So how do we break these comparison patterns we have developed over our lifetime? How do we stop comparing ourselves and rather be INSPIRED by those we look up to?
The answers can be found in self-reflection. And I caution you NOT to get trapped in self-judgment and self-criticism.
Like anything you want to change, it has to begin from within. It’s okay if you made mistakes in the past, and if you realize that your subconscious ways of doing things are finally revealed. You may wonder “Why didn’t I see this coming?”
Embrace that you are opening your eyes to doing things YOUR way and staying true to what your intentions are.
Go deep into understanding your values and what you stand for. Not what you have been TOLD to stand for. That includes how you live your life.
Don’t allow your version of success to be measured by either someone or something that makes you feel bad about yourself. It’s time to remove that and the hold it has on your life. It’s time to break up with what no longer serves you, and no longer makes you feel inspired and motivated. Stop the comparison game. Pursue your own goals and success in life.
Find someone, like a coach or a mentor, who holds your best interest as the center of working your way towards living your life in an authentic and meaningful way, and in alignment with the person you want to transform into.
I worked with clients who, after examining their lives, realized they disliked their careers and started on a new path towards what they absolutely felt was their calling. Or they broke down the walls of their own fragile self-image, started to love their bodies, and found a positive and healthy way of living that worked for THEM.
Remember that the grass is not always greener on the other side. A cliché? Yes, but it holds a tremendous amount of truth. What you “see” is most likely curated and polished to hide the imperfections that lie beneath.
