If we compare our progress, whether it be personal, professional, relational, or spiritual, with the progress we perceive in others, our progress will be hindered.
We will get frustrated with ourselves and that frustration will slow us down.
It will block our path and it will cause us to lose our bearing.
We will begin to get sidetracked and lose focus on exactly those things that will lead to our growth.
What other people have or experience is really none of our business.
Our focus needs to be on what we can do in order to improve, grow, and facilitate positive change in the world around us.
Anything else is wasted time, energy, and attention.
