10 Powerful Reminders For When You Start Comparing Yourself To Other People

We all have compared ourselves to some other person/people at least once in our lives.

Forget Yourself To Find Yourself

You’re looking to consolidate your gains. Only a crazy person would invest time, energy — true sweat equity — into something only to abandon it for no good reason. I’d come so far in getting into a daily regimen of writing, being a full-time business student and on my way to becoming a certified coach, working toward my first startup and moving forward toward publishing my first book.

The Uplifting Power Of Perspective

The Uplifting Power Of Perspective

The more I grow up, the wider my perspective seems to get. Like a camera lens that re-focuses from a narrowly defined macro shot out to a wider-angled view of life.

In my naïveté, I used to take a my-way-is-the-highway approach to everything, sharing opinions from soap boxes in my relationships and in my writing. And even now seeing life through a broad lens doesn't come naturally to me.
