Comparing is pointless.

When we compare, we typically take the strengths of others and put it against our weaknesses.

Even if we eventually get better in one area, there’s something else to improve on.

It’s a never-ending game.

Instead, focus on how you can beat yesterday. That is, your yesterday, not someone else’s.

Focus on what you can improve internally, not externally.

The more you do what truly satisfies you, the less likely you are to compare.

You can be anything, but you can’t be everything.
