Why it’s bad:
We forget our uniqueness. How cool is it that there’s NO one else on this world LIKE you. You are literally so many things all at once and no one CAN compare. It literally is just not right to do. It’s like comparing peanut butter to a gourmet steak, there’s actually no comparison and it’s time we acknowledge that and own it.
We get stuck. Sometimes we don’t even get started because we’re afraid that someone else is doing it better. This is one of the worst debilitating effects on our lives or our projects and dreams. Make competition work for you, fuel you and put fire under you to GET started.
No one can compare fairly and justly. It’s a waste of time. I read the book the Sport of Business by Mavs owner Mark Cuban and he said that once he became successful all people saw was the success, they didn’t see or weren’t interested in the very real struggle of being poor, overweight, and miserable. Even the most successful people have been to the darkest places you will never be able to see. Comparing doesn’t ever match up.
There’s too much emphasis going on other people when you really should be focusing on yourself and improving yourself! Please don’t get stuck in the comparing game that I have for so many years. It’s still something I can improve on, let’s do it together!
