Why You Shouldn’t Compare Yourself to Others

There’s not a single person on this Earth who hasn’t compared and looked at someone else and thought, “man, I would be so much happier if I had that.”

We often confuse our own self-worth and happiness with the things other people have. It may be a car, a slimmer body, or photos of extravagant vacations every week. And it feels like you’re looking at a giant billboard of everything that’s out of your reach.

Compare Yourself to Who You Were Yesterday (not someone’s highlight reel).

The thing is, you’ll never hear anyone bragging about their struggles. The people who seem to have it together all the time experience failure every single day. If you actually knew how often they have fallen and had to pick themselves back up, you’d probably realize that all the things you want actually are within reach.

Don’t Let the Losses in Your Life Determine Your Direction.

When we’re younger, we genuinely believe that we can do anything and be anyone we want. As we age, we experience plenty of disappointments and letdowns. Maybe you failed a math class once or twice, and it started to feel like you just weren’t smart enough. Perhaps you tried out for the volleyball team and didn’t make the cut, either way; you began to feel less confident in yourself. As you became older, maybe you’ve carried it into your adult life.

The only comparison you should be making is with the person you were yesterday. 

Instead of sulking about the life you wish you could have, start getting excited about the life you’re working toward.

Today is the day to take action and make a change, do whatever you feel is necessary – just do something different.

You can waste your whole day wishing you had someone else’s body, wardrobe, and car, or you can get up and do something about it! Stop looking side to side and lock in what’s ahead for you.

Find something that gives you passion and a sense of purpose. You possess capabilities that the next person does not, so don’t deprive the world of the incredible person that you already are by trying to compete with another.

Just work on being a better you every single day.
