“You’d never be jealous of someone if you knew who you were. You would never want someone else’s gift if you knew why you were alive.” – Bill Johnson
What a riveting quote, right?
When you read it what comes to mind for you?
For me it was one of the most powerful, bold, and liberating quotes I had heard in a very long time.
I remember saying, “Did he really just say that?”
…Have you ever compared yourself to another woman?
It’s not a great feeling!
It’s from the chains of comparison that we unnecessarily elevate ourselves higher than we ought to -or condemn ourselves if we don’t feel like we are quite making the mark.
Comparison can lead to jealousy, resentment, bitterness and can land you in a place of false empowerment if you’re not careful.
We compare body shapes and our looks, cars, clothes, success, status…and skin color…as we are reminded by the reality of our current events locally and around the globe due to the fight for racial justice.
Well, I was never comfortable in my own skin and grew up comparing myself to everyone. In my 30s I went to work doing my inner game soul work, knowing that comparison was the thief of joy, authentic confidence, a sense of personal empowerment and so much more.
It’s why I ❤️ that authentic identity is at the center of my body of work. …
With the honesty of this personal struggle, and as a personal brand/style consultant & life coach, what I know to be true is this: If you want to up level your personal and professional success, you must break the chains of #comparison.
Opening with a vulnerable story of how my jealously almost got the best of me, I was honored to speak about this topic at Bettina Carey’s Women’s Empowerment Summit earlier this month. Catch the replay above.
