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.

Wherever You Are, Be There

Wherever you are, be there. You are where you are for a reason. Don’t ignore it, explore it. We don’t see what is around us because we are too busy to see it, to enjoy it. You are too busy to enjoy your wife. You are too busy to enjoy your life. You are too busy to read more books. You are too busy to take care of your body. You are too busy to go to your best friend’s birthday.

When are you going to slow it down?

It is time to slow down. It is time to evaluate your life. Why? Because if you don’t check what you are doing to yourself, to your life, to the people around you, you will continue with your busy life. Before you do anything, before you take on a new assignment, ask yourself, “Is it necessary?” Do not just do something to look good. Do something because it is necessary, but not urgent. Stop living your life on the road. Slow it down.

Slow your busyness down. If you want to live a better life, you must give yourself a full attention. When you are with yourself, be there. When you are with your wife, be there. When you are playing with your children, be there. When you are eating, just eat. When you are working, be there. Because every moment is important. Every moment is special. Enjoy it.

Spend quality time with yourself. Spend quality time with your soul. Do not take on more than you can do. Do not take on what you cannot do. Do not promise people what you don’t have. It is better. Take time to rest, to think, to read, to just connect with nature. Remember, you are not going to be here forever, so enjoy every moment of your life. Start now.
