When you compare your work to others, you are playing a dangerous game with your confidence.

When you are constantly focusing on someone else’s accomplishment, you ignore what really matters.

These 6 ways have helped me keep my eyes on building my blog. I hope they help you in keeping your eyes on your work:

Reject any notion that you need external proof of your own self-worth.

List your accomplishments.

Think about what you can learn from others.

We can always learn something from others — if we open our hearts and be willing enough.

When you ask, what can I learn from others? you learn from them, not pitting yourself against them.

Create goals particular to your individual aspirations.

Accept where your work is.

Be your own ally.
