“If you set your bar at “amazing,” it’s awfully difficult to start.”
Comparing ourselves to others is a double-edged sword.
We always want to learn from our peers and mentors. The inspirational fuel we can draw is endless, and enormously helpful in reaching our goals.
But when we compare ourselves to someone who has already reached their success, it can often leave us feeling like we lack the required resources to get started at all. We see their optimal setup surrounding them, and convince ourselves that we need “that” to get there. It can be dismantling. In a devastating way. Often preventing someone from even trying in the first place.
It’s here we need to fight off the obsession of the perfect setup, and remind ourselves of the single resource that matters: simple, hard, work. If we can become obsessed with just that, the rest tends to just fall into place.
The world-class set of golf clubs doesn’t teach a proper swing. Practice does.
When was the last time you caught yourself comparing yourself to someone else? What were you comparing? How did it make you feel?
