Comparing ourselves to others, even those we may admire tremendously, is the surest way to stifle or even lose our own power.

While others may be quite inspiring, their path is not ours; ours is not theirs.  As such, comparisons can only hinder our progress with ourselves and our relationships with others.

The idea is to graciously accept each day as a gift of time that allows us to further uncover and discover our own power.  

Our powers are hidden in what gives us joy; what inspires our patience; what makes us listen most closely; what makes time eternal; what we feel and see that might be missed by others; what we intuitively know yet might mistakenly disregard because we don’t realize how unique to us it might be.

Within our self-discoveries lies our contentment. 

When we’re content, miraculously we seem to achieve more and life falls into place.  

Being content does not equate to laziness. That’s a fear for many.  While content is defined as being satisfied with what we have, it’s human nature to want to explore that which gives us joy. I don’t believe wanting to delve into whatever is inspiring our joyous nature counters the concept of contentment. Rather it magnifies it, miraculously making our joy and life satisfaction bigger and better. 

Figure out how to leave your mark and do it in your own way that adds to your joy.
