There’s not much that needs to be said – because I think the image above says it all. When you spend your time comparing yourself to your competition, your family, your friends, and your peers – you’ll likely find yourself never living up to your own expectations.

That’s because your expectations are unrealistic. You’re not always going to be as good as everyone else. You’re not always going to be the best. The fastest. The strongest. The smartest.

The path to success is an inward journey. Success is defined by your accomplishments – not on how those accomplishments compare to everyone else. Remember that as you seek to discover your own creativity, fulfillment, and happiness.
