It’s no secret that one of the quickest ways to identify that the self-saboteur is in the house is by catching thoughts of comparison to others.
“He makes more money than I do”
.”She’s in better shape than I am.”
.”People seem to like him more than they like me.”
.”Wow, I’ll never be as good at running a business as she is.”
These thoughts may be coming up for you with the competition out there online. It certainly doesn’t lift us up and make us feel good – so why, oh why, does our brain run this constant comparathon to how others are doing?
Quite simply, this is how we are conditioned to determine where we stand in the human “race”.
Look to your left, look to your right – how are you measuring up? Are you winning or losing?
The problem with this mentality is that there will always be people to your left and your right who are slightly further ahead on the track than you are. And that may have nothing to do with ability – it may simply be that they’re older, or have been on the track longer than you.
We challenge you today to notice your thoughts of comparison to others and stay in your own lane.
