“Blowing out someone else’s candle won’t make yours shine brighter.” – Author Unknown
Today’s midday motivation is inspired by a conversation I had with my son. He was telling me about an art contest he was entering and said he was sure he would win because the other entries were bad. I explained to him that success shouldn’t be based on the shortcomings of others but the hard work YOU put in to be your best.
It’s so easy to focus on the discrepancies of others instead of pushing beyond our own potential, but this is a must if you want to sustain your success. Blowing out someone else’s candle won’t make yours shine brighter. Work hard to achieve your goal, not for others, but for yourself.
