Yeppp… you read that right.
Just like failure can be used for good, to help you grow, learn, improve, comparison can be a good thing too.
I think that we always will compare ourselves in some shape or form. So instead of resisting and pushing it away and trying not to, let’s embrace it. Let’s use it as fuel to our fire! 🔥
We get to choose how we use comparison.
We can be threatened and feel jealous when comparing ourselves…
We can be ✨inspired✨ by others!
It’s all a mindset. It’s thinking differently.
When I start to compare myself to people I follow or see doing really amazing and incredible things, I tell myself this affirmation…
“If she can do it, I can do it.”
Now, let’s be honest. There are plenty of times I’ve been scrolling on Instagram (the scroll hole) and I’ve started to get into threatened-jealous-icky comparison mode.
So, figure out what triggers those feelings and create boundaries (avoid those).
➡️ Limit your time on social media
➡️ Set an intention for using your social media
➡️ Spend less time with certain friends, and more with the ones that make you feel good
Lastly, when you’re in that threatened-jealous-icky comparison mode, get into gratitude mode instead.
Think about the things you are grateful for in your life. This will give you some perspective and in a different mindset.
Use comparison for the good!
What and when do you compare yourself? Let’s work on it together!
Keep on keepin’ on,
