Instead, I’d rather be hard on myself because I think that’s what makes me tough and that’s what will make me successful. I refuse to come to grips with the progress I’ve made because then I would be “soft”.

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation” — Brain Tracy

Stop being jealous of others and appreciate what you have. Just because the grass looks greener on the other side doesn’t mean it is because what may seem like a field of healthy green-space may actually be a field of weeds.
