We must resist the urge to focus our eyes on 'the other guy,' for comparison is like a thief in the night. It may seem innocent, but it will rob you of energy needed to sustain the race, it will drain your fuel, it will distract you, frighten you and eventually cripple you. There is plenty of room for everyone's completed mission.
You are going to be subjected to comparison. You are going to be "sized up." You are going to be criticized, scrutinized, discounted and dissected. But you know what? So what! You are going to be slapped in the face with humble pie, surrounded by passersby who will expect you to devour every unfortunate crumb.
I'm writing this article with one purpose: to get you from wherever you are now, to wherever you know you should be. I should warn you that this article is probably different than any other you have read on this topic because of my obsession with keepin' it all the way real. It's the only way I know how to be.
