All of what Mike George says makes complete sense to me. Everytime I read something of his, I gain a deeper understanding. This particular article is great. This is what we need to teach our young and old. Here is a little taster. The full document is ATTACHED HERE.
Comparing ourselves with others is a deep and often subtle conditioning in a world where ‘people watching’ has become, for many, a daily obsession. As we watch, we compare, as we compare, we desire, and as we desire we lose our ability to be content with where we are and what we have. Someone else’s life always look better than ‘my life’, someone else’s success always seems much greater than any success I may achieve and someone else’s future always seems to look much rosier than my future. These thought patterns are fatal to our well-being and over time can paralyse our ability to think clearly for ourselves.
