Comparison is the thief of joy…

If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll have noticed I’m a big fan of podcasts…


I’ll listen to them whenever I get the chance (walking to the gym, driving to clients, on the cross trainer getting #toned) so I’m able to get through a lot of audio.


Side note – current favourite is ‘Today in Focus’ by the Guardian, a 20 minute summary of the days biggest news events…worth a listen.


When there’s nothing else to listen to, I’ll pick out a Joe Rogan episode.


I used to listen to his podcast religiously but now I find it’s smattered with pseudoscience and he tends to jump on his high horse too often for my liking.


That being said, there are some good episodes…


I listened to an episode today where he interviewed a psychologist and Joe dropped a nice little quote…


“Comparison is the thief of joy”


It’s obviously not a Rogan original, but I’d never heard it before and I think it can be applied to more than just joy…


Comparison is potentially going to rob you of the body you want.


Comparing your body to other people is a bad idea for some (most) people.


Striving after #fitspo influencers bodies can set unrealistic expectations.


And trying to emulate other peoples training and diet probably won’t work for you.


The truth is, to achieve the body you want, most people are more successful when they have the blinkers on…complete focus on improving your ownhealth and your own body rather than never ending comparisons to other people.


And of course you NEED a training programme and a diet that’s written specifically for you, rather than someone else, otherwise you’re trying to put a square peg in a round hole.


If you’re someone who’s guilty of trying to put a square peg in a round hole…cycling through endless diets that don’t work…drifting around the gym without a real aim…


You NEED a plan that’s bespoke and written for you, and you only.
