Want to be free?
Why do you feel like you are competing against everyone else? You are in competition with no one other than yourself. You are running your own race. You have no need to play the game of being better than anyone in any way, shape or form. Just aim to improve – to be better than you were yesterday.
Stop running that crazy hamster wheel constantly trying to up one on the next person.
There will always be someone that can do something better than you, that’s life. Do you want to be free? If you feel you need to step your game up in a certain area, then work on being better than you were yesterday. This is the mindset that will set you free.
