Always Do Your Best With What You Have

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”- Arthur Ashe

If your best is not enough, ask for more. Yes, ask for more. Go the extra mile. Because the more you ask for, the more you will get. I am not saying you should take on more than you can do. That is not my point.

Doing your best with what you have means you know what you can do, where you are, what you have, and where you are going. It also means that you recognize your weaknesses, but you don’t focus on them. Instead, you focus on using your strengths to change your life, to give your best, to be your best, to love, to connect with your passion, and to just be you.

If you have given your best, then expect the best. You get what you expect, but not without doing your own part. Don’t wait without action, wait with action. Because action cures fear, laziness, and procrastination. Act!
