Positively Living: Do Less, Live More... Breathe Easier.
The Helpful and Harmful Sides of Comparison
Show Notes

The topic of comparison is one that is seen and discussed everywhere–we’ve discussed it on the podcast in a variety of conversations–but we haven’t discussed it directly and it’s time. I see too many clients and friends suffering because of it and allowing it in where it doesn’t belong. This week, episode 113 of the Positively Living Podcast is about the helpful and harmful sides of comparison! 

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of understanding both sides of comparison and actionable steps you can take right now when comparison is no longer helpful or inspiring. 

I cover the following topics:

  • What is comparison and how we use it to make decisions in our daily lives.
  • The number one pitfall of comparison and how you can avoid it.
  • How person-to-person comparison gives us inaccurate data that drags us down.
  • Steps can you take now to maximize the helpful side of comparison and minimize the harmful.

When it comes to sharing ideas and choosing what works best for you, comparing can be really useful as long as you compare accurately and appropriately. But more often than not, comparison leads to dissatisfaction. 

As a multi-passionate creative, you are meant to design and share your gifts with the world. Please don’t let comparison not only rob you of your joy but rob the world of your gifts too.
