We all know it's a competitive world and it's hard not to compare ourselves to others, especially when we don't feel especially successful. But thinking about where other people shine doesn't help us shine brighter!
I came up with a very simple exercise to remind myself of the value I bring to the world. All you need is 10 or 15 minutes, and some paper for journaling if it helps you to write things out.
Ask yourself: If I didn't show up to work today, what would happen without me? If I checked out of my relationship or my family, what would go wrong?
