Head start

Don’t worry that someone has a head start or other advantage on you. Just let it be, and make it an even greater reason to push forward.

Instead of comparing your position or performance to others, put your energy into improving what you do. Instead of worrying about what you don’t have, make the very most of what you do have.

For what you do have is plenty. Because you can find a way to make effective and creative and productive use of it.

Some people have certain advantages, and other people have other advantages. That’s what makes life rich and interesting.

Find your own advantages and make full use of them. Even what seems to be a disadvantage can be a true advantage when you look at it from a positive perspective.

— Ralph Marston
