The thief of joy… comparison


In my last post I spoke to you about confidence and hinted that a large confidence killer is comparison to others.

Today, let’s talk about that.

Have you ever looked at someone, maybe another trainer,  and they come across as sooooo successful and you wonder how you could ever get there, or maybe you think you never could? I know I have.

Then you find yourself feeling kind of lousy?

That’s why Theodore Roosevelt said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.”

I used to compare myself to others ALL the time! And now, sometimes it still creeps in, but it’s nowhere near as bad because I’ve learned so much about it over the years.

I would love your input on the video I did on this – you can watch it here

I would love it if you leave a comment letting me know if you can relate.
