Comparing yourself to others is never a good thing.
Compare yourself to people who are doing less than you and you slow down thinking it’s ok to do less.
Compare yourself to people who are doing more than you and you start thinking that you’re not doing enough with your life and become anxious.
There’s no such thing as same or equal starting points or profiles. You’re always different. Maybe the other person knew the right people or had access to money; you don’t know and, frankly, it doesn’t matter.
Don’t compare yourself to people that make you feel ok when you fail or bad for not doing enough, it’ll make you unhappy. Look ahead, there’s only one path that matters.
