Going Beyond Comparison | How to stop comparing yourself to others

Comparing with others is the easiest way to become unhappy

So, how to stop comparing yourself to others?

Hence, let’s overcome comparison, by remembering thoughts like:

  • Life is always a bundle of something good & some not-so-good.. And comparison makes us forget the good part!
  • Indeed if we focus on our specialities, they grow & we end up reaching much higher than we had ever thought!
  • In fact, others may be comparing themselves to us, for things which we have more!
  • What we’ve (& they’ve) got is an accurate return of past karma.. Hence even if we want something extra, let’s make our present karma even more beautiful!
  • Comparison directly leads to jealousy & competition, big energy-drainers!

Conclusion (How to stop comparing yourself to others)

Hence let’s adopt the virtues of self-respect, gratitude & contentment to become free from comparison… And to keep experiencing an elevated state of mind & continued progress at every step always!


Let’s also learn how to overcome Desires, Anger, Guilt, Hurry, Expectations, Hurt, Jealousy, Comparison & Competition

6 Thoughts on Going Beyond Hurt | How to overcome Hurt feelings

The process!

  • Someone says something to us
  • in response, we create thoughts like:
    • “How could they say this to me?”
    • “Am I like this?”
    • “They always say like this to me”
    • etc
  • These thoughts create the feeling of hurt… And this hurt takes away our happiness!

How to overcome Hurt feelings

Hence, let’s overcome hurt! … By remembering:

  • The main realization “Others can say what they want, but hurt is my creation”… Indeed no one can get inside me, I’m the Creator of my thoughts & feelings
  • They said to me once, but how many times did I tell the same to myself within?
  • If someone’s wrong words can hurt us, why can’t we remember someone’s good words at that time to uplift ourselves?
  • We all know some people around, who keep getting hurt for no apparent reason… This again proves hurt is our own internal creation
  • By remaining hurt, we’re actually reducing our efficiency at work, harmony in other relations, etc
  • Compassion (i.e., the understanding that the other person is in more pain) instantly finishes hurt!… Going beyond expectations also finishes hurt

Conclusion (How to overcome Hurt feelings)

Hence let’s overcome hurt… To remain happy always & keep sharing happiness with all!

5 Thoughts on how to overcome Expectations | Going Beyond Expectations

What are Expectations?

Expectations just means “I’ll be happy, if you do this”… Hence otherwise, I’m unhappy & you’re the cause of my pain!

Hence while it might seem normal to expect, it actually introduces a dependency within, hence doesn’t allow us to remain happy always!

How to overcome Expectations

We can overcome expectations, by remembering thoughts like:

  • When we can’t meet up to others’ expectations always, how can they?
  • We expect based on our background & sanskars, which may not necessarily always be easy & comfortable for them!
  • Indeed sometimes we can expect things from others, which might be completely beyond their imagination!
  • Relations doesn’t mean give & take, it means to only give & give (love, respect, trust, etc)… And the more we give, the more their experience keeps increasing within us, & we remain very full!
  • Expectations directly lead to hurt… Hence, becoming free from expectations automatically keeps us free from hurt!… And there’s no limit to expectations!

Conclusion (How to overcome Expectations)

Hence, let’s shift from expectations to acceptance, to experience a life of peace & happiness always!

Going Beyond Competition | 6 Thoughts on how to overcome Competition

The feeling of competition creates a lot of stress (infact, it’s the easiest way to experience stress!)… Hence, let’s overcome competition, by remembering thoughts like:

  • There’ll always be someone or the other ahead of us, in some aspect or the other
  • Even after becoming No. 1, many remain under stress for maintaining that position!
  • In competition, we tend to ignore many other equally important aspects of life (peace of mind, health, work, relations, ethics, etc), only to regret later!
  • The word competition is actually meant for games & sports, not for life!
  • Competition is only possible when all input parameters are the same… Hence, since we come with very different past birth karmic accounts, competition is actually never possible
  • Even in an actual race, we’re taught to focus on our own game, not to look at others!

Conclusion (How to overcome Competition)

Hence, let’s compete with ourselves, thus keep increasing our capacity & efficiency!
