"I'm way ahead of where other people are at..."
"Most people who graduated my year from my school are only making $xx,xxx but I'm making $xx,xxx + 20%."
"Most people have a ton of bad debt. I've only got a little bit."
"Most people don't do anything really exciting or interesting. But I've got one interesting hobby, so I'm different and better."
Cut that out, eh?
Normal is a terrible benchmark. Study your own potential and desires, and decide what you're willing to give up to get what you wish. Become everything you can be that you wish to be... in your chosen fields and with your top priorities, that could be as much as 100x or 1000x further along than normal.
Benchmarking against normal sets the bar way too low. Benchmark against your own potential, and against your desires. You get less "self-pats-on-the-back," but you'll live a much more thrilling life.
