…life tip from Master Gallacher – be your own best in the world at everything!

…the sensible parents among you will understand that exhorting your children to be top of their school class, or best sports activities participant is the dumbest Rallying Call of every misguided father and mother on the planet… your wee Jimmys and Nellies frequently struggle just to know how to tie their shoelaces by themselves… my approach to nurturing ‘successful’ offspring is a tad different, and always has been… it is simply this, – ‘Papa does not want you to bust your guts trying to be the best in your class… neither does he expect you to set new school records for the 1000-, 500-, 250-, 0r even 5-metre races… all I ask is for you to try your honest best…’…that same tenet holds for just about everybody I have ever met… with a slight finessing of the language…

…I say, and seriously advise them, ‘be your own best in the world at everything… in your own mind, in your own attitude, in your own belief in your own skills, talent, and brains…’ …that way it is impossible to fail… I do it for myself… I am the best singer in my own world… I am the best footballer in my own world… I am the best author in my own world… I am the best guitar player in my own world… I am the best lover in my own world… I am the best blogger in my own world… I am the best poet in my own world and so on, and so on… I have never failed yet in any of these ambitions… and in my own world, no-one can refute my own belief… sound crazy?… maybe… but let me assure you, it works for me… and I’ll guarantee it works for each and every one of you, too… try it… you ARE the best at anything you do in your own world... see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

  1. I do love this post Master Gallacher and so totally agree with your nurturing and advice to your children. And to all you meet.
    I have always used the same words with my children.

    What I haven’t tried is the long list of ” I am the best ……” , I tried some now and it had me laughing happily.

  2. What fabulous advice. And you’re right – because it keeps you honest if you profoundly follow it. You turn in your best effort at whatever you’re striving for – because you’re doing the best you can, right? AND you stop beating yourself up by pointlessly comparing yourself with OTHER people, which is always the road to ruin and misery:)).
