1. Stop Comparing Yourself to Other People

Everyone has unique strengths, talents and life experiences. There will always be someone better, richer, and more accomplished but you don’t need to waste your energy resenting them. The only person you should compare yourself to is the person you were yesterday.

3. Develop an Awareness of Your Stereotypes

3. Develop an Awareness of Your Stereotypes

It’s easy to make assumptions about successful people. But just because someone is rich, famous, or business-savvy doesn’t mean he used unsavory methods to get there.

Be aware of the types of assumptions you make about people who are better off than you are. Focus on getting to know them as individuals before you draw sweeping generalizations.

4. Stop Emphasizing Your Weaknesses

4. Stop Emphasizing Your Weaknesses

Sometimes it’s easy to focus on your weaknesses and other people’s strengths. But thinking that way will only cause you to become envious, and perhaps hopeless.

Be willing to acknowledge things you could improve upon, but don’t magnify your shortcomings. Practice self-compassion and strive to do your best.

5. Quit Trying to Determine What’s Fair

5. Quit Trying to Determine What’s Fair

Sometimes, people have more luck than others. It’s a fact of life. But focusing on what’s fair or who is most deserving isn’t a productive use of your time.

In fact, complaining about fairness can leave you feeling bitter. And those feelings of bitterness can become a huge stumbling block that will sabotage your efforts to reach your greatest potential.

6. Create Your Own Definition of Success

6. Create Your Own Definition of Success

Remember that just because someone else has what you want, doesn’t mean you can’t have it too. Create your own definition of success and you’ll be less threatened by people who are striving to reach their goals.

Keep your eyes on your own path. Every minute you spend thinking about other people reaching their dreams is a minute you didn’t spend working on achieving your own.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
