Today’s Topic: COMPARISON (8:55)
Kate got the idea for this episode from a quote she read in her new PowerSheets Intentional Goal Planner from Lara Casey - which guys, I LOVE THIS!!
Comparison is the thief of everything.
“I used to get discouraged when I looked at other wedding magazines. I didn’t have their budgets or their stylists or their prop houses. It was just me and my cat in my tiny apartment. When reading other people’s blogs, I would get depressed by comparing my writing, organizing, or business acumen to theirs. I would see happy couples and though my marriage was improving greatly at the time, I resented all the mess my husband and I had to wade through. Other people were reading large portions of the Bible while I had a hard time reading two paragraphs of an e-mail without getting distracted. Other people were better, faster, smarter, and more successful, and their lives seemed perfect. Ugh! I wanted to be like them.
But, comparison is coveting. Comparison makes me ungrateful. When I want what everyone else has, I am blinded to the blessings right in front of me. Comparison isn’t only the thief of joy; it's the thief of everything. If you are comparing your business, work, kids, marriage, finances, spiritual maturity, smarts, or (fill in what it is for you) to those of any other human being on this earth, you will continue to chase your tail, and you will miss your life. I chase “big” and “more, more, more” and the “the best” and “more followers” and - you get the picture - for way too long. Until all those things I had worked so hard to build by comparing myself to others started to crumble.
Living on purpose turns comparison and coveting into compassion and cheering on. When you are living on purpose, it doesn’t matter what someone else's journey looks like. We are all in this together.”
-Lara Casey. Except from Make It Happen.
• Only let you see what they want to see… even if its the “bad stuff” - EVERYTHING is filtered.
• The gals chat about the reality of have a #fitpregnancy.
• It’s important to stop comparison in its tracks.
Keegan shared this quote that impacted her recently:
IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE, YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR STANDARDS. - Tony Robbins
Kate re-emphasized this part of the quote she had shared at the top of the show:
“Living on purpose turns comparison and coveting into compassion and cheering on. When you are living on purpose, it doesn’t matter what someone else's journey looks like. We are all in this together.” -Lara Casey.
