Oh well, I do not see a big deal in what comparison does to one, but, I have some reservations against it.
The Writ has it that “…those that compare themselves are not wise…” A couple of years ago, I stumbled on a quote that reads “Do not try to be someone else, the best you would be is second fiddle to that person” Trying to compare yourself with others steals and kills the joy you have. I am not saying one should not have role models or mentors, do not get me wrong. The only challenge here is forgetting who you are as a result of comparing your life with others who are better positioned than you are. In choosing people to pattern your life after, it is imperative to be logical, thoughtful and clinical with your decision.
Also, your personality is a big deal that should not be silenced when choosing to be a Warren Buffet or a Bill Gate. It is very important to consider your traits, characteristics and personalities when patterning one’s life with others. Do not do this blindly, it might get really messy if you do not consider your options before taking a plunge into comparing yourself with others.
