Be the Best at One Thing
It doesn’t matter what that one thing is, just be the best.
You might be doing the math in your head and thinking, “Hmm, if there are 7 billion people on earth, what could I be the best in?” Wrong math. Think of the inverse. Forget the other 6,999,999,999 other people and think about what you might be best in. In fact, forget any kind of competition at all. What is your best? What could you give your best? What will you give your best to? Here’s again another perspective: what can you not not give your best to? What’s automatic? What do you do for pleasure?
If it happens to be something you can be paid for, great. But it doesn’t matter.
TIP: if it’s something you love, it’s going to make it a whole lot easier.
It’s going to make it a whole lot easier because there’s an Every Single Day-style practice ahead and it better be fun or it’s not going to be … fun.
It might seem daunting at first to watch the greatest do what you’re trying to do, but just keep in mind that at one point they were starting out just like you are. My 9-year old loves his Kendama and then we watched the video below. Was he intimidated or inspired? Maybe a bit of both. Good.
I don’t even know what this is. But they’re really, really good at it.
