At one stage or another I have found myself comparing myself to others, I'm sure you have too.
The list goes on... and on... and on.
We all compare ourselves to somebody else at some stage or another - unfortunately, it is human nature to compare yourself to people around you. These days it is too easy to feel inadequate thanks to the internet.. even magazines, The comparison game is a dangerous trap!
"Comparison is the thief of joy" - Theodore Roosevelt
We need to start being happy with our own success/progress, and stop comparing ourselves to others because it is is a self destructive mindset that has no benefit.
There is one person you should compare yourself to, and that is who you were yesterday!! Can you be better than your were yesterday? The answer is always yes!
The trick to being better than yesterday is to not worry about what other people are doing, everyone is different and what works for them might not work for you. Ask yourself what goals can I set myself to improve from yesterday? Stop focusing on what you don't have and be grateful for what you do have. Lets all start focusing on what we can change rather than things that are out of our control, It is time to take responsibility put your big girl/boy pants on and start conquering your goals.
