In the journey of unbecoming, let go of competitive energy- know that there is enough space for everyone to be all that they dream to be. Including you. It’s about “outperforming yourself” (you vs you) and less about “outperforming others” (you vs them)
Thoughts that I’m learning to also release:
-The need to be as good as others.
-The need to have what others have.
-The need to outperform others.
-The need to be right.
I find peace in knowing that it is about being better than who I used to be (outperforming myself) in my own circumstances. Constant comparison with others steals away my peace and brings away focus from the self. There is also no end to comparison.
-We don’t compare success and achievements
-We don’t compare struggles and hardships.
-We don’t compare paths and lives.
Remember that it doesn’t have to be at the expense of others. When we focus on ourselves more, we will move a step closer towards unlocking our best “self” and eventually live up to our own fullest potential (whatever that may look like). That is enough. It’s more than enough.
