I don’t believe in always trying to be better than others. #WriteThisDown: I focus on being better than my current self and then I repeat. Competition is great; comparing your skill set to others is great; getting those competitive juices flowing can catapult a person to a level that he or she may not have ever been on had they not measured their ability next to someone else's. But it can also backfire. It can also discourage, stress and distract a person. It can have your mind so out of sync that your focus is everywhere else outside of you. All you really need is yourself. There are no limits to how great you can be. Be your only competitor.
