Compete with yourself and always win
I have a firm belief that when we step into competitive energy with others we set ourselves up to fail every single time. Why you might ask? Well what is to be gained by competing against someone else when there isn't a level playing field to start with?
If you're up for it, take a moment to ponder this:
No one else has lived your identical experience ~ they may have had similar experiences but the way they have internalised those experiences comes from a different reference point to yours.
Why do you want to compete against someone else anyway?
How did you feel last time you competed against someone else? Did you fist pump and jump around feeling like you 'won'? Or did you feel like crap because you 'lost'?
What if you gave yourself permission to be like a flower?
What would it take for you to give yourself permission to bloom and be YOU?
Because the thing is, there is not a second version of you. YOU are it! So why not make the most of being you and enjoy this amazing life you've been given?
