"I am not the type of person who thinks in terms of 'if only' or 'could have', would have, should have.' It is what it is and everything happens for a reason.
When a person thinks 'if only I would have known such and such,' it shows a certain amount of fear or lack of trust that everything is as it should be.
I try to always do my best and if I look back and think I didn't do my best, then that is the only thing I acknowledge and then try to change."- Charlene Wong, Canadian figure skater
Never compare yourself to anyone. It is only your best that can take you to where you want to be. Comparing your best to someone else's best is a waste of time. Do not do that. It is not for you. It is a dirty game. Wherever you are, always give your best. When you do your best, you get the best.
It is your best. It is good enough for you. Because it is your best.
"In order to advance to the place you have chosen,
two things are necessary: one, that you keep your
eye on your goal, and two, that you continue to grow
from the standpoint of competence and effectiveness."
Dreams are not easy, but you can achieve your dreams.
No matter how hard, do not give in to fear.
Do not forget where you are going.
Do not forget why you are doing what you are doing.
It is your journey. So take your time.
Focus on your 'why', and you will get there.
