It's always good to take a step back and check your motives. Are you motivated simply out of a desire to want to be better than someone else? The bible tells us to seek God first and He will give us all that we desire. We get to caught up in wanting stuff and not wanting a closer relationship with God.
"2You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. 3And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure." - James 4:2-3
