What (Really) goes into comparison that works

Here’s what really matters

ILLUMINATION

I have good and bad news for you. The bad news is that you are the only person responsible for your life. The good news is that you are the only person responsible for your life.

I’ll explain this better with a metaphor. Imagine you’re between 4 walls and outside it’s raining. Every time the rain touches a wall, it hurts you. But you have 5 windows with a filter. Water can get inside your walls but that filter will ask you whenever you want something from the outside to enter your walls.

Now, let’s substitute.

The walls are your body.

The rain outside is the reality.

The 5 windows are your 5 senses.

The filters are your interpretation of reality.

Our filters modify everything we see in life. We’re all different, so we must never compare ourselves to others.

Why comparison is bad

“I’ll never manage to be as slim as…” “That man had born into a family of wealth, that’s why he has so much success”

Excuses and lies.

Everyone is different. Don’t compare. God made us all different.

No more excuses. The only one that can save your life is you. Get your ass off that chair and start caring about your finances, your body, and your future.

We have only one life and it is slipping away. Keep that in mind.

Why comparison is good

Let’s take the examples I gave to explain this. Comparison is good sometimes.

“I’ll never be as slim as…”

But when you look at his struggle to arrive there, you’ll feel motivated.

“That man had born into a family of wealth, that’s why he has so much success”

It might be true, but is it an excuse to you, really?

Just work. May you outplay him.

CONCLUSION

Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost.

Work, work and work again.

Don’t compare to others, but if you decide to do it, do it the right way.

You are worth more than a simple comparison.
