What you have to do is consciously put effort to overrule this comparison”, comments Mr Gaur. Researchers have concluded that people who are constantly comparing themselves are prone to become envious and jealous. Their efforts and energy are more focused on what others are doing. He advises everyone to understand that you have to become the main character of your own life and compare yourself to the past you.
2. Surround yourself with positive people
You know how they say A rotten apple spoils the whole basket! “We are greatly influenced by the kind of people we are surrounded with. Your attitude, actions, habits and perspective shifts greatly when you are with the right or wrong bunch of people”, says Life Coach Somanshu. He further adds that If you find yourself surrounded by people who are constantly whining, complaining about their life but taking no action to change it, people who you get a negative vibration for and you feel drained after meeting them, it’s time you identify them and bid your Farewell already.

Practice affirmations, either stand in front of the mirror or write on a notebook or record your voice and listen repeatedly” reiterates Somanshu Gaur. It can be something as small as “You got this”.
