Don’t try to be better than the rest

You can stand tall without standing on someone. You can be a victor without having victims.

Harriet Woods

Life is not always a race against other people. What should matter to you is self-improvement. Ask yourself every day: Am I a better man than I was yesterday? If you can answer with yes, you are doing all right, no matter how slow the speed or how gloriously awesome other people may be. If the answer is no on the other hand you should try to improve, take your eyes of the others and just focus on your tasks at hand.

You would be suprised how far it gets you to just stop comparing yourself to others but just trying to get gradually better at what you love.
