Here are a few ways to stop comparing yourself to others:
- Recognize that everyone’s journey is unique: Everyone has their own set of circumstances, experiences, and challenges. Comparing yourself to others is unfair because you don’t know the full story of their journey.
- Practice gratitude: Shift your focus away from what you lack and instead, focus on what you have. Make a daily habit of writing down things you are grateful for.
- Set your own goals: Set your own personal and professional goals and focus on working towards them.
- Stop following people who make you feel bad about yourself: unfollow or limit your exposure to social media accounts or people that make you feel bad about yourself.
- Practice self-compassion: Be kind and patient with yourself. Remember that everyone makes mistakes and has setbacks.
- Remember that social media is not real life: People often present a curated and filtered version of their life on social media, which can make it easy to compare your own life and fall short.
- Find your own unique strengths and talents: Embrace your unique strengths and talents and focus on developing them.
Remember that self-compassion and self-acceptance are key to stop comparing yourself with others.

The power of partnership – Connected to The Body
We often reach out to give something and provide value OR to get something from someone.
Creating business partnerships can be a great way to expand your reach, access new resources, and achieve common goals. Here are a few steps to help you create effective business partnerships:
- Identify potential partners: Look for businesses or organizations that have complementary products or services, similar values, and a similar target market.
- Research the potential partner: Learn as much as you can about the potential partner, their business model, and their target market.
- Build a relationship: Reach out to the potential partner and start building a relationship. Attend networking events, participate in industry events, or schedule a meeting to get to know them better.
- Identify common goals: Work with the potential partner to identify common goals and how a partnership could help achieve them.
- Develop a partnership agreement: Once you have identified common goals, develop a partnership agreement outlining the terms of the partnership, including the responsibilities of each partner, the duration of the partnership, and any financial arrangements.
- Communicate regularly: Regular communication is crucial to the success of any partnership. Establish regular check-ins or meetings to discuss progress and address any issues that may arise.
- Celebrate successes: Recognize and celebrate the successes of the partnership to maintain a positive relationship.
- Be open to feedback: Be open to feedback and make adjustments as needed. A good partnership is a two-way street, and both parties should be willing to make adjustments to make the partnership work.
Creating a strong business partnership takes time, effort, and commitment. But when done right, it can be a valuable asset for your business.
