The number of times I go into “life auditing mode” is unbelievable.

Pretty much every time I scroll on social media.

Or LinkedIn. Or any other dopamine-inducing machine.

The more I scroll, the smaller I feel.

Those who question where they are in life, how well they are doing, and what more they could do, or worry about reaching their potential, get it.

It is a constant question that needs constant reassurance.

It’s exhausting and worse, it derails you from your current goals.

The shiny object syndrome kicks in and instead of focusing on that one business or that one writing goal you set for yourself, you get distracted.

This year, I am done evaluating “where I am in life” all the time. 24/7.

Instead, I am internalizing these 4 reminders that ensure me that no matter how late I started on a goal, it’s ok. I am exactly where I need to be.

1) Stop looking around

Stop looking where other people are, and where they think you should be.

Instead, think about it this way. How would you feel about what you’ve done in your life if you didn’t know what anyone else was doing??

Puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?

I heard this conversation on the Financial Feminist podcast hosted by Tori Dunlap and Laura Belgray and it hit me like a punch in the gut.

It’s easy to feel left behind whenever you compare where you are in your career, fitness, finances, hobbies, travel goals, or anything at all.

“But are you genuinely feeling left behind or are you feeling left behind looking at where other people are or are claiming to be?

Behind is totally relative, and I think it’s possible that you are right where you are supposed to be.”
