This was another one that I stole from Facebook, but this time from a dear co-worker of mine.

I think that everyone can learn from a message like this.  It’s hard for us as humans to not compare ourselves to others and to not let appearances overwhelm us.  Sometimes we can’t help but feel like the people around us are beating us at everything, but then we have to remember that we know how much we have accomplished and that is all that matters.  Once it’s time for us to enjoy the benefits of everything we have put into our work, it will be known to us that it was all worth it and that our true success is evident.  Enjoy your success and never doubt it!
