“When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everyone will respect you.”

Modern life is a cacophony of competition and comparisons. We don’t value our own worth unless we know how it compares to others. And we only feel good if we know we are better or have accomplished more than others.

But how detrimental is this attitude? When you’re worrying about what others think of you, how your life compares to others and how you can be better than someone else, you’re wasting a precious commodity: time.

And it’s important to realize too that the only person you’re hurting with this type of thinking is you. But when you avoid competition and comparisons, you can be free to be you. You can set your own benchmarks, goals and targets. And your happiness will be completely reliant on internal sources, not external.
