Every Cub Scout, no matter their age or grade in school, must first earn the rank of Bobcat. One of the requirements associated with this rank is to say and learn the Cub Scout Motto: “DO YOUR BEST!”
The Cub Scout Motto applies to every scout, no matter their age. In the Scout Oath we say that we will do our best… we even give our honor that we will give nothing but our best. “On my honor, I will do my best…”
In my daily life there are multiple tasks and challenges that put me to the test. Sometimes this involves having to work on items that I have no knowledge of and feel inadequate to complete. When these situations arise, there is really only one thing that I can do… I can do my best! In reality, that’s all I can expect from myself.
So, when the task at hand seems like it is impossible, simply do your best. Even if that means that you might fail. Get up after you fail, and do you best again and again. None of us are perfect, and some things come easier to some than to others. And that is ok! Just remember three little words that when placed together have an extremely large influence. DO YOUR BEST!
