“Not living up to your potential?” Please read.

I found this article today while browsing Kirtsy.  I felt compelled to share this with you all as it is one of those articles to bookmark and read on days when you feel inadequate, unsuccessful and loser-ish.

I have always believed that it is the kiss of death the second you start comparing yourself to others.  It is so easy to fall into that self-deprecating pattern of inadequacy.  Let’s face it, there are some amazing, tremendous, talented, savvy people in this world.  But, guess what?  YOU are one of them!

    Hi Sheila – it’s Friday afternoon and thought I’d check in to see what’s going on in your blog these days ~ this is a great post. I just blew an hour reading Penelope Trunk posts about work/life balance, thank you very much! 🙂 She is right about not comparing ourselves to others – we never win because there’s always someone richer/smarter/thinner/younger/foxier than we are. And if we compare and think we come out ahead, we’re just making ourselves smaller. I think she is right about being kind – but we also have to be kind to ourselves as part of that. And then it’s not so fun to compare.

    So next time I have to be careful before checking your blog – who knows what kind of wisdom will come my way!

    Have a great weekend!
