I had to think long and hard, but here are the ways that I try to avoid comparing myself to others. I think of two things.
- Instead of looking at them with a covetous attitude, I simply compliment them. I truly want to hear their stories. "Hey, I love your house!" "How did you find the time to go back to school?" "I want to be like you when I grow up!" The list goes on. I have always heard, if you want to be a millionaire, hang around millionaires. If I want to attain what I admire, find out how they did it. Life is too short to want to keep up with the Joneses and to be jealous of others.
- My Biblical teachings...this guides me each time.
