Beat yourself, up
In life, we are either busy striving to live how others are living or we are focused on fitting into the mold of other people’s expectations. Instead of running our own race, we allow other people to pinch hit in our game of life. Your outward course depends on your inward perspective. The only person you need to become better than and beat tomorrow is the person you were today. Don’t live your life conforming to the temporal things other people have; don’t surrender your dreams to the autocratic plans others have for your life. You are a priceless, original-put your thumbprint on the rungs of success.
If you want to beat someone, beat yourself, up. The toughest, most worthy opponent you’ll ever face is you.
