You are your only competition!

Stop comparing yourself to other people it does nothing for yourself esteem!
I do believe in healthy comparison, but what we tend to do more often is compare ourselves to other people, and it can make us feel like we're missing out or simply not doing enough.
Comparing ourselves to other people can often create feelings of anxiety, failure, depression and sometimes jealousy. None of us enjoy feeling this way.
Every time you go to compare yourself to someone else I want you to imagine yourself going to the gym and sitting down. Whilst you watch everyone else around you work on themselves. She's over there working on her abs, he's over there working on his cardio whilst there over there doing it for the gram...and your just sitting down in your head thinking that you can't participate.... Now I want to imagine yourself standing up and going to work on your personal fitness, because that is why you went to the gym in the first place right, to work on yourself.
Same applies to life everyone has there own missions and assignments to work on. We all have our own individual success rates and failures (People never seem to upload there failures to the gram). It might look like someone 'came up overnight' but the truth is you have no idea what they've been through (or going through) in order to get to where they are now.
If you do look at other people let it be for inspiration! Be inspired!
I love being inspired by successful people because it motivates me to keep going.
I'm all about self development, I want you to work on yourself every single day,
Even if it's just for 10 minutes, let it be 10 minutes of positive thinking, 10 minutes of meditation, or 10 minutes of reading a good self help book. Because the truth is your life gets better, when you decided to take charge!
Remember time spent comparing yourself to other people could be time spent working on yourself.
