One of the biggest struggles I have is in comparing myself to others. In fact, recently I noticed it was getting tough to be happy for my friends who were seeing major successes in their ventures. Seriously, they were doing really well and all I could think about was how we stacked up. That’s when I decided that I needed to cut it out. In this episode, I talk about how to stop comparing yourself to others and breakdown why it’s important to focus on the journey.
The truth is, comparing yourself to others is probably the number one thing holding you back from where you want to be. The more time you spend making yourself feel bad about where you are compared to others, the less time you are spending focused on the tasks that could actually get you there.
Instead of comparing myself to others, I’ve decided to keep reminding myself that we are all playing a different game with different goals and different origins. When you look at it this way you realize that it literally makes no sense to spend a single second comparing yourself to what others are doing. After-all, you don’t want the same things as them and you aren’t coming from the same place that they are. Things changed for me really quickly after that. Sure, I still compare myself to others from time to time. But the point is that most of my time is now spend being happy for the people I care about while simultaneously working towards the things I actually want.
