Set Your Own Standards
It's time we stop judging ourselves compared to what others are doing. I did this for years, and it made me very dissatisfied with myself. I was never content with who I was or what I was doing. I came across this David Goggins quote and I loved it!
"I set my own standards. I started to reinvent the wheel for myself. I didn't follow the crowd. I did what I had to do to get where I had to go, and in doing that, that's where true growth is.
It's okay not be exactly like everyone else. It's okay to NOT follow the crowd. Don't worry about what everybody else is doing, worry about what you're doing. Focus on what you're doing. Because everybody else out there judging you, they also have problems themselves. That's what I realized myself, I stopped comparing myself to everybody else, and I just compared myself to me. I'm my own hero"
