This is one of the biggest struggles in our lives. We are always aiming to do better and be better, but who are we comparing ourselves to? When you see athletes who win gold medals and teams with championships, do you know how much time they have sacrificed to earn those awards? When you see successful artists and CEO’s do you know what efforts they have put forth to achieve greatness? Of course not. All you know is they are successful. But you do know what you are doing and what you have done. Compare yourself to you. Are you better than you were last week? Are you exercising more than you were last month. Are you loving more than you were last year? Are you more spiritual today than you were yesterday? You are your greatest competition, your toughest critic, your best cheerleader, and your greatest key to your success. You make the difference in your life. Figure out where you want to be and what you want to do and start taking steps towards it. Pray and believe God that it will happen. Let him order your steps along the way. Most of all remember, you can never achieve someone else’s victory because it’s theirs. Be true to who you are, what you are capable of, and know your weaknesses and strengths. Compete with yourself and you will be a success every time.
