Better Than Previously




‘Look in the mirror….that’s your competition.’

We all want to be better. Do you hold yourself to the standards of other people, wishing you could be better than the next guy? Maybe this is motivating you, but an even greater skill is to just want to be better than  your previous self.

Be inspired by others, appreciate others, learn from others, but know that competing against them is a waste of time. You are in competition with one person and one person only – yourself. You are competing to be the best you can be. Aim to break your own personal records.

Think about pushing yourself to eat better, or walk further each day? Goal setting is a great way to ‘compete’ against yourself. You select the end result that you want in any concentration that you choose. Then, it is up to you, and only you, to work to achieve those goals. Thus, you will be pushing yourself towards greatness, not creating unnecessary competition against others.

Setting a goal, whether your health, finances, personal development or whatever, the only person you are truly competing with is yourself. Look in the mirror, study that person and get busy changing that person into who they need to be to achieve your goal. To win the competition…

Start today, what would you do differently if you were competing against yourself? Be better than you were yesterday.


“The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before”
Steve Young
