You Vs. You

"Moving forward on your Pre-PT journey, always remember to be in competition with yourself."

Have you ever compared yourself to others? Compared your value of belongings to another persons belongings? Wished upon something that was totally out of your league at that moment?

I remember when I was younger, and there was one pack of gummy bears left. When I asked my mother if I could have that last bag, she told me I could have it, as long as I shared with my younger sister. Of course like any other older sibling, I was going to make sure I had more gummy bears than she did. My mother knew my objective, so she took it upon herself and split the bag between my sister and I.

From the looks of it, I was at a guaranteed mindset that she had a bigger portion than I did. But that wasn’t the case though, we had an equal amount of gummy bears in our hands.

Before writing this blog to share with you guys, I thought back on this situation and as a kid I did not realize the importance of the lesson learned until I became older and looked back on the situation.

"How can you make yourself better than you were yesterday, last month, or last semester?"

This is when I learned to not focus on what others have in their hand. But to focus on what you have to bear in yours. When we put our focus on others, we lose sight of our own possessions. We become worried about others getting ahead of us, what others know, that we don’t know.

Here’s a helpful tip: Stay In Your Own Lane

We get off on our path, because we get sidetracked by what paradise looks like for others. What looks like paradise to us, could be a complete allusion for others.

You shouldn’t find yourself competing with the next man. Only focusing on the one that’s in the mirror. You are your own competition. Moving forward on your Pre-PT journey, always remember to be in competition with yourself.

How can you make yourself better than you were yesterday, last month, or last semester? Where do you see yourself in the next three to six months? What is your overall goal as a Physical Therapist? These are the questions that one asks, who are in competition with their own selves.

It will always be you versus you. No one can ever take your place, as long as you remain in your lane.
