Comparing yourself with others is a distraction to getting what you want, because each and every one person’s journey is unique and fueled by different purposes, meanings and objectives. Comparing as though it is apple to apple, when it really is not, only brings you down. All the jealousy, guilt, shame and fear that comes along with the unparalleled comparisons are a huge time and emotional waste. 

Instead of comparing, try learning from each other. Acknowledge, accept and celebrate your journey’s differences and focus on making improvements that matter.
