Look in the mirror, that's your competition

Today's post is going to be about you and you only. Let's get started by bringing in "self-reflection". As we all know, we human are creative beings by nature, we tend to think a lot, imagine a lot, but do we really look back and see what has happened in the past? I don't mean self reflection in a way that you need to always look back into the past. Just sit back and reflect upon something important to you. Let's put fitness as something important in your life, you want to look a certain way, you want to be at a certain level. That's great and all, but if you practice self reflection from time to time, you'll be able to exercise introspection upon your inner self, be willingly to learn how you are going to achieve your goals. 

This is where we bring in "your competition". 
We call it "your competition", but it should actually be you. Let's put it this way, you look up to somebody, you want your physique to be at his/her level, you want to achieve what they have. Now you have a goal, what's the next step you have in mind? It's great to have a goal but you should always compete against yourself, get better each day, better than who you were yesterday. It doesn't matter how long you take, how hard the path is, focus solely on your goal, you'll get to where you want to be. Don't be looking at someone else and thinking why do I have to go through this and he/she doesn't. Remember your purpose and essence of achieving your goals. Everyone has a different life, a different path in their own life. At certain times, it may be difficult, don't give up, you could take a rest, but you should never call it quits. "QUITTER NEVER WINS". Don't be comparing yourself against someone else, you are special in your own way, you shine under your own light, no one else has that shine that you have. Cherish your path, enjoy the process.

It's never about being better than someone else. It should always be about being better than who you were yesterday. Eventually, you will always be where you want to be.
