Comparison conversations often lack the comparison. My way is better, his business is better, she has a better job, and they have a better house, car, boat, and life. There’s more, this tastes better, these shoes are more comfortable, and her hair looks better. Compared to what?
Some comparisons occur because of the difference of what we have, want, or need. Other comparisons come with the price of judgment, bias, and envy. Still other comparisons are believed to measure health, wealth, or happiness. Compared to what?
Discovering your success may be a comparison, but it should always be compared to your goal.
