How much better are you than the next guy? Sadly, most of us do think we’re better than someone else.

But belittling others is actually a reflection of your own self-image.

If it’s okay to hold the position that you are superior, then it is a natural consequence that you feel inferior to others. You can’t have one without the other!

This constant comparison game will always leave you chasing those you think are better than you in one way or another. But you’ll never catch them all! So it is a far better use of time and energy to focus on your own growth and evolution.

Action – What did you do, think or say yesterday that was not your best? How can you improve upon that today?

As the proverb states – there is nothing noble in being superior to some other man; the true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
