The world has become so competitive and lots of people in your field are amazing at what they do. It's very easy to get caught up in inferiority. There was a time I actually stopped blogging because I felt my blog did not measure up. I even considered shutting it down completely because I felt "it wasn't good enough."
Even in our everyday lives, it's so easy to get caught up in the comparison game when we see our age mates/colleagues excelling and we feel like life is just passing us by. I'm here to tell you this afternoon that you should STOP IT. It's easier said than done but I believe constantly comparing yourself to others is really unhealthy. It breeds self doubt and eats at your confidence. If you're like me, it just makes you paranoid because you think everyone is comparing you to someone else the way you're comparing yourself.
In the Blogger Spotlight interview , Alma said something that really stuck with me: "Use other bloggers as a source of inspiration as opposed to measurement of success." This is applicable to all areas of our lives. Use successful people as inspiration to better yourself. There's no need using someone else as a measure of your success. Look at what these successful people are doing and see if you can learn something that'll be useful to you. I'm not saying copy them o but there's no harm in drawing inspiration from someone else .
As I said before, it's not very easy . But if you focus on doing you and bettering yourself, you won't even have the time to compare yourself to others. One of my mottos in life is "DO YOU." Trust me, it is so worth it. As cliche as this sounds, remember that you're amazing and you will do amazing things as long as you focus on improving yourself. Have a great week! xx
PS: If you didn't know already, I post twice a week. Mondays and Fridays to be exact .
