Instead of allowing yourself to make absurd of destructive comparisons try choosing legitimate comparisons, the ones capable of giving you insights on how to improve yourself.
Be obsessed about the change you want to make and compare yourself to others that are on the same path as you are. They’ll motivate you to get better.
Observe others who are better than you and figure out what is it that you may be missing. Find the little trick, the small detail or the big accessible change you can make investigating others clues behind their successes. But be careful not to confuse your goals with theirs. You’re only learning through their way but to reach your own destination.
Through legitimate comparisons you can find powerful fuel to help you reach your own goals.
