We compare ourselves to others all day long. Whether we’re talking about our friends, family members, coworkers, neighbors, or even celebrities, we always seem to find something wrong with them. We look at their lives and think, “I wish I had what they have”, or “If only I were thinner/richer/more successful than them, then everything would be perfect!”
But here’s the thing…we don’t know how good they really are until we stop comparing ourselves to them. When we do that, we start to realize just how great we actually are. And once we get over the comparison hump, it becomes easier to appreciate who we are and what we have.
So let me ask you…how often do you compare yourself to someone else? If you’re honest with yourself, chances are pretty high. But if you really want to change things around, try not doing it anymore. Instead, focus on being happy with who you are right now. You may never become rich, thin, or famous, but you can still live a wonderful life.
Here are some tips to help you break free from comparisons:
– Stop looking at people and thinking, “if only I was skinny/rich/famous, then my life would be perfect.”
– Don’t ever compare yourself to anyone else. That includes your parents, siblings, friends, co-workers, teachers, celebrities, etc.
– Be grateful for what you already have instead of wishing for more.
– Focus on appreciating the positive aspects of your own life rather than focusing on what you lack.
– Remember that no matter how much money you make, you’ll never be able to buy happiness.
We compare ourselves to others all day long. Whether we’re talking about our friends, family members, coworkers, neighbors, celebrities, athletes, models, etc., we always have someone else to look at and say, “I’m not good enough.” But what if we stopped comparing ourselves to everyone else? What would happen if we just compared ourselves to who we were yesterday? Would we feel any different?
In today’s episode I share some powerful insights about how we compare ourselves to others and how it’s affecting our lives. In addition, I share my personal experience with meditation and mindfulness.
