We are all guilty of comparing ourselves to others, and it’s especially easy to do so based on how we share our lives through social media. A quick scroll on your phone will convince you everyone you know is happy, prosperous, and confident. But is that reality? The truth is, we all have our own internal struggles, and we are all trying to do the best we can in our own circumstances.


 

Rather than comparing yourself to others, focus instead on comparing yourself to…yourself. Concentrate on your personal goals and progress, and how you will summit your financial Mount Everest, instead of how the Joneses are summiting their own.
