Feel like you're being left behind? [How to stop comparing yourself to others]

Do you ever feel like you're falling behind in life?

One glance over at social media and you can't help but feel like the world is moving so fast and you're just trying to keep up?

Perhaps it's in the area of your career and you feel like everyone has been promoted while you're still trying to get a handle on things...

Or perhaps everyone is moving warp speed in business, growing before your eyes while you're left wondering, should I be doing what they're doing too?

Or maybe it's in the area of relationships, while others getting married and having children, you're feeling heartbroken because you still haven't met 'the one'...

Any of those resonate? 

Feeling like you're falling behind in life is a result of one thing: constantly comparing yourself to others.

And if you've been there, you know it's an icky feeling.

Looking at others successful and lavish lifestyles can truly be inspiring at times because it allows you to daydream about all the things you can create in your life too.

But there is a fine line that when crossed can be harmful. Innocent scrolling through social media can leave you feeling almost like there is no point of even trying because it will be nearly impossible to catch up. Feeling this way is not only unproductive but downright distressing.

So, believe me when I say, the only solution when you've gone that far down the rabbit hole is to stop comparing yourself to others.  But how do you do that?

Well for starters, it takes discipline. Watch today's video where I show you exactly what I do when I catch myself in the comparison trap. 

Key takeaways:

Ask yourself, does looking at this make me feel good?
 If it doesn't feel good: unsubscribe, unfollow and delete. 
If it inspires and energizes you, keep it!
