There is no way I could do as much I as do if I didn’t love what I do
But even with this?
I still get days where I think
“can I really do this?”
Maybe I have piled loads of pressure on myself
Almost like “I should do xyz”
Because I saw someone else do it..
Then we get down and disheartened.
But you know what?
Getting out this starts by taking a simple step to:
STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHER PEOPLE.
most success is OVER EXAGGERATED
and… MORE IMPORTANTLY
We are all different.
I have two kids now, right?
a single guy who has more time on his hands than me…
He probably will get more done than me…
The thing is, this overwhelm we can feel
Will often come from expectations that we put on ourselves
Based on judgement on others
Of their life…
And I’m not saying ‘avoidance’ is the right strategy
It never is
When it comes to any overwhelm or fear
(as I found out with pubic speaking)
You see, you don’t always have to be DOING it all…
You just need to be doing.
And be aware of what you have learnt..
It’s why it annoys me when people put others down for trying to lose weight doing something
They don’t agree with…
As long as they take what they learned from it?
This is key
As they now know what doesn’t work.
Which gives you more clarity
For what does work for you
The way you feel…
So I guess I can sum it up with an old school quote from
Mark Twain (I think he’s said a few quotes…)
“Comparison is the death of joy”
You’re supposed to be happy.
Comparison does no-one any favours.
PLEASE… stop comparing your life, body, what you should be doing…
With someone else
