Avoiding Comparisons With Others

"One of the sanest, surest, and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others."

Robert A. Heinlein

Sadly, it is human tendency to measure success by comparison with our neighbors.
A consequence of this tendency is the instinct to wish for others to fail and our own status to therefore appear higher by comparison.

Strive to cheer whenever others succeed and to avoid viewing your own achievements in comparison to others.
