I’m a yoga teacher, and I tend to use yoga analogies both in and out of the studio space. One of my faves is to “keep your eyes on your own mat,” which could be more roughly translated to “mind your own business.” Important business it is, though, and it needs your full attention. Your path is only yours, and the choices, opportunities and mistakes of other people aren’t your concern. Even more, they’re certainly not a map for your journey.
Whether through FOMO or just pure inspiration, spending too much time worrying about whether you’re on the “right” track in comparison to someone else takes away from the depth of your own experience, on your path. You know, the one no one else gets to walk. The one that’s exactly, ideally perfect for you, and only you. Don’t miss it; the traffic should be pretty light. ;-)
