"If you compare yourself to others, you will become vain and bitter
For always, there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself."
Today I met a man whose son, Ken, tried to join the Army and discovered he was completely colorblind. Traffic lights work because the red is always at the top and the green at the bottom. With similar compensating logic, he had successfully negotiated all color challenges for 27 years withoutever seeing vivid colors--never feeling disadvantaged.
There are things you cannot do well or even do at all. Do they stop you from striving for excellence? We cannot accurately compare ourselves to others with capabilities we lack...any more so than Ken could understand the world of the non-colorblind. Yet all of us, flawed humans, are given power to be great in some thing or other.
