Stop comparing yourself to others.

There are 7-billion people on this planet… and only ONE you.

YOU have ZERO competition in being yourself.

Gandhi is taken.

Buddha’s been done.

Bruce Lee has already had his fun.

Your true SELF is brighter than the sun.

You being YOU will make you the only One.

You are one of a kind – a unique, amazing, divine creation born to express your gifts with the world.

Your mere presence on this planet makes a difference, and who you ARE is the gift.

Yet we sometimes forget this. Thinking we should be something other than we are. That we must be…

…more successful

…more knowledgeable

…more skinny

…more nice

…more enlightened

…more like Gandhi or Mother Theresa.

The list can be exhausting and endless.

When in fact the very things that make you YOU, are the very things that make YOU YOU. And what makes You uniquely YOU is the very thing that makes you special.

Comparing yourself to others is futile for there is really no comparison. It only ends up killing your creativity and aliveness leaving you feeling terrible. We often think everyone else is living the dream life, and that we might be failing or falling behind. This is far from reality.

The goal in life is not to be successful by someone else’s standard but by your own authentic heart’s measure.  Everyone has a different destiny and life path. You never really can know what that is for others. To look at someone else from the outside is not a true representation of what they are really going through at their level of fulfillment.

So, today let go of looking over there at someone else and comparing yourself to them.

You are not them.

You are not meant to be them.

You are you.

…and you were meant to be YOU!

The more you honor your uniqueness and the perfection of your life’s journey, the more you see your true self. The more you see your true self, the more beauty you will find within yourself to celebrate.

To succeed at being somebody that you are not (but think you need to be) is still a failure.  But to love who you are and courageously be that fully is a life well lived.

The easiest thing is in fact to be who you are, but we forget.

I invite you to be your very own Valentine and love yourself deeply.

So, give yourself a gift today.

Stop comparing yourself to others.

Set yourself free.

Happy Valentine’s day.

    Hi, Kute. That’s so true. And what it’s also true is that we not only want to be successful by someone else’s standard, but we believe we need to reach that success by the time they reached. So people think they should be graduated at certain age, successfully married at some other age and having kids right after that. That’s crazy, we should respect ourselves and our desires and do what’s best for us.

    This is brilliant! Okay, all your videos are, but this one is extra special! I love the fruit action! Had me in stitches! What a fun and hilarious way to deliver such fundamental truth! Bless you, for you are a blessing – divine and unique, like we all are. 😉 Tirza <3

    THANK YOU KUTE! You made me realise how much I do compare myself with others; especially tall people or successful people on Facebook and how my energy feels doing this! Everytime I find my doing this, I will remind myself that I am love and unique.

    I decided to have a loving day for Valentines and enjoyed it so much that I am going to do it everyday. Taking time to say hello to the Sun, feel love & gratitude, singing, pilates and a few chocolates!!! Thank you.
