Do not compare yourself with anyone else. The potential that you have is unique and is God given. Use your potential accordingly. Do not hate yourself with the fact that you can’t probably perform better than someone else. Never feel inferior. Inferiority makes you to hide under the table just for nothing. When you think that others can perform something better than you, then be sure that you may not achieve much.
Determination, hardwork and success requires an independent mind; a mind that doesn’t compare itself with other minds. Strong minds are not developed out of comparison, rather out of the God given potential which is cultivated daily. When you compare yourself with others, you may lose focus because you may keep on checking on them for reference. In this regard, you become enslaved with inability to think for yourself.
