"I'm either better or worse than you."
"Tony Robbins is better than me."
"A homeless guy is worse than me."
"My neighbor has a badass truck that is better than my car."
"This guy I know has way more money than me and so he must be more intelligent."
"I need to be more outgoing, I need to buy a new truck, and I need to build wealth in order to move up the chain."
This is the narrative. I wasn't born with it. The world taught me this way of thinking. As an adult, it's my responsibility to look into this and grow my understanding. If I can't have compassion for my own "better/ worse than" thinking, I will continue to project this narrative onto others.
I will put you on a pedestal or I will put you below me and I will stay absorbed in "self" aggrandizing . My patterns will reinforce this because I will put myself in situations where this appears to be true.
Work Hard = Good person and rewards
Don't Work = Lazy person and bad things
It's not true.
It's a story built from a mindset of fear and scarcity. Look in the mirror. All the projections are from you and about you. The comparison is an illusion.
