The New Year is truly a magical time. It's a season of letting go of the old and moving forward to something new. Simply put, it's a time of new beginnings. A new beginning to the best YOU that you can be.
On the flip side, this time of year can be somewhat daunting for many. Why is this? Because many are comparing themselves to others. Comparing yourself with others is a dangerous pastime. It literally destroys your self-worth and self-esteem. When you compare yourself to someone else, you are actually saying "I am not good enough. He/she is better than me". And that type of self talk can lead you down the wrong path.
Being inspired by others is a good thing. But there is a fine line between inspiration and comparison. Instead of comparing yourself to others, turn it around and celebrate and express gratitude for them. This will turn that feeling around to something more positive.
Remember, Life is not a sprint, it's a marathon. You are running your own race.
There will always be someone more talented, smarter, good looking, and successful than you. But the good news is there will never be another YOU.
YOU are special.
YOU are unique.
YOU are more than enough.
Think about that!
Those phrases remind me of a blog post I read from a very successful entrepreneur, blogger, and friend (and totally AWESOME guy I might add!), Paul Hutchings. In his blog post, "You, Inc", he inspires us to build the "You, Inc" model. And although he was speaking more in the home business world - this can be applied in our personal lives as well.
In this New Year of 2018, set the intention to Be The Best YOU!!!
