Do you struggle with competition with other women? Do you long to build community with others but find yourself stuck in comparison? I’ll admit: I’ve allowed my competitive nature to steal from my life, hurt relationships and friendships, and limit the work that God wants to do in me. Yet more than ever, we need to build connections with other Christian women and stop the competition battle.Misty Phillip is the perfect person to share about this topic, because, as the head of the Spark Media Podcast Network, she is passionate about helping women let go of competition and embrace the power of connection. Misty describes herself as a “connector,” and I’ve watched her work tirelessly to help other women build connections in Christian podcasting. Misty models how we can stop competition between other Christians by emphasizing that it’s not about comparing our journeys, but rather it is about silencing the voice of comparison and staying focused on God. Don’t miss this honest and encouraging conversation with practical tips on how to let go of competition with other women!WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:[3:56] Misty’s thoughts on what it means to be a connector[6:42] How to stop competition through amplifying others’ voices[8:42] What prevents us from amplifying God’s voice?[10:35] Misty’s battle to stop the competition and comparison in her life[20:08] Why we struggle with competition with other women[22:56] The mindsets Misty encourages in order to minimize comparison and competition building community[27:33] Letting go of competition without shame[31:42] TODAY’S LISTENER SUBMITTED QUESTION: How is brain priming different from reframing or from affirmations?CONNECT WITH MISTY PHILLIP:WebsiteBy His Grace PodcastFREE WORKSHOP: Learn How to Transform Your Thoughts to Transform Your LifeDo you find it hard to let go of worry?

Ever found yourself unintentionally stuck in the comparison trap? As we seek self-improvement and look to make our lives better we can easily fall into the comparison trap. We know that comparison is an incredibly destructive mindset, but how can we manage our thoughts in a way that doesn’t use comparison as a motivation for self-improvement?Where is that line between growing and becoming our best, and being content with where God has us now?  I invited my friend, Heather Creekmore, to discuss her own battles with comparison, especially when it comes to body image.  We have a conversation about how to recognize the comparison trap, why we are comparing ourselves to others, and how we can use God’s love and kindness to fuel us to find freedom from these cycles of comparison.WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:[3:27] Why do we get stuck in the comparison trap?[5:33] Comparison is natural but unhelpful[7:14] Finding freedom from other people’s definitions of “better”[10:31] Recognizing our comparison triggers[16:59] Making our expectations align with God’s truth[23:13] Growing with compassion through the process of dealing with comparison[29:38] Freedom from comparison and competition through humility[31:48] Contentment and security in our identity in Christ[38:07] TODAY’S LISTENER SUBMITTED QUESTION: How should I work on mindset with my children?CONNECT WITH HEATHER:WebsitePodcastFREE WORKSHOP: Learn How to Transform Your Thoughts to Transform Your LifeDo you find it hard to let go of worry?
