Today it seems like everyone is doing something to improve themselves. Trying a new diet, joining a gym, even changing jobs. It's easy to see what someone else is doing on social media or TV and get caught up comparing yourself to them. Maybe you want to look like that model on the cover of a magazine, or be able to run a marathon like your friend just did. Maybe you just "wish you had the self-control" that others seem to have.
As hard as it is, you have to stop worrying about what they are doing and focus on yourself. I'm guilty of it too that's for sure. I've found myself comparing my life to others all the time. Some of them were friends, family members, and others, people that I don't even know. It's hard not to. But regardless of the situation, one thing is certain... Their situation doesn't determine yours. At the end of the day it doesn't really matter what they are doing. Your life, your aspirations and your success depends on YOU.
