I saw something the other day that made me glad for the author but worked like a lance of irritation in my gut. They shared about some fantastic sales numbers they got in one month. I felt myself slip into the "comparison zone." This is a dangerous place to be, especially when things aren't going so well. After a brief "I'm doing this whole frigging thing wrong!" moment, I yanked myself from there (with the help of some delicious rainbow sherbet) and back on the solid ground that is my path.
That's what I had to remember, what is important to bear in mind: My path is my own.
Someone else may seem like positive results are coming easily for them. For a handful, it is, but not for most that have success coming out of their ears. Overnight success usually takes a lot of blood, sweat, tears, rejection, and sacrifice... and not simply overnight.
My path has been filled with some interesting twists and turns, particularly this year. But it's mine. I've got to make the best of the highs and the lows.
Have you ever slipped into "comparison zone?" If so, what are some things you do to deal?
