You should be in competition with yourself. It’s always You vs. You. Never anyone else. Don’t look at others to mark your success. Everyone’s success is different. The success you should be measuring is yours and yours alone. You are growing whether you choose to see it or not.
Even with an argument, it’s you vs. you. Most times when we see bad in others, it's something we see within ourselves that needs to be dealt with. I always say it’s always about you, but never about you.
Check yourself, because everything that happens externally is something that needs to be fixed internally. People on the outside happens to be the reflection of yourself. That is why you must be careful who you hang out with because they are a representation of you.
You are always in competition with yourself. Remember its always you vs. you. Don’t forget that.
