What We Discuss in this Episode:

  • Take The Achiever’s Compass for a personalized report of how you can start finding joy in the journey.
  • As achievers, we are wired to ‘win.’ There is an upside – more money, more vacations, more opportunities. However, if we don’t stop comparing our success to others, we will never be able to find joy.
  • Comparison forces you to constantly raise to goal. No matter how much you have, there will always be someone else who has more.
  • Social media has aggravated this issue, inundating us with constant reminders of other people who have outachieved you. But you don’t have to let this take control of your life.
  • Consider redefining success this way: Your ability to utilize your unique talents, build meaningful relationships with people you care about, and live in the moment.
  • Embrace your uniqueness. Recognize the fact that there are paths you do want to take, and do not want to take, in light of that uniqueness.
  • Stop and recognize when you do it. Don’t try to stop doing it altogether, because it’s impossible to repress the initial thought.
  • Live gratefully, give generously. It is difficult to compare yourself negatively to others when you are truly grateful for what you have.
