If your goal is to do good in the world, other people doing good are on your side. They’re not your competition.

Your competition is yourself. The part of you that challenges you to be better than you were before. Not better merely for the sake of patting yourself on the back or having more than others. But better for the sake of others too.

If you’re trying to be better than others, it shouldn’t be about domination or a feeling of superiority. It should be about making others better too, and better off.
