Where do we compare ourselves to others?

  1. Family/Friends
  2. Social Media
  3. Co-workers
  4. Everywhere else, too!

Why do we compare ourselves to others?

  1. We only see their finished projects
  2. Being “Busy” is a new marker of success
  3. Easier to take criticism than compliments

What to do about it:

  1. Stop taking yourself for granted and lead with strengths
  2. Remind yourself: You only know what others share with you
  3. Seek Alignment – find your “Trunk”

How to find your “Trunk”

  1. What brings you joy?
  2. Who/How do you want to help?
  3. Start before you are ready
