It is natural to tend to compare ourselves with how others are doing. Especially those whom we consider to be similar to ourselves. 

And such comparison often kills our joy because we are more likely to notice the things that we don't have than the things that we do. 

So, popular advice is to avoid comparing ourselves to others and to compare ourselves to our past instead and notice the improvements.

Yet, comparing ourselves to others and the sense of competition that brings with it can be a motivating factor for us to go out and seek to be more than what we are. 

As with everything, this act of comparison can both be good and bad depending on how much of it we employ. 

The trick is to strike the right balance.
