About This Episode

In this era of social media and having an overload of information at our fingertips, it’s hard not to constantly compare yourself to others. It’s hard to see all of the vacation pictures, the couple pictures and everyone’s seemingly perfect lives on display. However, what we don’t always realize is that we’re comparing our behind the scenes to someone else’s highlight reel. People only publish things they want you to see and we need to remember that. I truly believe that comparison is the thief of joy and that’s why in today’s episode I give you 7 ways to stop comparing yourself to others and tips on how to define your own personal success.
