Looking but not seeing

We look at others and tend think their lives are absent of drama and difficulty. We look at how others perform and think they don’t have the problems that we have ourselves. To be envious of another’s success is the sign of an insecure human being. But to be envious of a ‘mirage’ - is surely just a sign of stupidity.

It is a common mistake to compare apples with oranges. We look but often  fail to see. 

Most people have struggles of some kind in the lives, their relationships, their finances, their health - and yes, their BJJ Game. The struggle, though, is where the pay-off lies. In dealing with the struggle, in solving the problems, we become more adept; not only at BJJ - but at the living of life itself.
