5 Ways to Stop Comparing Yourself with Others

We know comparing ourselves to other people is generally not a positive experience. We often compare are ourselves to people who have what we want, look like we want to, or have another attribute that creates our longing to be them or be like them.

Comparison is the death of originality and a constant hit to your self-esteem. Your journey is about you. Their journey is about them. Always remember it.

Here are 5 quick tips for stopping the comparison and loving your Journey more than ever.

  1. Honor your journey – respect the integrity and the value of your journey. You must believe you are here for an important purpose to achieve amazing things.
  2. They have challenges too – what you see when your compare yourself to others is them at their best and you as a distant. You don’t see the hard work or hardship in their journey that got them where they are.
  3. They did it. You can too – they earned your envy and adoration by staying true their path. That is how you will achieve your full potential too.
  4. Let them inspire – comparison may be unhealthy, but inspiration is not. Let their story inspire you to be you not them.
  5. There is only ONE YOU – in all of time and space, there’s no other you. You’re one in a trillion! You’re your own light. You need not bask in someone else’s.

Oh, and by the way, just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!

I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
