A former chaplain of the US Senate, Richard Halverson, once said… “Want to be a winner? Compete against yourself, not somebody else. Outrunning your rival doesn’t mean you ran your best race. You can win over another and still not fulfill your potential. It’s true in all of life. To be your best, you must compete with yourself. It’s life’s biggest contest.”
In Galatians 6, the Bible says, “If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. Each one should test his own actions.” One of the biggest barriers to personal success is the comparison of ourselves to others. You are the only one qualified to be you… and that’s what God made you to do! Are you ready to move forward and improve? Stay in your lane, check your own motives, work on improving yourself, and remember… your only real competition is the you of yesterday. Keep moving forward!
