Focusing on other people has been said to be a destroyer of motivation and faith in yourself. It’s hard watching people walk past you with Michael Kors bags and shoes made of some type of animal and then look down and realize you’re working so hard and feel like you’re not getting anywhere.
Once your focus shifts toward other people you can get angry and depressed. Sometimes you might get frustrated enough that you can make stupid decisions like quit your job, sell drugs, buy something unnecessary.
That moment you realize you’re watching someone else and comparing your life to what you think is their life. In reality a lot of these people are like you. They’re also comparing their lives to your life. They also think you have a great life and money to spend.
When you really think about it, while you’re focused on what everyone else is doing you’re not really doing anything.
