It’s not always possible to be at a ten. Some days I will be at a three. Will I complain and make excuses or strive to be the best three that I can possibly be?
Even though my focus and energy level are not optimum, I can make the effort to do the most with what I have to work with.
This holds true in all areas of my life. If I live by this principle there will be no need for regret.
“Always Do Your Best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.” Don Miguel Ruiz
