Financial Comparison

People often compare their financial situation with that of others around them.

They won’t say it out loud, but here are some of the things they are comparing:

  • Do they make more money than I do?
  • Do they have better cars than I do?
  • Is their house better than mine?
  • Do their kids have better toys than mine?
  • Do they have a better job than me?

All this can do is lead to an endless spiral of depression because there will always be someone who has something “more” or “better”. ALWAYS.

A better, more life-giving approach would be to ask the following two questions:

  • Is there some way I can serve this friend?
  • How can I help them accomplish one of their dreams?

When you choose to serve others, it cuts the comparison game out at the knees.
