There are literally thousands of things which someone who is the best in their field knows, understands, has practiced, has experienced, has tolerated, has gone through, has tuned, has taken advice on, etc, etc. But there is one thing which the best in the world in anything knows absolutely.
When I reach the top, I will build a higher top
As you move up the rung ladder no matter if it is in sport, work, music, whatever you do, you move closer and closer to your goal of being the best. Let’s say you are getting better and better and you move from position 100 to 50 then from 50 into the top 10 on your journey. Of course, you were serious before, but now you really get serious. You move into the top 5 and have to start making the fine adjustments including techniques you invent yourself and mental focus. Now you get to #2 and you are aiming for #1. This is now a real challenge, but actually this is not the challenge. The hardest is moving from when you are already #1 world champion onto to #1 world champion and if you know this, you know how to be the best.
Moving from #1 to #1
Yes you have to move from #1 to #1. And it is the capability to move from #1 to #1 that will get you to #1 in the first place. It is a million things and it is nothing. I mean it is all your collected experiences, knowledge and capabilities as well as their absence with a clear and present mind in the moment gracefully combining everything into action. It is pain and pleasure at one time and you move from #1 to a better #1. A better you.
How to Be the Best
There is limitless good advice on the normal things you can and should do to become the best. Like getting a good team around you, a mentor, practicing perfectly, meditating & mind control techniques, focusing, massive action, etc.
What i suggest is that you choose one of the following:
- Either decide to know that when you get to number one, you will still be able to improve beyond #1. You will still be able to come up with one more brand new globally unique and globally powerful idea / technique / ounce of energy / moment of clarity.
- Alternately, practice and take action until you know the above in every part of your body and mind.
How do I Know if I am the Best in the World?
Would I give my absolute best current knowledge and selfless advice to my #2 competitor?
