Many people live life to impress others.
They buy fancy cars, big homes, and climb up the corporate ladder.
What they don’t realise is that they’re setting themselves up to fail.
They’ll never win this rat race because they’re living life by someone else’s rules. They judge their success by someone else’s standards.
Do I look successful to others? Do others think I’ve made it?
Those are the wrong questions to ask. And social media has only made this popularity contest more visible.
Do you want to escape the meaningless popularity contest on social media?
Maybe this sounds familiar:
You scroll through your news feed…
There’s your old college classmate with the perfectly toned body…
One of your friends is backpacking through South East Asia…
Someone else shares a story from their gorgeous wedding…
…and there you are, scooping chocolate fudge brownie ice cream on a Saturday night in front of the TV, feeling like shit.
Here’s a gentle reminder:
Stop comparing someone else’s highlights with your sucky moments.– Easy to say, sometimes hard to do
(Spoiler: Those college friends of yours have low points, too. You just don’t see them.)
Why you must compete against yourself
You see, change is difficult. For all of us.
But some people have figured out how to live life on their own terms. To step away from the newsfeed, to ignore the likes, the comments, and the trolls. And instead learned to follow their own inner scorecard.
They know a simple, but powerful truth:
The only competition you need to worry about is yourself.
I wrote The Inner Scorecard to help more people escape this never-ending popularity contest—whether it takes place on social media or in the offline world.
Why? Because it’s doing us no good.
If you get stuck in this loop of social media comparison, you’ll no doubt feel stressed, worried, frustrated, and perhaps even get depressed.
But by stepping outside of that bubble, you’ll start to think for yourself, to reflect on what matters most to you (not what some followers “like”), and you’ll hear this tiny voice inside your head, telling you to step up to the challenge.
But how do you muster the courage to live a life true to yourself when you’re surrounded by everyone else’s “perfect” lives? How can you stop second-guessing yourself all the time and unlock your true potential?
