Compete With Yourself, Not With Others

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance

Don’t waste time trying to compete with other people. It is a game you can’t win. If you spend all your time worrying about having a better car than this guy at work, or being a better parent than that woman at the gym, you will always be chasing unattainable goals.

No matter how well you think you’re doing, there will always be someone with a better body, nicer hair, a bigger house, or more advanced electronic devices. That’s not to say any of those people are better than you. They just have different assets.

Don’t try to be better than everyone else. Set your own goals, and improve yourself every day

own goals, and improve yourself every day

Your main goal in life should be to make yourself into best you that you can be. Focus on yourself and your family. Do what’s best personally for your health and your career. Don’t get caught up in competing with other people. It’s a waste of valuable time.

It is okay, however, to compete with yourself. Strive to be a better person than you were yesterday. If you ran a mile yesterday, run a mile-and-a-half today.

Be encouraged by your personal growth, look at how far you’ve come from where you used to be, and keep building on it. Compete with yourself, set realistic goals, and give yourself a reasonable amount of time to achieve them. Stay true to your own wants and needs.
