11 Apr Stop Comparing Yourself to Others – Be Your Best YOU!
Your best you – There is ALWAYS going to be someone better than you – stronger than you – younger than you – smarter then you – more athletic then you – faster than you – more attractive than you – AND richer then you!
Did that depress you?
If it did, keep reading, because…
It doesn’t matter!
I am not going to even get into the whole “appearances are deceiving” aspect and the “nobody is perfect” topic. Instead, let’s talk about something that DOES matter. What does matter is that YOU can ALWAYS work to be a better version of YOU and that is independent of what anyone else is doing.
Work to be your best YOU
It is impossible to try and be somebody else. It is impossible because that “somebody else” already exists. You can NEVER be somebody else no matter how hard you try. It is a waste of time wishing for that and it causes envy which is a wasted emotion. What you can do is you can ALWAYS work to be your best you. You can always be a smarter, stronger and BETTER version of YOU.
Do you want to be a better version of you?
Decide “How BAD do you want IT?” Do you want it bad enough to do what it takes? Are you willing to put in the extra hours and go the extra mile? Do you feel you are worthy of being a better you? Decide that you want to work for it and decide that you will stop comparing yourself to others.
Understand that you will have to work for it. There is a solution for everyone if you want to find it. There is a formula for EVERYONE. It may be harder for you, it may take longer for you, and there may be more obstacles for you, but that doesn’t matter because there is a formula for everyone including you! If you want it bad enough and if you are willing to WORK for it, you CAN find a solution that will work for you! Remember, you can ALWAYS become a better you.
Recognize that every step forward is a step in the right direction. Every step forward is STILL a step forward! Let go of the “I have to do all or nothing” and be PROUD at the strides you are making in the RIGHT direction. Instead of looking at how far you HAVE to go, look at how far you have come! Think what you can add RIGHT to your day instead of beating yourself up over what you think you did wrong.
Many people compare themselves to others when it comes losing weight, getting fit or becoming a success. Many people compare to MANY others. The problem is that all of this comparing does NOTHING to help YOU become a better you.
Say you are bummed out because your friend just ran a marathon and you feel you could never do that. Instead of being bummed out, start taking action and do what she did…go jog around the block. That action alone is a step forward in the right direction and gets you one step further to YOUR goals. Sitting there with envy and complaining about why it is “easier for her” does nothing to help you.
So instead of pondering WHY someone else has more than YOU, take the time to decide how bad you want it and decide how HARD you are willing to WORK FOR it!
