Stop comparing yourself to other people. Success isn’t always about what you see. And what happens in your life has nothing to do with what’s happening in the life of other people. Snap out of it!

The fact that things are going well in another’s life, isn’t a good reason to doubt the achievements you’ve made. Quit measuring your success by what others have or haven’t done. Judging and comparing yourself to others isn’t fair. Such thinking halts progress and inhibits all your forward motion.

No matter how tall my dad is(and by the way he is very tall 😎), I have learned to do my growing.

You can’t build a personal destiny upon the faith or testimony of others. Your goal in life shouldn’t revolve around what others are saying. Comparison is the reaction of cowards. We have the same difficulties, what makes the difference is how we choose to handle it.

If you think you are doing better than the man next door, then it’s not necessary to blow out his light just so you can shine brighter. Don’t become an expert in living other people’s life but your own.

Happy Thanksgiving 🦃

Blessings and Love ❤️

3 Thoughts on “Success Isn’t Always About What You See; Look Deeper”

  • Thank you for this wise reminder! I have finally begun distributing songs to online musical sites including Spotify and Apple Music. And it is very easy to find statistics for other musicians (numbers of streams, numbers of followers) to compare with one’s own statistics. I need to remember to “quit measuring (my) success by what others have or haven’t done. Judging and comparing (my)self to others isn’t fair. Such thinking halts progress and inhibits all your forward motion…”

    • It sure does, Will. You’re already a success. All you need to do is “Believe”.
      We are all capable of amazing things only if we believe.

      I wish you all the best 💝🙏
