I'm starting a new series of Wise Words today, All of which look like Chalkboards.
And really, Who doesn't love this chalkboard trend?
These are some seriously wise words from Ayn Rand, author of Atlas shrugged (among other things).
It is so easy to compare ourselves to others, and to feel jealous and resentful, but this isn't how we better ourselves. We have to really be CREATIVE to find our own way, and challenge and compete with ourselves, and not EVERYONE else around us. We need only improve and maintain ourselves to really be happy. If you go through your whole life trying to beat down other people you will never feel complete because there will always be someone else to beat down just behind them. Where as if you look only to bettering yourself then there is no limit to what you can accomplish.
Not to mention that you can keep people around to support you instead of smashing them under your boot on the way.
