Comparison with others is common and obvious especially when you are trying to achieve anything. Many a time it gives rise to superiority or jealousy. But according to me, the comparison is a useful weapon which you can use to achieve your goals and to encourage your own self.
Every Human being has a different set of abilities and talents. Every individual is talented and good at something or the other. As we compare with others, we try to do everything that others do. While comparing, we forget that one cannot be good at everything. Hence, the first rule of comparison is that you cannot be good at everything and so just to focus on what you are good at.
No individual is perfect. We all have our own flaws and imperfections. Trying to be perfect is good, but many a time it backfires if done in the wrong way. You can’t give perfect results at all times. There will be a few bad days, so don’t get disheartened and never give up.
The tendency to be perfect arises when we compare ourselves with others. Just make sure that you don’t get disheartened at imperfect results and quit.
If we talk about a bad comparison, it is when you look at somebody else and your mind starts thinking inferior of self. You must have noticed that someone score good marks, and you felt like they are gifted and lucky? This what a bad comparison is.
Thus, you are suggested to compare yourself with others but with positivity. You should put more efforts after a comparison rather than feel disheartened and jealous.
