Don’t compare yourself to others

We live in a society today where everyone is looking over everybody else’s shoulder. This is a big do not! I remember one time I was in a room in which the position I placed myself, encouraged me to keep raising my head to look at who comes in the door. After some time I realised that I should move and stop looking at people coming in. Why? Every time I look up at someone else, I stop myself from growing in what I am doing. Imagine all the seconds I wasted watching other people, those seconds add up to minutes and minutes to hours. You watch TV all day and those hours add up. They are entertaining but what are they doing for the growth of your success? Every time you criticise someone else, those are criticisms for yourself you’re wasting on another. 

No one lives your life and you don’t live anyone else’s life, why compare? No one has had your personal struggles personally, no one has had your personal strife personally but you still find time to compare yourself to others. You’re not completely to blame because many of us are raised to compare oneself with peers. We learn this in schools, we learn this in the work place. pretty much everywhere we go, people are trying to compare us to A-Z. This is the first thing you need to do, realise you can only be the best you and no one else. secondly you need to stop comparing yourself with people your age or from your situation. Start comparing yourself against yourself. Look to be better than yourself every day and soon the better you will be much greater than you ever expected. If you put two times more effort than yesterday, your growth will grow exponentially. If you are doubling in effort, energy, investment in self, character, mentality, you will get to the point where what you are doing currently will be seen as nothing.

Start by waking up on time, set an alarm clock, even better is going to bed earlier than you have been in most cases. Your alarm is the backup not the foundation. Start planning your day, if not the day before, do it in the morning. Work through your plan every day and don’t start new work until you’ve completed previous tasks. Instead of listening to garbage all day, listen to something uplifting, something motivational, something educational.
