 Competing with others is a losing battle

There is nothing to gain by competing with others. You will constantly be fighting an uphill battle if you try to compete with others. You will be wasting your valuable time and resources.

When you compete with others you are actually trying to reach someone else’s goals. In doing so, you will probably also be competing in a field that you are not good at and you will always be at a disadvantage. You will be better off pursuing your own goals. Listen to a motivational keynote speaker for tips on finding your personal goals.

You should strive to be your best in along the way to achieving your goals and forget about what others are doing. Your only focus should be yourself and your loved ones.

The only one you should be competing with is yourself. If you always strive to do better you will be able to accomplish so much more and reach your goals much quicker. It will benefit you far more than trying to beat others.

You should be proud of what you have achieved. We all start from humble beginnings and are capable of achieving great things with the right attitude. All it takes is a clear life plan and hard work and patience to achieve your goal. A motivational keynote speaker can help you plan your strategy.

Chase Your Future Self

“Every day, every week, every month and every year of my life my hero is always 10 years away. I’m never going to be my hero … that’s just fine with me because that keeps me with somebody to keep on chasing.” -Matthew McConaughey

The expectations and assumptions that others have for you are numerous, diverse and impossible to achieve. And if you try, you’ll only lose yourself in the process.

You are not doing yourself a favor by competing with other people. So rather than exhausting the impossible choose instead to  compete with yourself to give you goals that make you a better person. You should try to make yourself the best version of yourself  without focusing on what others are doing.  Focus on yourself and your family. Do things that are best for your health and career. Competing with other people is a waste of your valuable time and energy.

When you compete with yourself, you’ll improve your life because you’ll work to achieve your goals and strive to be even more successful. But this is success based on your standards. Not anyone elses.

Be encouraged by what you achieve and look at how far you’ve come from where you used to be. Most importantly, keep working on it. Set realistic goals and be patient as you chase yourself in the future, because you know that things are only getting better, while at the same time realizing that perfection is impossible. What’s important is the pursuit.
