I went through a month where I was unhappy making $500 a day. I know it sounds crazy and I hate to admit it, but it’s true. I was not happy with making that much money at that time. If someone would have told me five years ago I’d make $500 in a day, I’d give up ice cream to have that.
But it’s true that I wasn’t happy. Why? Because I was comparing what I was achieving with others. I also compared what myself to earlier months when I was making much more than that per day.
It made me unhappy and I wondered what I was doing wrong.
Thankfully after a month I realized that being jealous of other people and comparing how much I was making to others was stupid. It only hurt me and held me back.
If comparing yourself with others is holding you back in life, you need to listen to today’s episode.

All my life, my parents, my teacher, my friends and everyone else do this. I always told them that just do your work man not sneak into others
