Stop doing backflips!
Have you ever met someone that tried way too hard to impress you? Truth is we all do it from time to time.  No matter how hard we try to impress others we will never be able to reach some kind of utopia because we do so.  We will still need God to make everything better.  Achievement without God in the picture is not really that much of an achievement.
