The Right Way to Measure Success
The trick is to compete against yourself, not anyone else.
Stop comparing yourself to your friends and those around you; you’re not on the same path, and you probably don’t want the same things out of life. So why would you compare your results to theirs?
Become the best version of yourself. Compare where you are now to where you were — this is the only logical comparison you can make. Compete against yourself, and make damn sure that you’re better now than you were.
Thats the best (and only) way to measure your progress and ultimately, your success.
