Virtues cannot be cultivated. You must assume that they are there. In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna said to Arjuna, "Grieve not Arjuna, you are born with virtues." The seeker should remember that he is born with virtues; otherwise he would not be a seeker. If you think you have no virtues and then try to cultivate them, you will fail.
You compare yourself with others on teh basis of virtues. Do not compare yourself with anyone. Simply recognise all the virtues you appreciate in others and realise that those virtues are present in you in seed form. You only have to nurture them.
