You may not even realize you are doing this. You find yourself reading about your peers and colleagues on Facebook, Instagram or any other social media platform and feeling totally inadequate, almost jealous of their success. You have fallen victim to the dreaded “comparison bug.” You are only human after all. But this comparison serves no one, least of all yourself. By comparing yourself to others and their “accomplishments” you find yourself looking at your own lack of accomplishments and therefore feeling like a failure.
I am here to tell you this. You have no idea what that person has gone through to achieve that success. You have no idea the money they spent to get there. The tears they cried along the way, nor the many failures they faced and experienced in getting there. Who really knows what goes on behind closed doors? They are putting their best foot forward on social media.
Focus on this instead. Make your plan for the upcoming week. Set goals, realistic ones, so that your sense of accomplishment is rewarded. Manifest what you want to see happen and then take the steps to make it happen. Manifesting is not just imaging and believing things will happen, but also in taking positive forward steps and actions to help manifest those goals. And finally, STOP comparing yourself to what others are doing. Instead, celebrate their wins with them. It’s a beautiful feeling to support another woman in her accomplishment. Because your time will come when women will acknowledge your success and accomplishments. Your vibe attracts your tribe.
Every successful person has experienced failure. The difference between the successful and the not so successful is that the successful people move forward. They brush themselves off, get up and just take the next step. They see the value of the lesson they learned from their “failure” It’s ok to fail forward, in fact, it is a must.
Know this. You have started on a path to becoming the person you have always wanted to be. The confident, successful, woman. The woman who is secure and happy in her career, or the woman that is the kick-ass entrepreneur! So now go find her and stop comparing yourself. I am sure you will love who you see.
To your success.
With much Love
