Often we come across people saying "if only I had the money to buy that, I could have excelled." "If only my parents had agreed to send me to those classes, I would have conquered the world."
"If only I was as talented as him, I could have done something with my life."
"I am better than my neighbor that is enough for me."
We never for a second think what makes people excel, the difference between someone who breaks records and leaves the competition behind is that he is not competing with the world he is competing against himself.
Life will never be perfect, never will we have a perfect scenario where everything falls in place, the only thing that stops us from pushing ahead is ourselves, the single difference between a winner and a loser is that the winner wanted it more than the loser. The only aspect that makes superstars is the determination to become one regardless of the how hard life can hit you in your face.
