Daily Thought 101- Comparing Ourselves



 Often times it's very easy to fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to others, we begin to doubt our talents, our pace of success and moreover lose confidence in our own abilities and what we can achieve. Naturally, the older we get , the responsibilities that we have become more intense and at this point of our lives it's so important to remain confident in ourselves no matter the circumstances we go through.

Starting this blog was a risk, a step out of my most beloved comfort zone, but just like Steve Harvey always states, success does not happen at your comfort zone, taking that leap is the only thing that will help embark you on the road to your success (Basically paraphrasing a whole 6 minute video) . I  mean let's face it, no one said that the road to success was easy. Guys, patience, time and faith are the three things that will help us stay focused and get us through our labour, till we begin to reap what we've sewn. As a church goer, I have a handful of inspiring quotes from my mentor and what he teaches without fail is that 'When you add value to the world, the world will begin to seek and want you'. It takes time and hard work to build imminent value to whatever we do, it consists of focusing and bettering ourselves daily, feeding ourselves with constant encouragement and for me personally, Gods teachings. It's all about mastering that mindset that 'One day you will be sought after'. 

In this post, I want to encourage all of you guys to be selfish, yes you read right. Like I said, building value in whatever you do requires you to focus and graft in your craft (laughs* this was not intended) it means forming the foundations to your empire and that requires your sole attention. Don't ever allow yourself to be 'The Bystander' and waste your time whilst you watch others build up their dreams and progress on into their calling. As a believer, I do everything with Christ because he knows me better than I know myself, my dreams and desires. Moreover, he is the very manual to the empire I am currently building. Therefore, everything I do, goes unto him and guys, it certainly makes the whole journey a lot less stressful *laughs.

Oh yes, you're probably thinking what's behind my images of today's post. Well...these were the very first images I had taken for my blog, I guess as an introduction to my first outfit posts. However, I allowed my mind to believe they were not good enough and I was starting to compare my content to other great bloggers out there. Yes I know, (*Bows head about to fake cry) Lesson 1 when taking a leap into success is to, 'Never Compare Yourself!'. My younger Sisters, aka my amazing, God sent supporters and photographers were gutted that I didn't publish these, But God built confidence within me and heck, I realised that I actually looked banging hot that day and that my sisters have great talent for beginners.  I learnt an important lesson that, if you do not see yourself as a worthy contender, no one else will. (As cheesy as it sounds *laughs)

Remember, add value to your craft, continue to better yourself every single day and we shall all become the people we envision ourselves to be.

Until the next entry x

  1. What a lovely post. I constantly remind myself that comparison is the thief of joy. While there will always be people who are more successful to me, I know it's not worth constantly comparing to them.

  2. Thank you, really appreciate the love. Honestly, I had time to reflect on my journey and I also noticed I had the 'Comparison disease'. I Had to make this post to remind me and most importantly others to block out that mindset and continue on with their individual progression. Again, thanks for reading.
