We can unleash our potential to the fullest only when we stop comparing ourselves to other people. Everyone is unique. So I guess it’s wise to spend less time and energy comparing ourselves to others. It’s better to invest that time and energy into self-development. Why to be “next someone” when you can be just yourself. Seth Godin and all those people made name for themselves first of all because they were different and they didn’t give up when it was hard. You don’t have to be better than someone, you have to strive to be better today than you were yesterday. Comparing yourself to others is like poison and the best antidote is to remember that you also have talents and strengths — all you need is to discover and develop them.
