“Spending too much time focused on others' strengths leaves us feeling weak. Focusing on our own strengths is what, in fact, makes us strong.”--Simon Sinek
One of the habits that most of us have is to compare ourselves with others. Initially it starts with, for inspiration or general reference, eventually it becomes envy and self-pity. Funny of this habit is we used to compare with similar level people only like friends, colleagues or neighbors.Poor compares only against his poor friend, not against the richest person whom he knows.!!
The process of comparison goes like this. We start comparing with others on skill sets, competency, possession etc, start amazing and then eventually looking at self, finding the gap, start feeling as inferior, becoming self pity and weak.When we multiply this comparison habit with so many people, eventually we will become conclude that “ I do not have any positive qualities or skill set or competency and I am not deserving for greatness”.
In this process, we almost forget to look within ourselves and identify our uniqueness. When we look into the design of our creation, it reveals that you are unique in the entire creatures, no one lived like you earlier, and no one will come like you in the future. It is a fact that thumb impression is unique for each person. If we understand this truth from nature, no point in comparing ourselves with others and forgetting our uniqueness.
Bringing this awareness into our thought process is difficult since we are brought up amidst of negativity, but again it is our choice to become strong! Hence, Start looks within you, identify your strength, good qualities, leverage for your growth and You attract good things in life!
