Meditating on two self-help quotes:

"Self-esteem falls when you think everyone is winning except you."
-Richard N. Bolles

and

"Comparison is the seed of all despair."
-Murray Oxman

There's more to it than that but I think these two quotes offer a starting point that is a bit more useful than merely preaching the power of positive thinking.
