*This is another old post I made; June 2016 in fact. But it still rings true and I think it deserves to be shared ^^
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow men; true nobility lies in being superior to your former self – Earnest Hemingway
I love this quote so much; self-improvement is to be better than you once were. To always challenge yourself, to try new things, to never do what’s easy, that is my creed.
You will never get anywhere if you’re content with your current skills or trying to measure yourself to others success. It is only what you can accomplish that matters because you are different from the person you look up to.
I hear sometimes people ask who you wish to be and they usually pick a celebrity. But that means you as a person is dead. You become this other person because you’d never had this person’s experiences while still retaining your own identity.
You can never emulate another person’s journey to success.
