How do you stop comparing yourself to others? Join Jibran el Bazi—teacher, online writer, and content strategist—in this workshop salon on how to stop (negatively) comparing yourself to others by learning what it means to play your own game. Jibran writes Meaning-Making, a Substack publication on the art of living well and he also maintains a creativity self-assessment and website around the topic of unlocking your creative potential.
“Comparison is the thief of joy,” Theodore Roosevelt said. And that’s very true. But it can be challenging not to compare yourself (or your work) to others. That is, if you don’t know what you’re actually comparing to and why you’re doing so.
In this salon, we’ll go through a handful of practical writing exercises that help you to find your authentic voice: your strength, your passions, and what you value. The results of these exercises can help you to discover the “game” that only you can play. A game where, deep down, you don’t feel the need to compare yourself to others as much (anymore).
(The angle of this salon is mostly geared towards creatives and creative entrepreneurs but is definitely applicable to professional and personal life as well.)
