How to Compete Against Yourself and Win.
You have no competition! Beating your own score is the only thing you have to worry about in the upcoming year. If 2020 taught us any lessons, it taught us to learn how to crush our goals regardless of what life throws our way. In 2021, it’s going to be important to create your own
measuring tool for growth to avoid the comparison trap. The comparison trap keeps us from winning, and all we do is win, win, win. Whether you are working out at home or working to build your home business, it’s imperative to understand how to compete against yourself and WIN!
Beat your own time.
Focus on doing more than you did the last time. You may not be able to hit the gym or the leader board, but you can definitely use your last time as a baseline for your new goal.
Button up your jeans.
Using your favorite pair of jeans as a non-scale marker for reaching your goals is one of the best options without obsessing over the numbers. You can also use a shirt or skirt to measure your success.
Choose an online crew.
Find a fun support group to cheer you on versus competing with you. When you have an encouraging group of friends, you can keep pushing yourself to WIN.
Create a personal leader chart.
Draw a chart for your own goals. When you reach them, mark them off. When you earn five marks in a row, reward yourself.
