How do you view your coworkers, peers, friends? Do they inspire you to be great or are they the competition that you must beat? Do you know all of their weaknesses and point out their mistakes? Jon Acuff recently wrote an article called Inspiration vs. Comparison, here are a few we wanted to point out:
Wouldn't you rather be inspired than to judge, be empty, feel that it's impossible? It's time to celebrate people... cheer for them, believe in them, WANT them to succeed. From there you will cultivate feelings that will lift you higher than ever!
It's too easy to criticize people, but that's what we are here for. To help you take the hard road less traveled and to become a Better Human, it's much more joyful. Don't worry, you're already on the right path - keep going! Let's leave you with one more Jon Acuff quote:
"Inspiration is a gift. Comparison is a curse. And each day we get to choose which we’ll embrace."
P.S. Thanks for being our inspiration... we're right here cheering for you!

YOU GO FIRST.
Pick your own damn self. Want to be a leader? Start acting like one right now. Whatever position you're in, whatever company, whatever location - it does not matter. Be the best at you and your job. Show us that you can, on a consistent, every day kinda thing, show up and do good work. Your mere presence inspires greatness.
Sometimes we take for granted those around us. We forget what it feels like to have someone there every day, to be surrounded by others on your team, company, organization, neighborhood or even your family.
One simple phrase, “so glad you are here”...is life changing.
