🌐 Don’t focus on being the best. Focus on being better.
The world is filled with so many talented individuals.
🌐 You will always encounter someone better than you.
Someone more skilled. Or more successful.
😥 But comparison will never bring you joy—only heartache.
Instead focus on being a better version of yourself.
🔆 Better than yesterday.
I shifted my attitude away from being the best in my field or job and the following happened:
🎯 I experienced greater peace.
🎯 Met amazing people to collaborate with on writing projects.
🎯 Increased level of empathy— instead of seeing other people as competition I saw them as human.
🎯 Joy at sharing in others’ successes.
When you see people as people and as partners to build something better you find joy.
🎯 Increased motivation to learn. Shifting away from being the best didn’t lead me towards mediocrity.
I am still aiming to learn as much as I can daily.
Now I am willing AND excited to share my knowledge.
❓How have you learned to be a better version of yourself in 2020?
❓Do you think it’s better to focus on competition or collaboration?
