Thief of Joy

Thief of Joy

Comparison is the thief of joy.

We’ve heard this time and time again, but it begs the question: Why? What’s so wrong with comparison?


There’s a huge difference between competition and comparison. Competition fuels growth. Two teams go up against each other. They bring their best, leave it all on the field, and when the game is over, they shake hands, and go figure out how to be better.

Comparison is all about who’s better. “Am I better than you, or are you better than me?”
