Comparison is your greatest teacher
So you’re scrolling the Gram and BAM, there it is
Susan with her recent engagement
Karen in her new $50K Mercedes
Becky on her 3 month vacation in Bali
Cheryl announcing her 4th pregnancy
Whatever it is for you, you know the feeling
It makes you want to throw your phone & hide from the world
Here’s the thing, sis
Those triggers…are actually working in your FAVOR, not against you
When jealousy bubbles up in your throat & your jaw clenches…I want you to stop resisting & instead embrace it
Know that the jealously you feel for Becky is cuz she’s representing the unexpressed version of yourself
Rather than hating on people who seem to ‘have it all,’ ask yourself
What have THEY created that my heart desires?
Lean into that trigger & ask yourself what it really means?
What do THEY have that I know I am capable of?
What steps can I take right now to stop playing small & go get what I desire?
Jealousy isn’t fun for anyone. I find myself feeling it most when I’m vulnerable & insecure
And I might stay here for a little bit & wallow. But instead I don’t stay here for 6 months, I stay here for 1 evening
I feel the pain, embody it, understand it, give myself grace for indulging in it & then immediately come up with a plan to up-level
I found that feeling the damn feeling was the 1st secret
The 2nd secret is using that pain as motivation to TAKE ACTION
The 3rd secret is expressing genuine gratitude for the people who triggered me
Understanding that this trigger is the exact pain I need to motivate myself to step up & live the life I know I’m capable of, to stop playing small, to stop blaming everyone else & actually take responsibility
Mmmm so good, so empowering
Triggers & ‘negative’ emotions have been my most trusting & dependable guides
When I’m hurting I know that if I do the work, something BIG is just on the other side. Analogous to enduring a long winter & anticipating an early Spring
Today’s challenge is to FIRST notice yourself comparing, SECOND is to lean into that feeling, and THIRD decide HOW you can use it for massive growth and transformation
Anyone else feel me on this?
