In this episode, we're diving into the key concepts discussed in the book "The Gap and the Gain" by Dr. Benjamin Hardy and Dan Sullivan. We explore the importance of shifting our definition of success and avoiding the trap of comparing ourselves to others. The discussion highlights how high achievers, especially women, tend to judge their success based on external factors like appearance, career success, and family life. The "gap" is defined as comparing oneself to an ideal, while the "gain" involves grounding oneself in appreciation and gratitude. Tune in to discover how to apply these insights in your own life.
