You’re one of a kind

Move away from the need to compare yourself to others. And you will move rapidly toward higher and higher levels of effectiveness and fulfillment.

Many of the things you see as limitations and deficiencies in your own life are not really limitations at all. They’re created in your imagination when you compare yourself to others.

Don’t waste your time focusing on what others have that you don’t have. Instead, put your time and energy into making the most of the unique and valuable knowledge, skills and resources that you do have available to you.

Don’t allow your energy to be drained away by worrying about what others will think. Simply be your authentic best, and keep in mind that what anyone else thinks about you is not your concern.

It’s great when you can learn from others, find joy in being with others, and cooperate with others to achieve mutually beneficial results. Just don’t allow your life to become bogged down by constantly comparing its details with the lives of those around you.

You are one of a kind. The more completely you celebrate and fulfill that reality, the more satisfying and rewarding life will be.
