Competition is the comparison of one thing to another. It's a pervasive mindset, and it's not always helpful.
It can be helpful to compare yourself to others, but only when you're comparing your progress toward your goals or trying to learn from them. The problem with comparing yourself to other people is that it often leads to feeling like you're not enough.
The truth is that everyone has their own journey in life, and no one can tell what yours will look like until you've walked through it. When you compare yourself to someone else, remember that they've had different experiences than you—and those experiences may have shaped their personality and life choices in ways that are not accessible to you right now.
When we compare ourselves with others, we're really defining ourselves by how we stack up against others. The problem with this kind of definition is that it doesn't allow us to grow into our own potential—it just makes us feel frustrated because we don't measure up! If you want more out of life but feel like something is holding you back, ask yourself: "What do I need in order for me to succeed?"
