Your help to sustainable health and redesigning your body
Allow your self to be inspired, but don’t compare your self!
Today I had a great meeting with a new acquaintance. We talked about life, business and health. It was inspiring. One thing we talked about was the importance of inspiration, of surrounding yourself with people who are better than you at certain things. This is something I’ve always done. I’ve never understood why people prefer to work with people who know less and are less inspiring than they are.
However, there was one thing I got wrong. Several times. I started comparing my self with them. Now, if I’d compared myself on all levels and all qualities, it probably wouldn’t have been a problem as we are all great at some things and less great at others. Unfortunately I only compared myself on the qualities that were their strong once and of course, always fell short.
This made me constantly feel I should do better, be better and achieve more. I found it hard to see my own accomplishments and even more difficult to see my own strengths. And as achieving was the only way for me to exist, it was like always being in an uphill battle. Never having a chance of “winning”.
Nowadays, I try not to compare myself. I still gather excellent, inspiring, glorious stars around me, but I allow them to be the stars that they are without bringing myself down.
The thing is, we never know someone else’s history. Their battles.Their processes. We simply don’t know, so how can we compare?
I believe that it’s crucial to find inspiration and people who inspire you, but allow them to be just that: Inspiration, not competition.
It might sound like a cliché, but it really is true: Nobody is as good as you are at being you. And you are born greatness!
