I'm constantly on the lookout for 'what works'. I keep researching inspirational and influential people on the web and in my vicinity to learn their secrets to a fulfilled & happy life.
And guess what, I come across many people who truly WOW me. Initially I couldn't helping thinking 'Gosh, they are so much more ... (professional, capable, skilled, balanced - you fill in the blank) than me' but now I've taken the vow to only ever compare myself to myself. Looking at where I was 10, 5 years ago - am I further along the way? Have I added to my skills, my learning, my experience? And if the answer is yes, I give myself a pat on the shoulder.
So next time you meet the perfect yummy mummy or the highly successful entrepreneur tell yourself they all started off with an initial goal or idea themselves. They all started off by taking one step at a time. You can do it too.
To your happiness,
