Have you ever caught yourself thinking things like....
“What’s wrong with my body? Why can’t I look like him/her?”
“If only I could look like...”
“If only I could lift like...”
“Why can they eat whatever they want + not gain weight?”
Jealousy boasts a never-ending wheel of comparisons that do more than jeep us stuck. The wrong kind of comparisons move us away from our goals.
We realize how easy it is to get stuck in the myths of “If only...” + “Why can’t I...?” but here’s the thing: life is a unique journey + process for us all. When it comes down to it, comparing your beginning to someone else’s middle or end, you won’t get very far.
With eyes constantly on everyone else’s “better-than” it won’t matter how many milestones you are hitting, because they will always be hitting a “better one.”
At Pride Programming, we want the comparisons to be with ourselves. We’ve built that into our training programs by keeping meticulous notes on all of our clients goals/milestones. We do this to help you remember + visualize your progress!
It’s also a reminder to trust the process + believe in yourself.
We know comparisons will happen, it’s life, but rather than getting stuck on the never-ending wheel, let them inspire you to keeping pushing!
You are on your own journey, just like they are + we are all a different breed of strong.
