In , at the ripe age of 20, Benjamin Franklin created a habit-tracking system to help him live a more successful life. On each day of the week, he would give himself a crossmark for the virtues he failed to practice. His check-mark system, alongside his morning and evening questions - served to steer his life in a far more focused direction. It made him continually think about ideas he could implement each day to practice goodness , both for his benefit and the benefit of those around him. His systems not only affected his daily actions but they also positively influenced his thought patterns each day. All the plaudits he received in his lifetime were secondary. It was determined by his own standards.
I think we can probably all agree that your life might be different if you decided to stop comparing yourself to others. Over the years, I've compared myself to others plenty of times. I've compared myself to others when it came to school, looks, money, and more. I know that sounds bad, but without acknowledging that, it would be hard to stop. People often compare themselves to others to determine how well they are doing in life and base their personal value on that.
