a consideration or estimate of the similarities or dissimilarities between two things or people.
"they drew a comparison between Gandhi's teaching and that of other teachers"
a firmly held belief or opinion.
"she takes pride in stating her political convictions"
Never fall victim to comparing:
Try this instead...Ask yourself questions like:
-what have I achieved in the past 3, 6, 9 months or this year?
-does my life look differently than it did last year?
-have I executed the things I committed to do in my personal, business, professional life?
-can I see a difference in how I respond/react in tough times, in tough situations?
-am I being more kind, forgiving, understanding and giving myself more grace for growth?
-can I see any other changes in my feelings, behaviors, in the way I think/speak?
-what can I do or what changes can I make to intensify my growth even further?
The most prominent measure of your success, the ultimate measure of your trajectory is your own. personal growth. Comparing your success to the success of another is an extreme detriment to the forward movement of achieving your goals. Let God and your conscious be your guide...not someone else's life...comparison crushes conviction and you know who you are. Don't let the image of others change that and don't measure your progress with the progress of others. With honest answers to the questions above you can evaluate where you see growth and where there is room for improvement. Again, you know who you are and what you need to do in order to level up. Stick to your script!

This post serves as a reminder that the Vision that God has given you is TRUE. Those dreams you have at night are your subconscious speaking to you at rest and because of that you can not rest! You do not have the luxury of ignoring the calling on your life that YOU SEE AND KNOW PLAIN AS DAY.. Stop looking and waiting for external confirmation to execute what omnipotent God has specifically given you to do....There is no where in history where God has given vision without provision.
Remember Moses, from the Bible...he parted the Red Sea. Moses was the instrument God used to free the Hebrews from decades of mental, physical and spiritual BONDAGE. God positioned Moses to oppose the most powerful man, Ramses II the Pharaoh at that time.-with only Moses' vision (hearing from God directly) and Gods word. After many plagues, negotiation and plainly telling Pharaoh to let the people go. When Moses and the Hebrews left Pharaoh a cloud followed them by day and a pillar of fire by night...manna came from heaven to feed them day by day. After Moses parted the Red Sea God returned the sea to its original form and the Pharaohs men were swallowed in the deepest shadows of those waters never to be seen or heard of again.
Moses parted the Red Sea with God, faith and a rod by his side. Moses believed in the vision that God gave to him (after much doubt and through a journey of self discovery). He eventually committed to executing the vision God gave, spoke to him and the entire Hebrew Nation and generations to come benefited from his ultimate obedience. Once Moses locked in on the vision, God provided. In turn Moses was the major key in the mental, physical and spiritual freedom of an entire nation of people.
God made provision for his people and God will make provision for you. If, where there is vision, there is also provision.
There is no hope in placing all your trust in the confirmation of man. Man can not see what God gave you, or even comprehend...until you execute! Your higher power, God, Allah, has given you a work to do and you know it. You feel it. You think about it everyday and you cannot escape the vision God has placed within you. Well, how do you execute the vision? That is between you and God. I can say to help see the clear path...get silent, read more, pray, pay attention to who and what is easily attracted to you and what is most easy for you to do. Mostly, go to your God and ask questions, seek clarity. There are billions of people on Earth and no one can do what you can, exactly like you do. That's why God gave the VISION specifically to YOU.
Allah, God, your Higher power will provide. Go forth and do what you are called to. How the vision is executed and elevated is not up to me or you. Our job is accept, apply faith, apply pressure, commit, be disciplined and just do it.

I pray all is well with you and yours...and if you feel it's not, I pray your perspective changes and you find every solution to create a better space. This is just a quick reminder that on your journey through Self Love (unconditionally loving yourself without boundaries) at times you'll have to oppose the norm and choose YOU! Folks will want you to see it their way and shun you for not choosing them, but you must choose YOU! Whomever your higher power is, if you've tapped into hearing and following your intuition...grasp a firm hold of the messages you hear/receive and don't let go! What's right for you may very well be, look wrong to others and that''s iight. If you want to see continued growth and reach your highest potential…you must continue to trust in YOURSELF. External validation is cool, cute but genuine confidence comes from God and from within! Choose you and do what's best for you!
