WEBVTT 1 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:11.300 Good Day, my friend 2 00:00:12.620 --> 00:00:18.640 welcome to a moment with mode. Thank you so much for downloading the show 3 00:00:19.660 --> 00:00:25.800 hope you are having a great day. I am so grateful that we're here together, 4 00:00:27.180 --> 00:00:31.560 Wain Dire, joins the show to day and Wayne says 5 00:00:32.640 --> 00:00:34.680 you don't need to be better than any one else. 6 00:00:35.860 --> 00:00:38.840 You just need to be better than you used to be 7 00:00:40.380 --> 00:00:46.420 my friend. We are not competing with any one and we don't have to measure 8 00:00:46.640 --> 00:00:48.020 our progress 9 00:00:49.260 --> 00:00:51.700 up against any one else, 10 00:00:52.880 --> 00:00:56.900 wanting to be better to be better than someone else 11 00:00:57.980 --> 00:01:01.620 and not wanting to be better just for the sake of being better, 12 00:01:02.800 --> 00:01:06.800 usually comes from a place of jealousy or envy, 13 00:01:07.880 --> 00:01:13.460 and we don't need that if we are judging and worrying about what others 14 00:01:13.540 --> 00:01:19.920 are doing, we're taking the focus off us and putting the focus on something 15 00:01:20.100 --> 00:01:25.400 outside of our control. I don't think I need to tell you what our good friend 16 00:01:25.520 --> 00:01:32.480 epictetus says about worrying about something outside of your control. Our 17 00:01:32.640 --> 00:01:37.960 focus needs to be on building the best o us that we can build 18 00:01:39.420 --> 00:01:43.600 becoming better means. We may have to change some habits. We may have to 19 00:01:43.720 --> 00:01:45.420 change our old ways of thinking 20 00:01:46.460 --> 00:01:48.420 and we may have to take some risks 21 00:01:49.480 --> 00:01:54.420 and that's also going to trigger the resistance who hates when we try and 22 00:01:54.520 --> 00:01:57.640 grow and with all of this to deal with, 23 00:01:58.740 --> 00:02:01.940 we can't afford to worry about what other people are doing. 24 00:02:02.960 --> 00:02:08.220 Part of not comparing our journey to others is comparing the time it takes. 25 00:02:09.199 --> 00:02:14.940 Their journey to our better selves is an ongoing trip and it can take our 26 00:02:15.080 --> 00:02:20.960 whole lifetime to get there. It's more important to be on the journey, then 27 00:02:21.140 --> 00:02:26.780 how fast you're going comparing ourselves to others only leads to 28 00:02:26.940 --> 00:02:27.800 disappointment. 29 00:02:28.840 --> 00:02:34.800 Comparison is the joy killer. I took twenty years a guitar license with 30 00:02:34.860 --> 00:02:41.540 Chris, and I am where I am. If I look at some of those young kids and I don't 31 00:02:41.640 --> 00:02:48.480 have to look far to see them- young six, seven, eight nine ten year olds, who 32 00:02:48.720 --> 00:02:56.540 are absolutely dazzling on the guitar, if I compare myself to them, it can 33 00:02:56.580 --> 00:03:03.940 make plain the guitar, not a whole lot of fun. All we have to do. My friend is 34 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:09.920 concern ourselves with our own journey and being better than who we were 35 00:03:10.060 --> 00:03:19.320 yesterday. CARPEBANT UM I'll talk to you to morrow. I
