You Are Your Only Competition

Hey y’all!

Today I’m back with a little motivation for you and this time it’s coming from one of the original Kings of Comedy, Bernie Mac. The late comedian was known for making us laugh until we cry but I think his words of wisdom sometimes go unnoticed. I found an interview from the Oprah show where he gives us some of those gems. One thing he said that resonated with me was:

“I’m not in competition with anybody… I think if you focus on being the best within yourself, all that stuff will come.”

Speaking in terms of success, its so important to use yourself as a measure of progress instead of others as Bernie suggests. Press play to watch:
