Your Path Is Unique To You - Avoiding The Comparison Trap
Comparing my path to the path of others used to be a confidence killer for me. Seeing others being successful in ways I wanted to be, felt like an impossible goal. One of the most valuable lessons I have learned in life is that we are all on a unique path of our own. There isn't a right way or a wrong way, only what's right for you. What is right for you, may not be right for someone else and vice a versa.
We can learn a lot from the paths others have taken and perhaps find ways to incorporate those elements into our own journey. It's like taking a recipe for something and tweaking it in a way that suits your own tastes. Once I embraced this mindset of my path being unique to me, I was able to embrace more of who I am and how I show up in all parts of my life. I love learning from others on how they create their own success or overcome obstacles. I consume various podcasts, books and YouTube channels that help me feel supported on my unique path. I also work with a coach, who helps me feel supported as I challenge myself further out of my comfort zone. There are various ingredients I take from all of these modalities that have helped and continue to help me move along my path, while still embracing the uniqueness of my own journey. I look at these things as stepping stones that help me a long the way. As we change, evolve and grow the path we are on can pivot into new terrain that can create uncertainty and self-doubt. Sometimes we can feel stuck on a path that feels like it is no longer working for us. One of the things that I love about being a coach, is providing my clients the tools, teachings and insights that can help them feel supported and empowered to confidently move through life and embrace their own unique journey.

Remember, your journey is unique to you. You have the power to create the changes that you want to have in life. The first step is embracing who you are and getting clear on what you want. Then you can confidently take action to where you want to go.
