Three Reasons why you must stop comparing yourself to others

Do you want to reach your full potential and become all you were created to be? Then you must stop comparing yourself to others.

Here are three reasons why you should stop comparing yourself to other people.

1) You will always be more than others. No matter your condition and where you are in life, you are more than other people. Even when you think you don’t have shoes, you will meet those who don’t have legs. When you say that it is hard to live on $100 a day, you will meet those who live on less than a dollar a day. No wonder Paul, the apostle, gave this admonition:

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,  not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. Philippians 2:3-4

2) You will always have people who are more than you. Now is the time to face the truth; there will always be somebody richer, faster, smarter, and more connected than you. Pick any area of your life and compare yourself to others, and you will realize that there is somebody who is ahead of you. It does not matter how good you are. That’s why you must stop comparing yourself to other people. When you compare yourself to other people and realize that they are more successful than you, it may discourage you. Stop this negative comparison, and you will reach your full potential

3) You are not in competition with other people. The competition is not against other people, and it will never be. The simple reason is that we are all uniquely gifted and have different assignments. Why would you want to do somebody’s job when you are not equipped to do it? No wonder many are discouraged, frustrated, and unhappy. You should measure yourself against what you have already done. This is the right baseline to see how far you have come. Can you beat yesterday’s record? Can you outdo what you accomplished last year?

The IEM APPROACH is a holistic way of life; the physical and spiritual must be in synergy for real, lasting, and sustainable success.
