Everyone is on a quest for love, health and abundance in life. Everyone of us will experience obstacles and setbacks in our journey…called life… we all have a story. Today….instead of being jealous or envious of others…send love, blessings and compassion. DO the same for yourself….next time you look in the mirror…tell yourself that you fully and completely love yourself, accept and approve of yourself!!! Our words are very powerful.
You honestly never know what is going on inside of others. You don’t always know what people are going through…what their dreams are…what challenges they are facing, or what they have gone through to get where they are!
Stop criticizing others and yourself!
It is important to remember….we are born to be different..we all have different emotions, different mindsets, and interpret things differently. Nobody is flawless..we all have imperfections..and that is what makes us unique!!! Always be true to yourself!
You can never be too old to dream, and it is never too late to achieve your dreams…if you want something…go after it..don’t ever give up!!!
3 reasons to not compare yourselves to others!
1. Not good for your sense-of-self (knowing who you are and being comfortable with yourself). There is upward comparison (envy, jealousy etc) and downward comparison (comparing ourselves to less fortunate..which can provide some benefit to ones sense of self..but requires us to take pleasure in others failures or misfortunes in order to feel adequate…not a good thing!
2. Most of the time what you are comparing yourself to what you see on social media or what the people choose to share with the world…some people only share the positive (and some people only share the negative). We also tend to distort information receive too…so it is usually and edited version we are comparing to.
3. It doesn’t help YOU accomplish YOUR goals.
Worrying about how much popular someone else is, or how much money they have, or how successful they are …is time consuming and and ineffective.
Being too hard on yourself actually zaps your motivation and hurts your goal completion.
You should be focusing and dedicating your time to to your own values in life.
SO don’t constantly compare yourselves to others…It is a losing battle.
You will never be better than others in every way….and why would you want to be?
Focus your energy on being the best version of YOU!!!!You are completely in charge of what YOU focus on…spend your energy in uplifting, productive and fun ways!!!!
Direct your energy and attention to your own life and goals
