Keep your eyes on your prize, not on the prizes of others. That way, you will not breed discontent and create a never-ending whirlwind of despair within your own mind. Beware of becoming a mental slave, deluded in thinking that you are working to your own freedom, whereas in truth you are working to the enrichment of another.
This is not to say that you should not aspire to, or admire, the prizes of others. Use those visions as aspirational goals, but do not use the people themselves as aspirational targets. Big difference. be yourself, forge your own path, and use the techniques and tools of others to get what you want and what you need.
Be fearless and unapologetic in advancing your own dreams, as long as you do not injure another.
