Don’t measure your success by the success of others -Betty Irabor

Betty Irabor, publisher of Genevieve Magazine is one woman who defines success on her own terms.

Recently, Betty Irabor advised her followers on Instagram not to measure their success by the success of others because God’s plan for them could even be bigger.

Enjoy this inspirational post by Betty Irabor if you feel like others are succeeding and you are not. You will be encouraged not to compare your life’s journey to that of others.

“Listen ehn! We all came into this world at different times and with different destinies and for different purposes. Once you understand that then you find inner peace.

While it is easy to look at your friends, competitors and colleagues and wonder why they seem to be ahead of you and living the life you crave so badly, remember that our journeys in life are different.

Each of us has to walk the path our creator has carved out for us. Never forget that we are all unique. We cannot rush God and at the same time we cannot limit His ability to take us places beyond our capabilities.

Do not measure your success by the success of others because God’s plan for you could even be bigger.

Focus on your goals, don’t allow yourself to be distracted by what is going on in the lives of others you perceive as “having it all”. Focus on your growth. Sharpen your saw; a blunt saw can’t cut a tree.

The more you focus on what others are up to instead of focusing on how you can be a better person than you were yesterday, the more you lose focus of what really counts.

Don’t let negativity dominate your senses. Take time to celebrate even your bite size achievements. Your best is yet to come.

Live each day in abundance and with a grateful heart.”

This is one of the best posts about life, timing and success I have read in recent times.
