"Winners compare their achievements with their goals, while losers compare their achievements with those of other people."
Most of us have a tendency to compare ourselves to others. We compare what we have and don't have to what others have obtained. We compare what we have accomplished or failed to achieve to the heights reached by others. And we compare where we are in life as it relates to those around us.
And then we compare some more.
Why do we constantly critique, compare and contrast what we're doing with what others are doing? Maybe it's our competitiveness, maybe it's just sheer jealousy. In any event, it really doesn't matter what other people have done, obtained or achieved in their lifetimes.
There's only one thing that counts. And that's what we do with what we have.
"Enjoy your own life without comparing it with that of another."
Marquis de Condorcet
Each of us is distinctively different, a one-of-a-kind original unlike anyone else on earth. Possessing independent strengths and interests, we bring an incomparable set of skills, talents and gifts to the table.
We have skills that others do not have. We hold talents that others cannot replicate. And we possess gifts that are uniquely ours. So why should we waste one minute comparing ourselves to someone completely differently from ourselves? The easy answer: we shouldn't.
"Be yourself. The world worships the original."
Like comparing apples to oranges, constantly comparing yourself to anyone else is a big waste of time. Not just a waste of time, but a huge, massive, stupendous waste of your time. Forget about all of this comparison stuff.
Just be yourself!
You have things you like and things you dislike. And there are things you are good at doing and some you're not so good at. It's the sum of all of these things that make you who you are, that separate you from the rest of the crowd.
"If you're able to be yourself, then you have no competition."
Rather than worrying about what everyone else is doing, why not focus your full attention on being the best you were put on earth to be? By giving everything you've got, passionately pursuing those things you're good at and absolutely love to do, you're not only going to achieve some pretty amazing things, you're also going to have the time of your life as well.
Please remember that nobody, no one else in the entire world, can do a better job of being you than you. Don't give a second thought to what others are doing; just do what you want to do, need to do, were born to do - and do it with all of your heart and soul.
Oh, and one last thing here. Never forget that you've got something unique, something distinctive, and something truly special to offer the rest of the world; something well beyond compare.
And that super sensational something is YOU.
The Bottom Line: When you give your very best every day, you've given way more than enough.
