I am an emerging writer from Vancouver with numerous children's books available and several books in my new "A Better You" series.

Go Be Your Best You

Do you like who you are?

Do you like where you’re going?

Do you know how to get there?

Three tough questions. Most of us don’t think about it, we just hit play and carry on with our life. Yeah we wish we had a new car or a nicer house. Maybe we wish for a dream vacation and an early retirement. These are all great goals but they are all outside things. What about inside of you? Is there anything in you that you wish was different?

When we were young we were full of possibilities. Maybe we wanted to be a singer or a dancer. Maybe we wanted to be an astronaut or a hockey player. We had lots of dreams and they went on forever. Our imaginations ran wild with all the stuff we wanted to do and be but somewhere along the line that faded away.

Sometimes life gets in the way of living and we forget what is really important. We need to make time for self improvement and learn to dream big again.

The Burden of Life

Life is on a sliding scale of responsibility. It starts out with someone taking care of you. Then as you age you take on more and more obligations. You have to do things on your own and really it’s learned behaviour because we are all pretty lazy. Hopefully we have someone to guide us and teach us how to take care of ourselves. Then when we reach adulthood it’s time to step up to the plate and hit our own home runs, or foul balls. We are responsible for our own lives.

For me I was a happy kid. We didn’t have a lot of money growing up and I was pretty much left alone to do my own thing. Although I had lots of friends, one thing I didn’t have was a goal. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life and my parents weren’t present to help guide me. Instead I grew up and started working as a teen and never stopped.

I did have music in my life; it was something I was naturally good at. Lucky for me it took me places. It also lead me to my wife.

I’m so glad I found her because she had the exact opposite upbringing. Her parents were always inspiring and motivating her to become something more. She followed her passions and dreamed big. She taught me to look inside to see who was there. I liked who I found. She also taught me to dream big.

That’s when my life started to change. I began to dream of a better life. We built businesses, raised children and charted our own path together. I learned to truly love life.

So how do you be at your best?

  • Find your passion
  • Make a plan
  • Work hard
  • Don’t stop till you get there

It doesn’t have to be a job or outside goal. It can be self improvement. Just remember if it’s worth doing then it’s worth doing your best. Success is more than money but hey, there’s nothing wrong with a pile of cash!

Did I become rich beyond my wildest imagination?

Not yet. I am striving to do the things I love and motivated to have a better life. Money comes and money goes but finding love and passion in life is the key.

What do you want most?

Go Get It

You can have it all if you are willing to put in the time and work hard. More important is striving to be the best you can be. It could be getting your sweat on at the gym or being the greatest volunteer at your kids swim club. Whatever it is you should be proud of what you do and why you do it.

So here I am telling you to find out who you are. Get to know that incredible person on the inside. Once you find them, start making plans and work towards achieving your goals.

Whether it’s working your job or raising your kids, do your best. Whether it’s pursuing your passion or loving your mate, give it your all.

There is only one you in the world and you are amazing! No one can be better than you at being you.

So don’t just be you, Go Be Your Best You!
