Reseller Tips 13 • Stop Comparing
Many years ago at a blogging conference in Austin (Texas Style Council, anyone??), a speaker included the now-possibly-overused quote in her speech: Comparison is the thief of joy. How true is it though, babes?? In literally every aspect of your life you can face impostor syndrome or low self esteem because you see someone else’s life and wish yours was like it. This is something I’ve been working on for a while and I’m not perfect, maybe 70%, but it has saved me probably tens of thousands of dollars and almost as many hours of stress. Now I do believe a little comparison can be a good thing. It inspires you to create something new or to be better than you were yesterday. But if we spend our days wanting what others have, we will never appreciate what we do have. So maybe you see folks on social media posting about how many sales they made this weekend, or a trip they went on, and you feel crummy about it. I suggest you reframe the comparison in a way that inspires you!
