Comparison is the Thief of Joy
"Comparison is the Thief of Joy". Why must we always compare ourselves to others. It's not greener over there, that's just AstroTurf (if you're a Millennial or iGen you might have to Google 'AstroTurf').
This #fbf I recall a conversation with a 27 yr old that was disappointed in her career progress and it was a real eye opener to me. The tone a bit heartbreaking actually. So with 35-40 years remaining in her career, she was defeated because she wasn't progressing as fast as others. She was broken because she only had a couple years left to get to that network morning show host seat in NYC before she was aged out.
In order to leverage OUR strengths we first need to stop comparing ourselves to others and the unrealistic expectations created by agents, ego, and fame, all of which is exacerbated by social media. By leveraging your strengths and not to continue to focus on your perceived weaknesses as compared to other’s social media, you'll reach higher and farther in a long fruitful (and timeless) career.
On a Friday morning late last year I sat down with insightful radio talk show host Sandy Waters to talk about creating a long prosperous career.
