Whenever You Catch Yourself Comparing Yourself To Others, Say This One Thing To Yourself

Comparing yourself to other people is a total waste of your time. Stop doing that to yourself.

The people you are comparing yourself to have their own problems. They are going through things that you don’t know. They are human beings. Don’t forget that people are not who you think they are. You don’t even know anything about them. You don’t know what they have. You don’t know anything about their secret lives. Do you? Even if you do, stay away from other people’s lives. Focus on yourself. Do what will get you closer to your dreams. Fight your own fight. Walk your walk. Walk along your own path to wherever you want to go.

Stop comparing yourself to others. No one can be like you. And no one ever will be. Comparing yourself to others can make you unhappy. Comparing your life to other people’s can make you hate what you have. Remember that every day is a gift to change your own life, to walk your talk, to love, to make yourself happy, to pursue your dreams, to grow, not to chase other people’s dreams.

When you wake up in the morning, say to yourself, “Thank God.” Instead of looking at what other people are doing, look at what you are doing. Small or big, still look at it with love. Treat yourself with love.

Whenever you notice that you are comparing yourself to others, quickly remind yourself that you are happy with where you are, with what you do, and with your life. Whenever you catch yourself doing comparing thing, quickly replace it with love. Say to yourself, “I love myself.”

Comparing yourself to others is not the way forward. If you want to go forward in your life, if you want to add value to other people, if you want to add value to your own life, focus on your “why”. Don’t compare. If you have the courage to focus on yourself, you can connect with the real you. When you stop comparing yourself to others, you are able to see, feel what is going on in your inner life.

Live your life. Enjoy your life. Focus on what God has done for you. Focus on what you have, not what you don’t have. Enjoy what you have, not what you don’t have. Again, whenever you catch yourself playing comparison game, bring your thoughts to the present moment. If you can do that for yourself, your life will never be the same again.

Are You Fully Present In The Here And Now

Today matters. Before you start your day, before you leave your house, before you even make your morning coffee, make sure you have one positive thing that you want to get done. You can choose anything. It doesn’t really matter. You know what is important to you. But choose something based on your values, your goals, your dreams, your purpose in life.

You can focus on completing your unfinished project. You can focus on giving people love. You can focus on doing one thing at a time. You can focus on being fully present when you are with someone. The choice is yours.

One positive thing is better than twenty negative things. Doing one thing really well is better than doing so many things poorly. When it comes to task, when it comes to getting your task done, focus on one thing. It is better for you. It is better for your mind. It is better for your growth and development. It is better for your productivity.

When you focus on doing more than one thing at a time, you won’t get what you want. You will not do very well. You will do poorly. Why is that? Because you have divided your attention into so many places. You know that when attention is divided, when you don’t focus your attention on one thing, you will do really poorly.

But you can train yourself to be wherever you are. I think that is the best way to focus on one thing at a time. Just be there. Don’t fly. Do not think about anything. Do not get distracted by what you didn’t do well yesterday. Remember, what you are trying to learn now is what you didn’t do well yersterday. To stop yesterday from happening again, you must experience everything you are doing right now. Be there. Be yourself. Have purpose. Know what you want. Know how to get it.

Whatever you do, wherever you are, be fully present. Be there. Because success happens when we are present. Transformation happens when we are present in the here. Life changes when we are present. The question is, Are you present in the here and now?
