Be the Best Version of Yourself

You never know how far you can go until you go for it. T.S. Eliot


We’re in the midst of a major societal shift. On nearly every front, our lives are being dominated by a tsunami of disrupting forces of information overload, fake news, encroaching data, artificial intelligence and biotechnology advances; unimaginable only a few short years ago. Distances have collapsed and our smartphones have made global villagers of us all.

And if  this weren’t enough, there is the pandemic.

The times are demanding, to be sure, but in spite of the prevailing negative opinion of many, we will get through this period. It’s what humans do.

For the inquisitive, the curious, the imaginative and the courageous, a new order beckons, promising exciting advances in every field.

Even those at the top of their game are pausing, examining their options, looking for ways not just to do more but to be more. They are determined to live more authentically at a moment in time when authenticity, straight talk and truth are in short supply.

I’m reminded of the words of Saul Bellow, who wrote, “if you think that historical forces are sending everybody straight to hell you can either go resignedly with the procession or hold out, and hold not from pride or other personal motives, but from admiration and love for human abilities and powers which, without exaggeration, the words ‘miracle’ and ‘sublimity’ can be applied.”

We see life not as it is, but as we allow ourselves to see it. And if ever there was a time to take a fresh look at ‘everything,’ it’s now. Whether you are looking for new ways to improve your present condition or are, perhaps, in transition, one of hardest things in life is to know which new bridge to cross and which to burn down behind you. What makes the selection easier, though, is your level of enthusiasm and unfailing belief in yourself. Keep it going… while being the best version of yourself you can be.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.

I hope to see you again soon.
