Stop comparing yourself to others. Be the cream of your own crop

Stop comparing yourself to others. Be the cream of your own damn crop.

Stop comparing yourself to others. Be the cream of your own crop

Stop comparing yourself to others.

Stop the self-judgment.

Stop. Right now.

Ignore the “should’s” and “need to’s” that everyone throws at you in life.

Ignore what everyone else around you is doing.

Ignore the inner voice that looks at your peers and says, “Damn, I’m not there.”

Stop comparing yourself to others.
It’s so freaking easy to compare yourself to what others are doing and how others are “succeeding.” I know. I’ve been there.
But you have no idea what they’re going through. And they have no idea what you’re going through. So only measurement of success in life comes from yourself, because you have a unique story, passion, and struggle in life. You set your own standards.

Your only job in this world is to be the best version of yourself. Period.

The only measurement of success that matters comes from yourself.

If you want to do anything, do it for your own sake and no one else’s.

Set your own standards for your own self and raise yourself up to those.

If you want to save money, save more for your own sake.

If you want to make a big move with your career, do it for your own sake.

If you want to get in shape, get healthy for your own sake.

If you want to be better at something, be better for your own sake.

And stop comparing yourself to others.

The only measurement of success that matters is yours, because you’re the only “you” there is.

You have a unique story. You have a history with money unlike anyone else’s in the world. You have special skills and talents and dreams that no one else shares. And you have struggles in life that are different than everyone’s around you.

So your only job is to hold yourself up to your own standards, and be the best “you” there is.

Be the uniquely special, awesomely hard-working, most glorious version of you that you can be.

Wake up each morning and be the “you” you want to be that day.

Stop comparing yourself to others.

Be the cream of your own damn crop :)

    I love this! I often compare myself to others and it can get bad quickly. It’s easy to get down, but I am starting to choose to be inspired and realize we all have our own timelines and our own unique qualities.

    Hi Stephanie,

    Great blog. Was listening to Wayne Dyer talk about a similar topic and he said not only does the self actualizing person not compare herself/himself to others, that in fact they don’t even notice what others are doing. They are so busy being and doing and trusting in what they know is best for them that they don’t even notice that what they are doing may not be good enough for someone else. Your post definitely reminded me of this and something Im going to start living by after spending too much of my younger life caring about what others thought of me. Now I know the only opinion that matters is the one I have of myself. Good luck to you and keep up the great posts!

    This is a great topic; many individuals are comparing their finances to other’s financial status that they don’t face the reality of their own money. Many can start with improvements of their credit score and finding out what’s in their full credit report at Quizzle.
