Do you ever find yourself comparing your success, career, or bank accounts to other people?
We all do it and it’s time to stop.
The problem with comparisons is unwanted stress that lingers. We see what other people are accomplishing and instantly feel a sense of doubt rather than motivation. Yes, there are people that we look up to as a model of success, but we need to start creating our own goals on our own time frame. We can’t fast forward through college. Enjoy these years and use them as stepping stones to that next stop.
A suggestion that I recently began is making a list of what you want to accomplish in the next month. My personal list for the month of March is to maintain A’s in all my classes, start going to the gym again, keep making connections, start working, and search for more internship opportunities. This is a perfect list because it is very realistic and not overwhelming. Monthly lists are more effective than long-term because they keep you thinking in a present mindset rather than stressing over the future.
If the process is taking longer than you bargained for, there is no need to worry just yet. It will all fall into place when it is meant to.
Don’t rush the process, trust it.
