There is hadith: “Look at those who stand at a lower level than you but don’t look at those who stand at a higher level than you, for that is better-suited that you do not disparage Allah’s favors.” Can i look for those who higher level (in wordly matters) with intension to motivate to excel myself? If yes why?

This defies the hadeeth as one is supposed to be motivated in matters related to the hereafter.
Looking at those above you in worldly matters would only depress you and make you resent Allah’s favors and blessings over you.
