During college, whenever I got a test grade back from a professor, the first thing I wanted to know was which of my classmates did worse than me on the exam. As soon as I found someone who received lower marks than mine, I always felt better about myself. Conversely, I felt awful if I thought I’d come in the lowest.
Whenever I compare the results of my choices to the results of someone else’s choices and give that comparison meaning, I have just created an untruth. And then believed it.
Too often we get caught up in someone else’s business and neglect our own. My choices have nothing to do with anyone else’s choices. Whatever someone else thinks of me is none of my business, just like whatever I think of someone else is none of their business.
Tell yourself a truth: the quality of my life is a direct result of the power of my thinking. Be in your own business.
