race against yourself

race against yourself

It takes extraordinary strength and courage to leave the herd and follow your own path. To commit to being true to your original nature. But that’s what living your personal legend is all about. You must let go of the crowd mentality. You must run your own race. You must live your truth. 

Truly successful people never seek to be like others, they only focus on bettering themselves every single day. They are ardent practitioners of this teaching by Ernest Hemingway: “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”

Don’t race against others; race against yourself. That’s where true mastery lies. Just make the decision to be better than who you were yesterday and resolve to be better tomorrow than who you are today. Growth never ends, and when you commit to the path of continual development, life will take a whole new meaning and amazing things will unfold for you.
