Comparing does not get anyone anywhere. It only creates jealousy, envy and what not. It may not even be good for our health. In our close knot society we are constantly bombarded with ads flashing with people who are living the high life meanwhile for the common man it is a whole different story. This creates a constant battle to achieve that level of so called success. Success is a measure and this measure of success is different for everyone. So we need to rethink its definition on what is applicable to us. Many times over what you see is not what you see. Looks are deceptive. A well dressed man may be laden with debt meanwhile a poorly dress man may be a millionaire. You cannot judge a book by its cover. This applies to everything we do in our lives.
