Memo to Self: Don’t measure your progress using someone else’s ruler. (Binyamin Mughal, writer)
Life can be really hard when we spend our time and talent trying to live up to someone else’s expectations of us. Worrying about what others will think can really stifle our originality and creativity. We should not be unduly concerned about what others think about our work and effort so long as we are honest, truthful, and doing our very best.
Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. (Romans 12:3)
