There are people who write far more books than you have, and you’ll never catch up.
There are people who read far more books than you have, and you’ll never catch up.
There are people who do ALL THE THINGS and you certainly will never catch up.
Your website has lousy traffic. Should you even bother?
That course you’re taking… You’re a few lessons behind. Time to quit?
Quitting because you’re not where everyone else has gotten to is a form of hiding. It’s your mind telling you that you’re playing it safe, except it isn’t safe. Because when you switch to something else, you’ll be behind other people there too.
Your life is not a race. It’s a journey. So what if that author has a few more books than you have. So what if that girl is reading a book a day and you can barely find time to read one a week, or even a month.
Your journey is different from theirs. Just because they’re further along where you want to be doesn’t mean that they win your journey.
It’s your journey. Not theirs.
