Consider how far you have come and then determine the progress. Your race is not against others, it is a race against yourself. The race assigned to you is specific and like no other. The training, the preparation and the outcomes are all different.
Now is not the time to compromise or to compare with another. I love them and have given them a race, I love you and have given you a separate race. Your race fulfills your purposes and their race fulfills an entirely different purpose.
Trust what I have said to them and trust even more, what I am saying to you, now. Begin to look inward for your direction and internally for your benchmarks. I have filled you with both instinct and a moral compass, trust them.
You will continue to waiver watching the sails of others. The society and the culture have caused you to ignore the most obvious thing and to resist the most natural affinity, MY Voice. The race is to clearly hear: MY voice.
Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct.
