Never Claim to be The Best!

Submitted by Stephen Winters

Today I read an article on Linked In Titled "Stop Using These 16 Terms to Describe Yourself 1" This got me to thinking. Over a number of years I've heard countless businesses being advertised that they are "The Best". So, I'd like to add the following to what was said on that article.

 Never claim to be "the best!" I've repeatedly heard advertising for one business or another claiming that they are the best.
When I hear that phrase I then wonder:
  • Who set the standards for being the best?
  • What was the criteria that was used?
  • Who were the judges? What are their creditentials?
  • When and where was the competition held?
  • How can anyone claim to be the best at anything, unless there has been an in-depth and specific evaluation of ALL THE PEOPLE OR BUSINESSES by qualified experts in that specific field.
  • Then, if someone can be claimed to be the best in an area of a particular field, it is unreasonable to think that one person is better than everyone else in ALL phases of that field.
  • Claiming to be the "best" makes a person or a business sound insecure about themselves.
  • I once heard a saying "Those who claim to be the best never are."
  • Those who are highly skilled and genuine know that there are others who just as skilled.
  • Never claim to be the best, but ALWAYS DO YOU BEST!
