020: Running the Race of Comparison

podcast purpose Jan 13, 2020

In life and leadership, we all have temptations to compare ourselves to others.

There is an infinite number of categories upon which we can compare ourselves and an almost infinite number of people to compare ourselves to.

With how flooded we are by social media, it’s easier than ever to constantly find someone “better” to compare ourselves to, which only serves to make us feel bad about ourselves.

Once we begin down that road, we never find an end.

The tendency to compare ourselves to others is as human as any other emotion. But it is a decision that only steals joy from our lives. 

How then, might we break free from this habit of comparison?

In this raw, candid episode of the CourageToLead Podcast, Shawn Lovejoy gives his unfiltered thoughts on comparison and provides some healthy alternatives to this “thief of joy.”
