This rule would have saved me from a lot of heartaches and questioning my self-worth.
I’m 100% confident that your mental health will shoot up to the moon if you follow this rule.
This one rule will eliminate your feelings of being left out, behind, and depressed. And possibly help you break free of the mental-health-draining-grip that social media apps have you in.
This rule is in Jordan Peterson’s book, The 12 Rules For Life. I have MDK Project candidates read this book to help them change their mindset and belief patterns.
The rule is…
Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today.
Read that again.
And then read it again to make sure it gets seared into your brain.
Why? Because your happiness, joy, and purpose depend on it.
What you see on social media is a highlight reel of the best stuff that people have done. Kinda like what you see on ESPN after the big game.
I used to compare myself to these highlights, and then have the wind taken out of my sails.
Comparison robs you blind from seeing how far you’ve come.
It robs you of seeing all the progress you’ve made.
I don’t want you to fall into this trap.
And it’s why I’m telling you to only compare yourself to who you were yesterday and nothing else!
At the end of the day, it’s YOU vs. YOU.
It’s NOT you vs. Chad.
It’s NOT you vs. Jess.
So put on the blinders and focus on yourself.
PS. The next MDK Project begins in less than two weeks, and its one of our largest classes yet. 30+ men will start, and 30+ will not finish. It will probably be due to some type of comparison, and looking out further than within themselves. If you want to equip the tools that will quiet the outer noise, and stop the comparison to become a true winner internally. Read up on The Project by clicking here, and apply to possibly fill our November Class or February’s Class.
