Comparison Is the Thief Of Joy

The world’s system creates a culture of competition—

Look at the iPhone—you never knew you wanted the new model until you saw your friend had it, right?

Look at our idols/icons—the pressure and the push to be perfect sometimes over-comes their character and core beliefs.

Take Lance Armstrong for example. When Lance Armstrong was asked by Oprah if he would have won so many times if he hadn’t doped, he said “doubtful”.  Can you imagine the pressure he faced to keep up his stats and status?

If there’s one thing I’ve learned: it’s never to judge people—because we never know the pressure they face or feel. No one is perfect.

For myself, I’ll be honest—I’ve compared myself to leaders and speakers, thinking how I could ever “talk like them”, “train like them”, or “lead like them”.

I’ve come to the realization that the only thing I should be working on or worried about, is being the best version of “me” I can be. Being the best leader I can be.  I should only focus on my goals and growth along the way.

I’m not meant to lead everyone—therefore I won’t please everyone—so I shouldn’t focus on those that have “left”, I should only focus on those that I am called to “lead” –and focus on growing personally, and professionally along the way.

When we waste valuable energy comparing ourselves to others we are overlooking our potential, and the opportunity for growth in our own life. We might be trying to emulate something someone else is doing, and in the meantime missing our calling because we aren’t doing what we are supposed to be doing! We may have been given a way to do things bigger, and better—but perhaps we’ve missed it as our focus is placed on the wrong things! We are too distracted to notice the gifts in front of us because we are too busy focusing on what others have been gifted with!

We have to give that up today. It’s time to stop struggling, striving, comparing, and competing. The death of contentment is comparison. Competition takes you captive. Focus on YOUR calling. It’s time to be FREE!

Never forget who YOU are, what YOU do best, and how many people will be inspired by YOU being authentically YOU! It’s time to celebrate YOUR uniqueness! The privilege of a lifetime is to be who YOU are!
