Powerhouse Women

May 24, 2022

Comparison can be the number one thing that sabotages your confidence, but there are ways to actually make it the most impactful catalyst for your growth. By switching your focus to the people you want to serve instead of those that are further along in their journey, it helps reframe the comparative thoughts in a meaningful way. Noticing and admiring someone else's light is actually a reflection of your own potential. We can use comparison to empower ourselves and the people that we look up to. These new thoughts will eventually become beliefs if we practice transforming them in the moment and truly embodying them. Listen in to learn more about the fourth principle in the Confidence Code series! 


In this episode we talk about:

  • How comparison can chip away at your confidence 
  • Tools to create a different relationship with comparison 
  • Why we need to stop comparing our blooper reel to someone else’s highlight reel 
  • Examples of how to consciously reframe comparative thoughts 
  • Using comparison as a way to empower yourself and the people around you 
  • Why I don’t think comparison is always a bad thing
