Comparison is the thief of Joy…
2) What You Are Comparing Against Is Inaccurate Information – A recent study found that people tend to overestimate the presence of positivity in the lives of others, while they misinterpret or fail to detect negative feelings in others. So not only is what’s being delivered an incomplete picture, we tend to distort the information we do receive — a double whammy.
3) It Doesn’t Actually Help You Accomplish Your Goals – Comparison actually zaps motivation and decreases goal completion.
4) It’s A Losing Battle – Just add points #1, #2, #3
