4. Compare yourself not to other people but to who you were yesterday.
People are never equal in their abilities. A disproportionately small number of people possess vast wealth, status, and fame. There’s always going to be someone better than you in some way, but this doesn’t mean you resign yourself to the default feeling of worthlessness. You can’t be better than everyone else, but you can always be better than the person you were yesterday.
It’s naïve to view yourself and the world through a binary system of success and failure. The world is complex and multifaceted; you can’t be an all-out winner or a chronic failure. You win in areas that match your strengths and talents and slip in those that don’t. If you are winning at everything, it means you are stuck in the present, in what is familiar and comfortable. It means you are not growing.
