The Beyond Compare Starter KitImagine a world where we step out of comparing – and into celebrating each other’s successes…

Allow yourself a moment to imagine that. What might be possible. What if you were free from your compulsion to compare?  What if you were free to be the full expression of who you are, without worrying about the impact on others?  What if you were free to witness and revel in the divine in you, rather than the divine you worship in others?  Can you picture that freedom? Us too. But the reality is far different. And frankly, we are FED UP with the reality.

  • We’re fed up with witnessing the very personal attacks being levelled at women* who strive for success–our peers, colleagues, friends, clients… ourselves.
  • We’re fed up with the incredible backlash we see whenever one of us dares to rise up and sing her own tune–unique and human.
  • We’re fed up with watching others dim their light for fear of retaliation.
  • We’re fed up with watching brilliant people defer their authority to others who appear shinier, brighter, wiser.

Fed up with the reality and ready to change it. So we’ve designed an antidote to the underlying disease: Unconscious comparison, and the disconnection that feeds it. It’s a deep, transformative, and powerful digital program called Beyond Compare.

* Not only women, of course – but especially women.

Comparison IS holding you back. The Starter Kit will loosen its grip.

If you are...

  • Frustrated by your time you spend losing yourself in reading others’ sites in the name of inspiration or research only to wind up in the no-man’s land between envy and disdain…
  • Looking to heroes and role models to show you the path to the happiness you seek…
  • Holding big ambitions, but fearing the consequences of becoming more visible: judgment, criticism, or just the projections from those you want to connect with…
  • Feeling fear or disappointment about losing your connection when someone you adore becomes wildly successful…
  • In a love-hate spiral with social media…
  • Finding yourself playing small, when you deeply desire to play big…

…then the Beyond Compare program is absolutely for you.

There is a connection… and it is holding you back.

This program really illustrated the depth of comparison and all the forms it takes. You’ve done an outstanding job of breaking it down into both the inflation and deflation aspects of ego.

What I know to be possible Beyond Compare is the pure expression of this soul coming through me… as well as a genuine joy in watching others shine and express their gifts in the world. Beyond compare I can live the knowing that each of us has a unique expression in the world and the expression of this uniqueness is necessary for each of us to be awake to our wholeness. It is wholeness that will create a more just, peaceful, and loving world.

When I stop comparing, I can make room to experience my own sovereignty and finally get past the “ceiling” that I’ve unknowingly created for myself.

Sarah Bray

So, how is comparison compulsion holding you back?

Does your inner monologue sound like this?
When we’re stuck in the comparison loop, not only do we find ourselves thinking – and often, expressing – bitter, unkind thoughts towards ourselves and others, but we succumb to a series of mental habits that hold us back in a myriad of ways:

  • Focusing on the gap between your insides and others’ outsides;
  • Losing focus on what you’re here to do;
  • Feeling like an outsider: alone, disconnected, alienated;
  • Succumbing to a scarcity mentality;
  • Projecting your desires onto others, rather than going after them yourself;
  • Passing up opportunities, or holding yourself back, for fear of being the target of other people’s projections and criticism.

These habits have an impact, whether we’re looking up to someone as a model of achievement or perfection, or looking down on them as a failure or cautionary tale. It’s the distance we put between ourselves and others that’s the culprit: The stories we tell ourselves about what their successes (or flaws) mean, and what that means for our own journeys.

Beyond Compare ushers you onto sacred ground, to be sure; maybe even where angels fear to tread. This program will guide you into a transparent and transformed way of being. With Tanya and Lauren by your side you can have complete faith that you will be strengthened, supported, and powerfully changed.

Replacing Judgment with Discernment

This isn’t about erasing difference or ditching your capacity for critical thought. It’s about putting criticism in its place – in fact, it’s about expanding its place by making room for a more subtle understanding of the world and the people in it. We aren’t holding a Kumbaya circle here. There is a healthy expression of the instinct to compare: it’s called boundaries. But what needs to go is our culture’s toxic obsession with fostering competitiveness between people…the zero-sum game we buy into, that says one person’s success means another’s failure. If we want the world to change, and evolve beyond simplistic definitions of success, beauty, and the like, we need to start here: By exploring the qualities you admire and scorn in others, and the disowned aspects of you they represent. By amplifying your compassion towards yourself and others – and in the process, step into your own power more fully. By understanding where your own lofty expectations of yourself may be, paradoxically, holding you back. And by integrating, owning, and taking full responsibility for your deepest aspirations.

Celebration, not insecurity.

This powerful course teaches what we know we’re supposed to do about comparison, but don’t follow through on. Beyond Compare breaks the standard ‘stop comparing’ advice down into accessible and achievable practices to build confidence and skills.

Why Tanya and Lauren?

This program is itself an expression of what is possible when we let go of our compulsion to compare and choose to collaborate instead. Both of our bodies of work have led us to dive deep into the Impostor Complex. And we both came to the bottom of the well at the same time and discovered this truth: when we lose ourselves in the maelstrom of comparison, bad things happen. To ourselves, to the people we are projecting onto, to our greatness and to our success. As leadership coaches, we know what we stand to gain, collectively, when we put down our arms and raise one another up.
