Comparison isn't the thief of joy


This week I want to talk to you guys about comparison.

Comparison can be a quick trip to self-destruction if you’re not careful with how you use it.

And comparison creeps up in many aspects of growing a business. Pretty much everywhere you look, you’ll see people doing it (seemingly) better than you are.

More consistent. Better video. Better speaking. Better face lol. Better results.

If you're not careful, you will start comparing yourself to other people who are further along than you are and you'll start to really self destruct and destroy whatever you're trying to accomplish this week.

“Comparison is the thief of joy.” True… but it's only true if when you're comparing yourself, you're being actually envious of the other person.

When used correctly, however, I think comparison is a good thing.

If you use it to inspire yourself rather than be envious of what other people have, comparison can propel you forward.

If you see someone on TV or you see someone on social media or you see someone down the road with a new brand new car, whatever it is, and you compare what they have to what you have and you start feeling bad about it, you're actually feeling envy.

You're wishing you had what they had when in actuality you can have what you what they have.

Use comparison as fuel to your inspiration.

You see what is possible FOR YOU if you would just put your head down and start working towards it.

Don't let it rob you of your joy anymore. Compare yourself to greatness, be inspired and go get it.

Compare this week to how last week went and see how it goes!
