Most Inspiring Quotes From Marcus Buckingham
We can never achieve goals that envy sets for us. Looking at your friends and wishing you had what they had is a waste of precious energy. Because we are all unique, what makes another happy may do the opposite for you.

"You will learn and grow the least in your areas of weakness."
"You cannot learn very much about excellence from studying failure."
"We live with them every day, and they come so easily to us that they cease to be precious."
"True individuality can be lonely."
"The difference between a pebble and a mountain lies in whom you ask to move it."

Believe that nobody is perfect. Other’s journey is entirely different from yours. What works for you may not work for them. Instead of resorting to comparisons, it is better to work on your strengths and improve on your weaknesses, albeit in a healthy way. Envy, one of the deadly sins, can set you on a negative spiral. It is like beating yourself up. Unhealthy comparisons can lower morale and make you feel worthless. (Motivational Quotes)
