Being Cristiano Ronaldo and living in an era of Lionel Messi make pretty much sense. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are two different players. They have come from different countries; play for different teams and in different positions. But we keep comparing both of them.
Mostly because we are the human beings highly inspired by competition. We love to compare and compete with everything. On the other hand, we have lost our eyes of seeing and analyzing things. Unfortunately, media have become significant influencer in our life. It show us how to see things and we keep seeing everything with the eyes of media.
But we shouldn’t. Media work for big people but we don’t. Media work for maximizing profit we don’t. Our life isn’t all about money, profit and revenue. Media work for creating news and stay on top of the conversation. But we are not here only to become news. And we shouldn’t learn whatever media teach us. We shouldn’t see things with the eyes of media.
Think about you. See how many times you compare yourself with others. How does competition make you insane, frustrated and sad very often? It’s not the competition it’s you. You have grown up differently. You have different set of ideas and you have the capability to be remarkable in your own ways.
Why do you forget that you are a different person? Your situation is different. No one actually knows about the struggle you face. No one knows about your hardship. No one knows how do you get things done living in the midst of hundreds of big problems. You are not here for competition. You’re not like her. You aren’t here to become an outcome of bloody competition.
Yes! You’ve gotten only one competitor of yourself! And that is YOU! Don’t compare yourself with others. Compare what you’ve done in the last year, what you are doing this year and what you will be doing next year! Focus on your own development cycle! See and measure how are you doing things. The world is full of opportunities. Be open to all. Read broadly, think broadly, engage in a wide variety of activity and do it with a learning orientation. Make things happen in far more better ways than previous year. Don’t be driven by competition. Be an example of your own self. And be an example of yourself!
