It is common practice to measure ourselves against some of our peers, influencers, and leaders. It is unhealthy to constantly measure ourselves against other people. Theodore Roosevelt’s proverb is powerful. Comparison is the thief of joy. It can be fruitless and we are left unhappy when we compare ourselves as a means to self-fulfillment.

Comparison is the thief of joy.
