Grow within your own potential
It’s always easier for us to think ‘oh this person is doing better than me’ than to focus on what we could be doing to better our situation, and what we fail to realise is that everyone else’s best is not the same as our best.
It is up to you grow within your own potential and keep in mind that everyone is different and although some of us have similar paths, there are no two exact paths.
How do you grow within your own potential?
You start to focus on your qualities.
We have to start putting an obsessive like focus on our strengths and stop focusing on our weaknesses and we start building the person we want to be, starting within and then focusing on the outer layer, which includes our careers, home life, social interactions etc.
We become so busy improving ourselves that we don’t have time to compare.
