3 Steps to getting over Comparison

making progress, start somewhere, motivation, procrastination, 3 steps

I often find myself comparing myself against others. Constantly wondering how in the world do I get to where they are. Whether its a another blogger or an artist, I am compare my beginning to their middle. Its as though I have blinders on and only see the end result of other peoples hard work and efforts, rather than the full picture. 

So when I go to attempt something like blogging or calligraphy I compare myself in the beginning and get really discouraged because I am not as good as the people I look up to. Then I take  the easy route and give up on what I was working on when the task (ie this blog)

This past month I discovered that its really not about comparison but starting. Starting and remember every small step you take will bring you that much closer to the success you want. 

Here's 3 steps I use to getting over my comparison need.

1. Start, post your first post, film your first video, start on that project
2. If you're tempted to compare yourself, start at their beginning, whether it be their first blog post, video or artistic piece. 
3. Just keep on going and remember that you making progress everyday you put in time.

With that I want to make an announcement, I recently launch a new site:
granted I still have a lot of work to do, ie put up my items. But I thought it was approiate to show the progress I have made on it so far. I never thought I would be this close to launching something. Ill make an official announcement soon but for now you can find my blog post there under "rambles"

Thats all for today, 

Cheers, Jennife
