Every Time Someone Is Better at Something than You Are, It Just Means They Failed at It More Times than You Did
There's no secret to self-improvement. I can think of a few ways why other people might be making more progress than you do.
- Being a non-judgemental observer, especially of yourself. Observe, adjust, evaluate results.
- Don't care about other people's opinion, unless constructive.
- Understand that you are competing against yourself, not anyone else.
- Persist beyond disappointment.
If you succeed, let me know how you did it.
