There have been lots of times in my life where I look to be like someone else.

I’ve learned, over my 19 or so years, that constantly comparing myself to others is not a sustainable practice.

I have found that the absolute best way to grow on a personal level is to focus on myself.

To double down on what I think I am good at as well as to spend lots of time on what I am not so good at.

But at the end of the day, it all comes down to me.

This tweet sums it up nicely:

Yes, it is easy to get wrapped up in the demand for attention. We, as humans, want to compete with other humans.

Very rarely, though, is that beneficial to our success. Most of the time, I have found, that comparing myself is just a distraction.

Instead ~ I am focusing on finding ways that I can improve on all levels.
