Comparing myself to others saved my life
Everyone who has told us not to compare ourselves to others is wrong. We have been taught to see comparison as something that causes anxiety, stress, and high self-doubt. But, what if this stigma about comparison is because we have not been taught the positive side of comparison, especially in this digital age? Comparison can save our lives if we let it and help us reach our peak potential.

He has spent the past decade helping people to embrace upward comparison, and teaching them how to utilize the digital space as healthy motivation, rather than one that is conducive to anxiety and stress. He has personally used comparison to transform his life from a shy-introverted kid who had a fear of rejection, low-self esteem, high self-doubt, and severe body image issues into someone who has spoken globally at over 100+ conferences, published over 80+ articles, and has appeared as a guest on various media outlets; who is also 50 pounds lighter and positively impacting others.
