25 Inspirational Comparison Quotes

Do you ever compare you life with other people? Do you ever feel that you are not lucky, perhaps you feel that you are from the wrong country, wrong town or perhaps you have the wrong background? Do you ever scroll through social media feeling envious at the seemingly perfect lives of modern day so called ‘influencers’?

The next time that you find yourself comparing yourself to someone else. Look at the achievements of others and let them inspire you to see what is possible and use these accomplishments as motivation to create exciting goals for yourself to work towards.
