The only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday.
In life we must learn that though there are people who do great things that definitely deserve our respect, they are no greater than we are, and should never be our idols. We may look to others with sincere respect and a sincere amount of love, and we very well should be inspired by the great things that people do. But we should never be so caught up in another person’s greatness that we forget about the greatness we have inside ourselves.
Anything that someone has already done can be accomplished and surpassed by you. You do have the power to do even greater things than the people from which you are inspired by. Believe in your heart that you can show this world how great you are! Work hard in everything you do, and be sure to carry with you a “refuse to quit” attitude as each day passes.
