1 Corinthians 9:24, NIVDo you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.
Too often when we see someone who’s more talented and successful, there’s a tendency to think, Why can’t I do that? I want what they have. If we’re not careful, before long we’ll be trying to outperform them, outdress them, outdrive them, outwork them. The problem is that you’re competing with someone who’s not in your race. Your race is specifically for you. You’re not in competition with anyone else. The only competition you have is with yourself to be the best that you can be. So quit comparing yourself to others and run your race.
Nobody can beat you at being you. You can be a better you than anybody in the world. When you’re comfortable with who you are, you’re not trying to be something that you’re not, then your own uniqueness, creativeness, and talent will come out in greater ways. Why? Because you’ve stepped into the anointing on your life. Be you. You are powerful when you’re you.
