I want to share with you a powerful mantra that has helped me to achieve my goals and overcome challenges in my life: "You are your own competition."
I believe we often limit ourselves by comparing our progress and achievements to those around us. Especially in this day in age, we are bombarded with social media and highlight reels. We don't often see the obstacles, failures and constant ebbs and flows of someone else's path to success - whatever it might be in. This might lead to feeling discouraged or demotivated when we see others succeeding in areas where we struggle - not even realizing that same person has probably experienced their own set of challenges! However, this kind of comparison can be detrimental, and it can kill our growth (and well-being) so fast and so furiously.
However, if we can put "blinders" on and focus on getting just 1% better than we were yesterday, we can turn our attention to our own personal progress and improvement. We'll be better at acknowledging our achievements. And, as a result, we'll develop a growth mindset that empowers us to embrace challenges and learn from our mistakes.
I encourage you to embrace the mantra "You are your own competition" and apply it to your own life. Think about your goals and what you want out of life. Whether it's professionally or personally, celebrate your successes and learn from your mistakes, always striving to be better than you were yesterday.
As always, set up a call with me if you would like some guidance or accountablity around your own goals - whatever it might be! As a Holistic Health Coach, I believe it's imporant to look at your life as a whole. We figure out what's missing and fill in the gaps. Most of the time, it's not what you think!
