𝐀𝐑𝐄 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐃𝐘 𝐓𝐎 𝐄𝐍𝐃 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐂𝐎𝐌𝐏𝐀𝐑𝐈𝐒𝐎𝐍 𝐆𝐀𝐌𝐄?
My team for #SHINE left yesterday after us being together for 4 days and we were talking about how deeply rooted, rampant and ALIVE comparisonitis is in the world today and what we want to do about it!
We compare ourselves to perfect strangers on the internet, the girl at the coffee shop, the grocery store, AND worst of all .. we do it with our OWN friends. Is she thinner, fitter, sexier or more successful than me? If so, then I can't support her, I can't like her posts, encourage her, celebrate her, buy her courses, products, download her podcasts, & I certainly can't share her brilliant work because that will only mean that she's better than me. Ever felt or behaved that way?
Nothing has changed my life more than realizing that it’s a waste of time & energy to compare my worthiness against others & fight to have them "see" & support me, because guess what? They can't!
We all struggle, go through hard things, yet, society tells us we have to keep it hidden & can't support another because it will mean less for us. It's not true! That's scarcity thinking & we live in an abundant universe.
My entrepreneurial journey has been a challenge when it came to friendships. For awhile I didn't feel safe or supported. The truth is I had to keep growing & evolving myself to meet the right people who could meet ME. My tribe today are a complete reflection of my evolution. They are supportive, brave, truthful, compassionate, LOVING, successful, FOR each other.
Its time to realize that a bigger slice for someone doesn’t mean a smaller slice for you. We gotta rewrite those rules! Old rule: Support Stangers. Create followers. New rule: Lead with authenticity. Collaboration over competition.
This is why I've created SHINE! Because we're not meant to go at this alone & it's time to unite instead of divide.
It's time to connect, share, support, BE, give, receive, respect, play AND SHINE together.
Your smaller self will always say - I'll never be like them - but I'm here to remind you that no one will ever be you! Come SHINE on Sept 27th. Link in bio. 🌟
