Whenever you find a mission or vision to execute, you must ensure to never settle and become content. You have to remain awake and alert, critically analysing yourself. Comparing how far you have gone vs the big picture.
A lot of people start well, but then they fizzle out or they ‘park’ at stage 1 of the mission. Never moving on to the next stage, never getting to make a ruckus after all. The truth is that a lot of people are just hype and no stuff and when you compare yourself with them, you are tempted to pat yourself on the back too. But, when we compare ourselves with others, we are not wise.
You ought to only compare yourself with the big picture. The original vision you set out to accomplish in the first place. Ask yourself tough questions, be honest with yourself and seek the next step. People are too hypocritical. These days, you can rarely rely on people to accurately evaluate your work; all they want to do is beat drums and sing your songs on the mountains.
It is now left to you to honestly evaluate yourself and refuse to settle for less.
