“If you’re doing your best, you won’t have any time to worry about failure.” — H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
We all truly want to do our best in our work, relationships, contributions and life.
And yet that inner voice is rarely satisfied, no matter how it turns out.
Every now and then, I’m so moved by quotes, that I am compelled to share them all.
So, I offer my “best” quotes to support you being as bestful as you can with yourself today.
“Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your very best.” –Andrew Carnegie
“Why worry? If you’ve done the very best you can, worrying won’t make it any better.” –Walt Disney
“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.” –Og Mandino
“Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it’s business or baseball, or the theatre, or any field. If you don’t love what you’re doing and can’t give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You’ll be an old man before you know it.” –Al Lopez
“Doing your best is taking the action because you love it, not because you’re expecting a reward. Most people do the exact opposite: they only take action when they expect a reward, and they don’t enjoy the action. And that’s the reason why they don’t do their best.” –Miguel Ruiz
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then, when you know better, do better.” –Maya Angelou
“My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” –Oprah Winfrey
“It helps if you remember that everyone is doing their best from their level of consciousness.” –Deepak Chopra
