About The Episode

Comparisons are often frowned upon, and of course, they don’t make us feel great most of the time. However, there’s a not-talked-about upside to comparing yourself with others. In fact, if done right, it can become a brilliant catalyst to push you in a better direction. Our friendship thrives on healthy rivalries and pushing each other forward. In this episode, we talk about exactly that: when is it okay to compare yourself to others?
