Teddy’s right… but are YOU gettin’ it right?!

Motivational Speaker, AmyK discusses how comparison is the thief of joy.

Comparison is the best way to feel awesome about yourself,” said no brilliant human being. Ever.

“I start with a few minutes of surfing the internet every day to just prove to myself how richer and thinner I could be. There’s no shortage of posts of private jets, hammocks on beaches, muscular bodies and lives that could be mine. I mean, if I wasn’t living my life.”

Many of the self-help folks are very good at reminding me to turn my frown upside down. I know at some point they’ll tell me how.”

Jane

 

“I love Instagram. It makes me feel so bad about myself that I have to get up and go for a walk just to let out all my pent up frustration and shame. Increased exercise is one of my big goals this year.”

Sue

 

Teddy Roosevelt once famously said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.”

Don’t just nod in agreement, shout “Truth!,” and then go back to doing exactly what he asked you not to do.

Take action.

First, answer this question: How might I experience more joy my way?

Second, go get you some joy.

Hugs,
