HEY EVERYONE! HAPPY #MOTIVATIONALMONDAY!! This week’s quote is really important to always keep in mind as you aim to achieve dream, goal, or anything else in life. I really love this quote, so let’s get straight to it!!
In today’s society, with social media and one-upping it’s so easy to compare ourselves, our lives, our progress with someone else. We think that we are failing just because somebody else seems to be doing better than us. But, the thing is everybody started somewhere different and everybody is at a different point in their journey and you can’t compare your beginning to someone else’s ending. Instead, focus on yourself and how far you’ve come and be proud of your progress. Nobody else can make the changes you want in your life, so why should you let your progress be defined by what others have done? It’s simple: you shouldn’t.
Focusing on others only makes you lose focus of what’s truly important on your journey to your destination: YOU! So knowing that, choose to focus on yourself for your goals and dreams. Look in the mirror: that person staring back is your competition. Whatever you are unhappy about, don’t like, want to change about what you see in the mirror is what you are working to change and reaching for in your aspirations and goals. Realizing that you are your own competition should actually be freeing and motivating. Because you don’t have to worry about anyone or anything else or be confined by others’ rules. Instead you can constantly compete against your previous self to see true and real progress and change. Once you realize that you are your only competition, you can continue reaching to truly achieve those high goals you have set for yourself!
