Henry Ward Beecher
Are you at the top of your game? Are you doing really well, doing extraordinarily well?Maybe you’re a doctor and you’ve been recognized as the best in your field. A well respected lawyer who’s a partner in a top firm. Perhaps you’re a super stay-at-home mother and the envy of all the parents at the playground. Dreams don’t come true unless you are motivated enough to work towards your goals and strive persistently until they are accomplished. As the road to success gets tougher, most people lose heart and soon give up on their dreams, but keeping your eye on your vision and working diligently will propel you to the top where the view is much better.
But if you are doing extraordinarily well; where you have achieved that kind of recognition and success, you’re considered to be at the top of your game. As notable psychologist, author and speaker, Dr. Robin says it’s easy to become arrogant… it can go to your head, but you shouldn’t. “You don’t have to be a jerk because you are excellent; you don’t have to be a jerk because you do it better,” she says. “You don’t have to be a snob; you don’t have to act in that oh-so-powerful way if you are at the top of your game.” Dr. Robin says those really at the top of their game, in every way possible, are people who are:
- willing to share their expertise
- great role models for anyone looking to find success.
“Partner your passion, your purpose with your skill set, and you will be a winner and at the top of your game.” Dr. Robin Smith
You want to be at the top of your game? Just apply the very strong, intense emotion or desire you have inside of you to something you love to do, to your intentional or voluntary behavior of active awareness, with the ability you have to do something well, whether it arises from talent, or acquired through training. And as Dr. Robin implied, just leave out the arrogant, full of yourself attitude and add some compassion, be willing to share, and be a role model to any. You can do it… I dare you.
