Don’t compare yourself to others.

The first step out of the comparison trap is to realise that there is only one you, and you take you wherever you go. As the old maxim says ‘Wherever I go, there I am.’ No one is even remotely like you in terms of your innermost feelings, thoughts and desires. If you accept this notion, then you will want to take a hard look at why you would use anyone else’s example as a reason for your doing or not doing anything.
