Comparison is a natural part of human cognition. It allows us to assess things we identify with and determine what decisions to make about them. However, too much comparison can trap you.
If you always get stuck trying to make decisions, do you ever make progress? How about when you compare yourself to another man "that's doing better or worse than you," what happens?
In some cases, we feel better about ourselves. In other cases, we can feel self-doubts or subconscious defeat.
It's a double-edged sword.
When you compare yourself to other people, you typically find reasons why you are or are not aren't something.
In these moments, bring your awareness back to yourself. Realize your journey of life is unique and who you are becoming is the only thing that matters. The only man you should compare yourself to is YOU.
Every day you live, make it a point to level up. Not because of what others will think of you but what you know about yourself.
