Who are you competing against?
As you move along and live each day to its fullest, who are you competing against? We are all competitive individuals, it is in mother nature. The question lies in who you are competing against? Ask yourself this question? If you can come up with an answer other than yourself, it is time to re-evaluate your goals, your reasons and what is driving you. If you are working towards being better than someone else or have that competitive spunk in you to prove something to someone, stop right there. It is important to have that inner motivation to want to be better and work for more but the underlying motivator should be to be better than yourself. The only competition in life is the competition with yourself. Rather than looking to someone else or trying to find a way to be better than that person, hold yourself to your own high standards. Do something today that makes you better than you were yesterday. It could be as simple as a few extra minutes of cardio or making a better food choice. You are the one that has control and it is up to you and only you! Nobody else has control over you but you! You cannot control someone else or their decisions so don’t waist your energy trying to compare and compete. Push yourself and keep your goals as your focus without the distractions of others because the only competition is YOU!
