Look in the mirror, that is your competition!
Seek to improve the person you were yesterday.
Don’t compare yourself to others, you are far too great for that and only you can fulfill your own journey. “A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.” Find inspiration in others and perhaps motivation, but be true to yourself and create yourself as you go. Comparison will rob you of joy and will stall progress. Focus on yourself, your abilities, your strengths, your progress and your goals.
And don’t worry about what others think. After all, it’s not their job to understand your journey, and that is okay.
I remind myself of these things because at times I’ve said “I want to look like ___!” And in all honesty that is how I started off I literally said “I want to have that body!” as I pointed out someone working out on YouTube.
What I did find is that I do not want anyone else’s body, I want my own, I want the best version of myself that I can create and work for and be proud of!
That’s where the true treasure exists, within me and not anyone else (ok, this took a turn towards The Alchemist - Great book 📖 by the way!). But it’s true! Our happiness lies within us. So seek to improve yourself based on where you were at yesterday.
It may be scary to step out of our comfort zones because of the fear of failing, but if you don’t try you have failed already. The first step is to start.
Happy Sunday! Be the best version of you. Why haven’t you joined me yet?
