There is someone better than you.

Usually lots of them. Lots better.

It's an (edgy) reality of life.

You can't be the best at everything.  You can't even always be the best at the one things that you really want to be the best at. 

Sorry.  That's just how it is.

Face it. There is always someone better than you.... at something.

And better at amazing things.  Things that blow your mind.

Here are just a few ways:

You will never be able to draw a free-hand circle better than Alexander Overwijk.

You will never be able recite hundreds of digits of pi while hula-hooping while putting a Rubik's Cube back together.

What do you think?

Are you better at any of these things?

Do you have the capacity (deep within you) to ever be better at any of these things?

Think with me for a minute.

Do you?

Could you be better if you really wanted it?

And the answer is simple:

YES.

You could be better if you really wanted to be.

Whatever you want to be.  Whatever you believe you are.  Whatever you really want for you, you will achieve.

And so the real question is not "who is better than you", but rather "what do you really want for you".

Because when you know...  you are unstoppable.

You are a better "you".

And that is an accomplishment at which no one can ever best you -- no matter how hard they try.
