Is the grass really greener?

Message Title
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.  Eleanor Roosevelt

Have you ever compared yourself to someone else and wished you could be just like her?  When I ask this question in a live workshop everyone raises their hand! Of course we have.  Do you usually find yourself lacking in some way when you do compare?  Of course we do.  But did you know that there's a good chance that the person you are comparing yourself to is looking at you and wishing she was more like you? It's true!

It's time to stop.

The first step is to come to an acceptance of how you were made. Short, tall, wide, broad shoulders - that's just the way it is.  Stop wanting to be or look like someone else. The grass is NOT greener on the other side. Everyone has something they'd like to change.

Are you ready to look your best right now but aren't sure what styles are best for you?  That's why there are image consultants. They are experts at helping you look your best now - not 10 pounds from now.  Contact my friend and awesome image coach, Jill Swanson, author of 'Simply Beautiful' for help.

If you insist on comparing then compare yourself with yourself. Where were you at last year in your career? Where are you now? How were your relationships last year? How are they now? Need to make some changes? Go for it!

September Confidence Action Step:

When you start to compare yourself with someone else try and catch yourself right away and tell your brain "STOP!"  Then remind yourself of 3 things that you are grateful for and I promise you that the urge to compare will vanish!

September Organization Tip:
This is the PERFECT time to organize your closet! And this is the perfect time to be ruthless while you organize your closet.  If items don't fit why, oh why are they in your closet?  You may answer "Someday they will fit."  Perhaps and perhaps not, but in the meantime the items make you feel bad because they don't fit and you are reminded of this every time you see the garment.  Get it out!

Personal Note

Speaking for the SimplySaid Convention
I had the honor of speaking for two sessions at the SimplySaid Convention in Sioux Falls, SD in August.  I had a fantastic time and met the most wonderful women!  My presentations were my keynote Now is Your Time and I gave a session on Growing Your Business with Confidence

If you want your home to be a place of encouragement, comfort, and inspiration be sure and check out SimplySaid's website.

I also gave a 3-hour workshop to the American Payroll Association on Organize with Confidence.  I can't think of anything better than to have a month filled with sharing how we can step up to the plate and make something great happen in our life and work!

Speaking of having something great happen - we just found out that we are going to be grandparents in March.  We are excited beyond belief! Our son, Chris, and his wife, Ashley, just gave us the news.  This will be our first grandchild and I can't imagine how our life is going to be after baby boo arrives. If you have any hints for me, please let me know!
