Today’s Words of Wisdom are from actress Meagan Good and it falls in line perfectly with this comparison demon that a lot of us face regularly.
In this clip, Meagan talks about not comparing her journey to other people’s and refusing to get upset when her life doesn’t go as planned.”I’ve just fixed my mind to say, ‘What’s for me is for me and no one can take it from me. And what’s for someone else is for someone else,” she shared.
Way too often, we get caught up in what other people have or have accomplished, especially when things don’t seem to be panning out for you like you thought they would. All that does is suck out the joy and gratitude we should have over our lives. And honestly, your only competition is this life is yourself. You should be worried about the current opportunities on your plate and getting better at what you do so that when something else comes along, you’ll be ready. So, instead of focusing on what others have, focus on what you have and what you are trying to work on. You’ll be better for it in the long run.
