Flying in comparison

Lately it has been difficult for me to think beyond the next hour. And sometimes I barely can get past an hour. Focus does not always just happen. It comes easier for some than for others. So does life. We have crosses to bear. 

We all at some point in our lives think that someone someone somewhere else has it easier. And maybe the do. And maybe what we are seeing is his/her one good moment. Or maybe we are seeing the mirage, the smoke and mirrors.  

What is the goal of comparing ourselves to others? It is to gauge our level of competency? To see if we are better than someone else? Or something more sinister? Whatever the reason, we should stop it. 

Winners compare their achievement with their goals, while losers compare their achievement with those of other people.
