Being the best

Sometimes it can be useful to see where you sit in the pecking order so you have a more visible goal to work towards when trying to improve, but even then you’re comparing yourself to others, which is only useful at getting better than them.

Once you’re there, what do you do?

You have to be better than everybody in the world to be the world’s best, but to sustain it, you have to be constantly better than your previous self, because that’s the benchmark others are working towards.

Personally, I think it’s fine to simply be better than your previous self, and to not worry about others, or how others view you at all.
