Why You Should Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

Why You Should Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

It is a norm that we will always try to compare something with another. However, when you compare it is never fair. We should never ever make comparisons of our own success and achievement with that of others. Others are always either a thermostat or a thermometer, an echo, or perhaps the origin of the voice. To compare is never justified and hence comparison is odious. Just strive to be yourself!

Why You Should Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

Pat Riley said it best, "Do not let other people tell you what you want." The irony is, a lot of us grow up either being compared (by our parents) to a yardstick or you are the yardstick. It is good to have a role model but never take anybody's else definition of success as your own. Otherwise, you will end up just as an initiation at best. Remember: Imitation is limitation-stop being a carbon copy of others.

Every man must do two things alone.

He must do his own believing and his own dying.

~Marthin Luther~

I am sure you have heard of the old saying, "You have to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather is." Your genetic lottery can only do so much. Our destiny is not crafted based on the experience or beliefs of others, right? So stop wasting your time judging and comparing yourself to others. When you do so, you actually stutter your own progress and inhibit your desire to move forward.

How to stop comparing yourself with others

Comparison is odious

Should you believe that you are doing slightly better than the average John Doe or Jane Doe, then you are just another average person. No disrespect to anybody but do you really want to be compared to someone merely mediocre only? Do not dwell on other weaknesses of others. It is time to live our own life instead of everybody's life. You can Cynthia Kersey strategy for success to be unique and a standout when compared to your peers.

Cyhthia Kersey's Recipe For Success:

  1. Consult Management: If your management hate your idea, then proceed with it; If they like the idea, recosider.
  2. Hire Market Researcher: If they say the idea is doomed for failure, then it will be successful.
  3. Never question how much your idea will cost you and never worry about how much profit it will generate.
  4. When everyone around you (family, friends, colleagues etc.) says your idea is ridiculous, then you know it will be an amazing hit!

Apparently, these strategies listed above has been adopted by one of the greatest entertainment empire in history. He was a high school dropout with basically no business acumen but his beliefs have allowed him to create his incredulos success. His name was Walt Disney. Be unique and dare to be different. We become what we are by the radical and deep-seated refusal of that which others have made of us.

Every single time you do any comparison of yourself with others, you will either end up bitter or in vain as there will always be many who are doing far better than you and there are also of course those who are lesser compared to what you have achieved. Essentially, when you compare you will be frustrated and it provides little to no proof of anything.

Live Your Own Life Do not compare yourself with others

Do not be a slave in someone else's life

Stop wasting your time and energy, comparing yourself to others. What happens in another person's life has not impact and no effect on yours. Stop keeping score for others so that your life will be more fun and meaningful (for you). Remember that anything out of your circle of influence does not affect your success of failure. So do what you do best and stop worrying about what others are going to do. You have to create your own system or plan or you risk being enslaved by someone else's.

"Are you motivated by what you really want out of life,

or are you mass-motivated?"

~Earl Nightingale~

The purpose that God has intended for you is never a matter of consensus of public opinion. A wise man makes his own judgement, while an ignorant fool will be led by the majority. Stop banking on others for your own security. Forge your own destiny. Do not trip yourself to suit everybody or you will end up being whittled away. So stop comparing your place or plan with that of others. Comparison is never fair and it is time to live your own life.
