This holiday weekend the beauty salons and barber shops were full of patrons getting beautiful and groomed to ensure they presented the best of themselves on Sunday morning.
All over the world people showed up with…
New dresses, new suits,
New heels, new shoes,
New purses, new jewels.
Some wearing the scent of perfumes and cologne,
So fresh and so clean from head to toe…
All the fine things done…ya’ll know…
On any special day we typically want to look and feel our best.
But…isn’t everyday a special day?
…and shouldn’t we resolve to present our best self everyday in every way?
I would say so…
However, the temptation typically is to lower the expectation for presentation when it involves how we will perform and show up for the same ole’ people we see all the time…every single day.
Because after all…they know I can step up to the plate if I need to…or at least I want to believe they do…
Please know…I would caution anyone who practices or believes this…
Because in essence you are subconsciously saying it’s ok to be mediocre today. If you’re not producing your best, you’re producing mediocrity…and it’s never okay to be mediocre!
So if we can’t be mediocre the only other option is to bring our best…everyday…in every way.
This reminds me of the famous Emil Coué’s autosuggestion formula, “Day by day, in every way, I am getting better and better.”
Everyday is special…
Everyday I should bring my best…
When I groom my body, this should remind me to groom my mind.
When I groom my mind, this should remind me to groom my life.
Because that’s the only way to look back a year from now and realize indeed…
“Day by day, in every way, I am getting better and better.”
