Are you the best you can be?

Treat a person as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat a person as if he were where he could be and should be, and he will become what he could be and should be. - Jimmy Johnson
I always want others to push me to my limits and beyond. I've been told by people they see something is going to be great and they never question that I'll succeed in life. Well I want them to push me there and treat me like the person they know I can and should be.

As individuals we can only see ourselves as far as we believe in ourselves. Most times our perception of our abilities falls way short of the true potential we have inside of us. We are all great in some way or form. We all have dreams of where we want to be. We all have the skills to get us there. But do we all have the drive to get there?

We should never sell ourselves short of what we "can be"

Too many people take criticism personally and feel it's like an attack on them. When in truth it's a learning experience that we should grow from. Every time somebody tells you that you are doing something wrong, how to do it better, to do something different, what to change, how to change, or anything that points out our mistakes. We need to take that with a positive spin and use it to better ourselves.

We can only become better by changing, and we can only change through the eyes of others.

I've been getting beat up for years on how I do things and how I am. It took me a long time to remove the emotion and just learn that life is like school. You study, do a test, get a grade. If the grade sucks then you fix what you did wrong and do better. If the grade is great then you get to move on to even harder things. If you can learn to treat life that way and see your criticizers as your teachers then there are no limits on where you can go.
