I tend to spend a lot of time listening to podcasts, e-books or watching webinars on different subjects. This week I listened to multiple topics which all had one consistent message:
Don’t allow the power of comparison to impact your success and prevent you from walking in your purpose!
Powerful right? Many times we allow our view of someone else’s journey to make us criticize our own journey in the worst way. Why? Because we tend to be our own worst critics. Comparison can lead to so many issues. Just to name a few, these issues can be seen as financial trouble, poor decision making, unrealistic goals and a tremendously negative impact to our mental health.
How do we work on not trying to keep up with the Joneses? What can we do when we feel like we’re either stuck or lost with no direction?
• Give yourself permission to make mistakes. Don’t try to fake perfection.
• Our success is not determined by someone else’s success. If you’re following someone else’s journey, then you’re not designing your own.
• Acknowledge when you need help. Check-in with a friend, a business mentor or accountability partner. Sometimes you just need candid feedback to get you back on track.
• Learn from your successes and your failures. Also, learn from other people in your tribe who you look up to. It’s amazing what they’ve been through to be where they are.
Be firm on your goals, yet flexible with your process on achieving them. If you can take away one thing from this message, remember this: We are in competition with no one other than ourselves! Strive to improve yourself, focus on what makes you awesome, learn to go where there is no path in order to create your own and most importantly… watch yourself grow!
