We try hard to be the best we can be. But some times we don’t live up to our goals (or goals society sets).
At this point, it is too common - but rather than take stock, enjoy how far you’ve come or make a deal with yourself to make it better - it is too easy to to knock someone else down to make yourself look better.
But this hurts. And it uses people in such a negative way. And people matter, and should not be subject to this.
A 200lb woman who was 250lbs has reason to celebrate! Someone who has $5000 of debt, but is headed in the right direction should not have to spend $400 to feel good. A paid off 7 year old car can be better than a brand new car representing 72 months of payments. Honest is better than hot, support better than criticism. Because people matter.
So... Rather… help someone reach their goals. Make other people feel better about themselves and you’ll start feeling enlightened, happy and rich too.
And it works because people matter.
