Competition is a big part of human nature. For some more than others. It’s in our nature to compare and judge.
Everyone has their own gauge for success that has usually been conditioned by various factors; school, work, TV etc. However, it doesn’t have to be this way and Brian Kim understands this when he writes, “Don’t think hierarchy, Think journey”.
If you keep focusing on everyone else’s journey, you’re going to stop paying quality attention to your own. What I mean by quality attention is attention free from jealousy, worry, envy, strife, etc., – just a calm, objective look at your own journey that can provide answers to help move you forward or to even determine what that journey should be in the first place.
Referring to people’s lives as a ‘journey’ can sound a little hooey-phooey, but the idea works: stop focusing on what other people are doing in their lives and focus on what you’re doing.
