It is easy to get caught up in what others lift, how strong they are compared to you, and feel as if you could do more.
It is also pointless.
The simple fact is your strength is relative to you.
If you squatted 225 pounds 6 months ago and you are at 315 today, you got stronger and you should be proud of that.
If someone else is squatting 600 pounds who weighs the same as you, that is his strength, not yours.
Comparison is the ruiner of goals, destroyer of hopes, and self-destructive in the era of social media highlight reels.
There are too many people in this world who will never step foot under a barbell to test their limits.
Your goal is to improve, not to be held back by the heights of others, but rather to make your own heights.
