Stop thinking that you have to be ahead of other people

Id like to share this quote i made by myself which is what I think of before. You are thinking you are getting older and sometimes you think you haven't achieved anything yet so you think of wanting to be better or be ahead of other people. This mindset made me unhappy because you wouldn't be contented coz there will always be people ahead of you or better than you. Its much better to think to be ahead of your own self. Be a better person than yesterday. Have you had a time in your life where you thought of this?

I'm not very "rich" if I compare myself to others and it doesn't feel good at all. The other way works for me when I read it. thanks for posting here

I think there is nothing wrong to think about being ahead of others. If you think you are equipped with knowledge and experience, why not? But don't go over yourself. Just keep a low profile and help other people to excel in their fields of expertise.

I like that being in low profile. I am not a showy person so I practice myself to be humble and be simple.

If you stop living your life as a competition with others and succeed, then you are already ahead... in the only game that matters. :-)
