The only person you need to compare yourself against is the person you were yesterday.

Comparing yourself against others, being jealous, and being overly focused on your competition are unproductive mindsets.  The best way to ensure personal growth is to focus on ongoing self-improvement.

Even in competitive situations, individual wins and losses should not be dwelt on, but rather should be seen as feedback on your own journey.
