In my coaching and consulting business, I often have clients who are disgruntled by the fact that “it’s not working FAST enough” or that they aren’t achieving as much “success” as someone else they know. When I work with people in our health and wellness coaching, I run into this even more often.
Why is it that people always feel the need to compare themselves with others around them?
And, even further, why do people so often fail to consider that they may well be comparing their beginning to someone else’s middle?
Here’s the deal folks….
Trying to keep up with “The Joneses” is a losing proposition, because it is very likely that Mr. and Mrs. Jones are being eaten alive by debt trying to maintain the illusion of a life that looks really great on the outside, but is a literal PRISON on the inside.
People who are not willing to pay the price and do whatever it takes to achieve their goals look for ways to shortcut the system.
They over leverage themselves to buy a bigger house, a better car, a cooler watch, more toys, private schools for the kids, pretty sparkly jewelry…
And at the end of the day they find themselves suffocated by their “stuff” without any good options.
When you can barely pay your credit card bill’s minimum payment, how do you EVER find financial peace?
If you find yourself in such a situation and suddenly face losing your job, what kind of panic does that instill?
I refuse to compare myself with anyone.
Sure, there are plenty of people who have more toys than I do, more square footage, what have you…
But when push comes to shove, I have a life that feels good on the inside, not just looks good on the outside…
I have options…
I have PEACE!
