Today’s task is to take a look at last week’s exercise where you listed a situation you lack confidence in. Take a second to think of how you can stop comparing in order to foster more internal confidence with which to approach your situation in future.
Some tips and tricks to stop comparing are realizing that:
- There is never a fair comparison
- For a true comparisons you need to measure and this is almost always impossible when comparing people
- Comparisons rob you of joy
- Comparisons lead to either envy, insecurity or pride – not pleasant emotions by any means
Now for the real challenge – a comparison ban! For this week I challenge you to stop all comparisons yourself and others. I would also encourage you to stop comparing people completely and see the impact it has upon your well being.
Do you often find yourself comparing yourself to others? Can you see the benefit of a comparison ban? If you do decide to take part in the comparison ban please comment on this post next week as I would love to see how you got on!! Please share your thoughts in the comments below to gain encouragement, insight and support from our community, we’d love to hear from you.
