Kathi Lipp is joined by author Shannon Popkin this month for a series about comparison. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of looking sideways and comparing our progress and success to the person next to us, but as Shannon describes it, comparison is a dangerous distraction from what God has called you to do. She and Kathi talk about the tendency to compare ourselves with people we follow on social media specifically. There will always be someone on your news feed that seems to have more exposure or success than you have, so it’s important that you have tools to help you avoid the temptation of comparing your life to theirs. Listen in as Kathi and Shannon explain their strategies including:
- Revisiting your goal
- Being vulnerable
- Serving somebody
If you struggle to get past the hurdle of comparing yourself to others, you will not want to miss this rich series.
