How many times we have seen people comparing us with others, may be our parents or your supervisor at work place or relatives.
Now I do not believe that we should be compared with others and make a judgment on our abilities
Each person has a unique skills which is been developed over the years and by experience.
Now why would someone compare us with others? Because of expectations? Most of the time, its YES
Life has become a rat race, and if you don’t win the race you will perish is the ideology people believe. Hence all these comes into picture.
I ask them gently, if Edison’s mother had compared him with the rest of the children and said you are useless, would he be successful? But that’s what his teacher did perhaps.
Many parents, teachers or manager at work believe that if you compared with rest, you will feel guilty about your worthlessness and you will start improving. I say NO. This in fact bring down the morale
Of course we can always learn from successful people in that field but comparison is not good.
You might have a unique skill which he even don’t have. Point is to recognize those, identify the loophole and facts that’s hindering you from moving ahead and make an action plan
So now what do you folks think. Does comparison help you or does encouragement help you?
