Focus on being better than yourself

I love quotes – brainy quotes. You will find a full pinterest board of wise words on my account. I collect them there so I can find a wise word when I need it, when I need to get inspired or fired up. Some quotes I post and when I find them back I don’t remember them. But sometimes I find a quote and this quote keeps spinning in my head and I just cannot stop thinking about it. Yesterday I found this quote on instagram posted by the model Gisele Bündchen:

„Don’t worry about being better than others. Focus on being better than yourself.“

In photography and in life we talk so much about not comparing us to others but I think this quote really get’s to the core of it. Try to be better than you were yesterday everyday. I remember sitting with one of my good friends in a coffee house, drinking some latte macchiato and talking about life and business. We were discussing working with assistants and outsourcing parts of our workflow. We discussed the expectations we have towards others working for us and then we came up with an outcome that is still in my head and that I remembered reading Gisele’s Quote yesterday: „Be the best version of yourself, be the best employer you can be for your own (little) company“.

Today, just try to focus on yourself and be a little better than you were yesterday.

This is just the beginning of an authentic evolution to become the best version of yourself.
