Here’s Why You Should Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

  • May 24, 2019

Hey Insider, this is a very short video today as I’m still in Hong Kong. I want to quickly share with you something that I found quite funny and so true.

 

We came here to find that there seems to be an Instagram hotspot in Hong Kong. There are so many Instagrams that it’s crazy, right?

We were looking for this particular building, the one you can see behind me on the video, and we couldn't find it.

 

Now why do you think that was? I can tell you that it wasn’t because we can’t read a map, and we didn’t suddenly lose our eyesight or our sense of direction. I’ve already given you a clue, I’m sure you know.

 

It was because when we physically got to Hong Kong, we had a vision in our minds of what this building should look like, based on what we saw on Instagram!

 

The people who had posted pictures of it online made it look almost unreal, but in reality it looks nothing like that. It is just a normal, plain building.

 

The great message I took away from that is that you should never compare you life to somebody else’s online content. They are only showing a glimpse of their life, not the whole thing, so of course they look unreal and perfect.

 

If you believe the influencers and life coaches you follow online have perfect lives, they haven’t. If you’re trying to be like them and optimise your life to be just like theirs, you are aspiring to live in a mythical land.

 

Remember nobody’s perfect! So stop comparing your life to somebody else’s online, controlled content, which has been carefully edited to show highlights.

 

The only thing you should ever do is wake up each morning and focus on you. Focus on becoming the best version of yourself and the best you can be. Because that's the only thing that truly matters for each of us.

 

Hope you enjoy my video today, my friend. Have a great rest of the day and as always, follow your heart and take action! Go live the life you were truly born to live.
