Stop Comparing!Aug 30, 2021
How many times have you felt like you were competing or comparing yourself against a teammate, co-worker, friend, or maybe even a family member and became angry, jealous, or resentful over an issue that was outside of your control?
The incident consumed you and ultimately resulted in your inability to focus, impaired judgement, loss of clarity, and maybe even physical health challenges.
Comparing yourself or competing unnecessarily with others and obsessing is a never-ending pursuit that only results in wasted energy, frustration, bitterness, and anger, all of which are negative and destructive emotions. Often, those who lack maturity are the source of these dangerous and unhelpful comparisons and competitions because of their need to be right, or perceived by others as having the answer.
It is important that we observe and learn from others, but don’t compare or obsess. This notion sounds contradictory or conflicting, and is to a degree, but the difference is the perspective and “constructive vs. destructive” effect it has on our lives.
Watching and learning from others is necessary and leads to growth, improvement, and increases our ability to meet our goals and serve others. We cross the unhealthy threshold when these comparisons and competitions become destructive causing us to think negatively and in an uncontrolled manner.
Simply put, stop comparing! Learn from others in a healthy and constructive manner, and focus on what you control, not what you don’t.
