Do it your way
Over the last week I have fallen in to the murky world of comparisonitis. It happens from time to time. And it always feels ick.
It usually happens when I am ready to step up to something bigger, bolder, truer. It’s a version of my inner critic saying – are you sure? Do you really think you are good enough?
And so I have a good long chat with that inner critic part of me and hear what it has to say. I have a good old dance around in my bedroom to move the ick feelings out of my body.
And I come back to what’s really important. What am I here for? What’s my mission? What’s my impact? And in answer to the mean – “who the hell are you to” thoughts I answer, “who the hell are you not to?”.
When we are purpose-driven it can feel like nothing is ever enough. That we cannot rest.
That the work is too important, too urgent, the need too great for us to rest and reflect and take stock. And that is when the doubts slip in. Comparisonitis takes hold. That is when it all feels harder. When we just want to throw in the towel.
That is the time to listen and to take some time out to reflect, refocus, replenish and ask, what’s most important?
And remember, nothing compares to you 😉
