You will compare yourself to others. (It's what you do next that matters.)

Musing for:

You will compare yourself to others

“Don’t fall into the comparison trap” is a confusing warning.

You can’t avoid comparing yourself with others. But you can avoid falling into a trap.

What matters is how you respond to what you notice.

If they’re better than you are at a certain skill:

✅ You can admire them and find inspiration to become a better version of yourself
❌ Or you can resent them for having a perceived unfair advantage

And if they’re worse:

✅ You can invest in the success of others with gratitude for others who invested in you
❌ Or you can choose smug superiority, keeping your advantage by suppressing others

Those who choose inspiration and investment find life more fulfilling.

Choose wisely.
