You’ve gone for an ocean swim with a few of your biggest inspirations.
Tony Robbins is there. And Marie Forleo. Yup, Beyonce is there too.
You’re simply treading water – oh and that’s right, you’re all completely nude.
Gosh, they’re so much better than you, aren’t they? You haven’t got nearly as much money as Tony, or as many Instagram followers and Marie, or designer clothes like Beyonce. And you’ll never be as successful as them.
And then a salty wave of realisation hits you.
Tony can’t take his bank account into the ocean.
Marie can’t take her Instagram following into the ocean.
Beyonce can’t even take her Gucci bikini into the ocean (you’re all butt-naked, remember?).
You can’t take success skinny-dipping.
Because when we strip down to our birthday suits, and take away the money, fame and success, it turns out we are all the same.
We tread the same water.
We breathe the same air.
We pee in the same spot.
No amount of money, fame or success can change that. Not at sea, not on land.
Stop comparing yourself to other people.
Dry off, get some knickers on, and go kick some ass.
