Sometimes, it is a job, career trajectory, house, car, or perceived relationship.

Comparison in our lives is inevitable.
It can be used to motivate, or you can weaponize it against yourself.

When attempting to learn a new skill, prepare yourself to be the fool on your way to being the master. Little wins every day.

Remember that you get good at what you practice. Practice intentionally and with grace.
Never just do the reps or go through the motions.
Discipline yourself to use the compounding effect of intentional practice, exercising observations and outcomes, but never judgments.
Consider your efforts over a trajectory of time. Evaluated in days but committed to in years.

Your path is yours, not anyone else’s.

When we compare ourselves to others, we almost always do so on a single plane of comparison.
Life is way more complex than that.
