We may not all agree on what a successful person looks like, but perhaps we shouldn’t be comparing with each other so often. Maybe the true measure of success is just as this quote says. If we are constantly determining our worth and accomplishments in comparison with someone else, we are doing ourselves a severe injustice.
Not everyone starts at the same place. Many are born with extreme privilege and even more are born amidst adversities. Real success should be a measurement of how far one comes from where they started. So, next time you wish you were as successful as someone else, look back and see how far you’ve come.
