The title of this post is pretty self explanatory to be honest, however it is pretty easy to get caught up on what other people have or what they’re doing rather than your own life. I am not gonna lie, I’m guilty of this on so many levels. I look at others and think damn I’m the same age as them but I’m so far behind, or I’m like I work so hard and it never pays off. It’s the difficult thoughts that go through my head. There are so many reasons why you should focus on your own life and do it your way.
Comparison is the thief of happiness, and I have spoken about this on a regular basis, however you should always do your life your own way. When you see someone who is absolutely killing it, achieving so much in their life and that is where you want to be, use it as motivation to get to where you need to be!
Being online there are lots of people who will want to tear you down, I mean it’s okay to have a difference of opinion, but there is no need to be mean. I’ve had many a time where people have decided it was a good idea to just tear me down for being myself and sharing my thoughts.
In life there will always be someone who has more money than you, has a bigger house than you, who might be better at something than you, but look around you, who is standing by your side? Your family, your friends, your partner, your pets. All while you’re focusing on someone else’s life you’re forgetting how lucky you are.
If you want to get what you want in life, focus on yourself, work hard on your goals, hard work will pay off eventually.
To the people who feel the need to tear others down:
Don’t be cruel, don’t be mean, if you’re not where you need to be right now then continue to work hard, it pays off eventually even if you might not see it straight away.
If you spent more time focusing on your own life, rather than what everyone else is doing, you might get there a little quicker.
Be your own motivation to get to where you need to be. You don’t need to achieve something everyday, I’m not saying that, but what I am saying is if you want something in life you have to go out and get it.
You can do anything you put your mind to.
Just make sure that you focus on yourself rather than what everyone else is doing in life, don’t compare your journey to others. Someone might be at chapter 10 and you at chapter one. There is no comparison that could ever make you feel better.
