People spend too much worrying about what other people are doing or what they have.
This unfortunate fixation has a few problematic effects. Instead of being grateful for what we accomplish, we covet what other’s have done instead. This strange part of human nature is universal, so don’t feel bad. It’s okay to get inspiration from others, but you have to follow your path in life.
Be unique and blaze your trails. Sometimes, that’s easier said than done but it’s worth the attempt. The public responds to people with unique ideas. They may not always agree, but they certainly pay attention. Discovering your unique mission propels you to greatness. Keep your motivation and apply yourself to achieve your objectives. Sages have given this advice since the beginning of time, but few heed the simple message.
Do Things Your Way for Best Results
Discover what it is that keeps your internal fire lit. Always comparing yourself to others, even industry leaders can take a toll on your confidence. There’s always going to be a few examples of “naturals” who are way ahead. The danger in using others to benchmark against is you don’t know how they got there. Most people work much harder than others think. People watching from the sidelines often believe that it’s luck that’s causing success.
Place the focus on your skill development instead. When you do that, you’re taking the steps needed to excel. The process you follow may not be exactly like anyone else’s. Your potential is unlimited. There are certain things you have more aptitude for, but you can accomplish much. Be unique and stick with your plan until you discover your rewards.
Unlocking your potential is a challenge that takes time. Hard work and intuition help guide you in the right direction. Whatever you do, do it big and in the way you choose.
