Have you ever had an arch-rival?
Her name was Sherri.
We were in the 6th grade and we battled for everything.
I usually won. But one day it was bothering me how when I would go out for a new sport, Sherri would then decide to go out for the same sport.
I was complaining to my mom about it.
Then she said the following game-changing wise words:
“Stop worrying about what Sherri is doing. Focus on what you do and being your best.”
I still appreciate the wisdom in those words. Probably more now than I did then.
How do you maintain your focus on being your best?
In this short episode, I dive into this and how comparison robs us of our motivation, our focus and our peak performance.
