"The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before." -Steve YoungI don't know about you, but I am a chronic compare-myself-to-OTHER-people person...
"So-and-so is a much better mother than me..."
"So-and-so is a much better cook than me..."
"So-and-so is much more fashionable than me..."
"So-and-so is much more fit than me..."
Am I the only one that has this problem??? The thing is, when I constantly compare myself to OTHER people, I always seem to come up short, which makes me miserable! Then comes the thought that that I need to work harder to be as good as "so-and-so" and it's not really like I am trying to compete against them, but subconsciously I kind of am because I want to be a better person!
This quote kind of gave me an A-HA moment... I need to stop comparing myself to other people. I just need to be a little bit better today than I was yesterday. I think I can do that! That is not to say that I will not continue to be INSPIRED by the people around me. It is not to say that I won't ADMIRE the people around me for their many talents... but I guess what I am saying is my journey... my goals... my life have to be about being the best me.
