Stop worrying about how well you think other people are doing compared to you.
Because: 1. It doesn’t matter.
What matters is that you are taking action to do and be better at whatever it is you have chosen for yourself.
And 2. What you see in others and their so-called “success” is rarely the whole story.
Other people may succeed — and a few people even get “lucky” — but what you rarely ever see is how much they struggled along the way. You rarely see their hardships or their failures.
“The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.” — Steve Furtick
Remember, we are not copies of each other. Your life is yours. It will never be a mirror image of anyone else’s.
We all have our own unique stories, unique challenges, and unique paths to walk.
And as similar as some portions of those paths may be, they will never be the same.
So yes, use other people for inspiration and motivation, but don’t ever let the apparent success of others discourage you from walking your chosen path.
Because it’s not their path you’re walking. It’s yours.
So do your thing.
- There will always be someone better at something than you are
- Making progress is more important than making excuses
- Every little step you take towards a goal, no matter how small, is progress.
- That doesn’t count.
- You were meant for greatness.
- Not everyone will understand your journey.
