Slippery Slope

Happy Fathers Day to all of you dads out there! I had some fun with family today and then continued to work hard. I attempted to get outside for a while to enjoy the weather and catch some fish. Unfortunately, it was 90 degrees plus over seventy percent humidity…not the best day to be outdoors.

I’m going to mention something that I believe everyone struggles with. Comparisons. It is so easy to compare yourself to everyone around you, especially those that you believe are better off than you are. Although it is a natural thing to do, it often gets out of hand and you become obsessive.

Paying attention to every detail about said person, trying to figure out what they do to be successful and then ultimately putting yourself down for not being the exact same as they are. It’s so hard to realize that just because someone else is doing well at one thing, that doesn’t mean that you have to be the same or do the same things that they do in order to be successful.

There are so many different ways to succeed in life and as far as I’m concerned, as long as you’re happy, you’re successful. One of the keys to actually being happy though is to put down your measuring tape, stop obsessing over others success, and do something that fulfills you. Once you begin focusing on yourself and the stuff that you’re doing, that’s when you get noticed for your unique style and product.

I’m not trying to preach to you or shame you for comparing yourself. I do this on a daily basis and I am trying so hard to stop. Sometimes what it takes it to physically remove yourself from situations that allow you to compare yourself. Once you regain your confidence and personal style, then you can begin to engage those situations once again. That’s the process that works best for me and allows me to stay motivated and happy.

What do you guys do to prevent comparisons?

Also, if you want to keep up with my latest venture….

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me. I’m looking forward on your next put up, I’ll try to get the grasp of it!
