71. Who are you competing against?
No one in this world has had exactly the same advantages, disadvantages, privileges, and challenges as you, except you.
No one in this world has had exactly the same strengths, weaknesses, skills, and talents except you.
So, the only person you want to compete against and defeat is who you were, your former self.
Comparing yourself with anyone else is stupid and a complete waste of time and energy.
Anytime something doesn't work out the way you wanted, refocus on yourself and what you can do to improve.
By doing this, not only will you maximize the chances of it working out they way you want, you will feel better, you will be happier, you will be thrilled with the person you become.
