Playing the comparison game is an easy thing to do. We see other leaders, bloggers, and thought giants running alongside us and we believe we should be where they are.
Looking at what everyone else is doing, we take our eyes off of what we were meant to do. This wrong focus takes us off course. We lose our passion for our vision. And we begin to feel like we’re not doing as much as we should.
This is the wrong mindset to have. We cannot compare ourselves to others are doing or have done. We can only focus on the mile we’re in.
Reading Run The Mile You’re In by Ryan Hall, the fastest American half marathoner, opened my eyes to some of the recent struggles I’ve been having. I’ve watched friends of mine go on to start exploding businesses, talk around the world, and have a “larger” impact than I have had and it has gotten on my nerves.
The world we live in is shaped dramatically by technology. In the last decade or so, everything from the way we work to the way we socialize has been impacted by the latest gadgets.
These days, we have voice activated assistants in our homes, we all own smartphones, we have incredible GPS tech in our cars and everything from the medical industry to marketing has been impacted by the way things have progressed.

It all started with a dog. A dog that was slain by someone attacking John Wick (Keanu Reeves) and his home. Now, we’re three films into the John Wick franchise and it only keeps getting better.
John Wick 3: Parabellum continues moments after John Wick Chapter Two ends. John has been excommunicated from the assassin community he was a part of. He’s had a huge bounty placed on his head. And he has nowhere to go.
This leads to one of the best action movies to release in the recent past. John Wick takes action and violence to a new level.
You’ll also notice something else in John Wick 3: Parabellum. Loads of leadership lessons. The movie is filled with ways to lead better, if only you pay attention. Let’s dive into those Reel Leadership lessons and see what you can take away from the latest John Wick movie.
There’s a time and a place to hold your tongue. You and I both know this. But we frequently hold our tongue much more than we need to.
We have great ideas. They are life-changing or organizational changing ideas. And we hold onto these ideas without speaking up. We hold our tongues.
It’s time to stop holding your tongue when it comes to the ideas and insights you have. You’ve been given clarity others have not been given. Stop holding your tongue.
When the opportunity presents itself to share your ideas, share them. Don’t be scared of what others will think. They’re not the one offering up an idea. You are. You’re the one they asked.
Be bold. Be strong. Be courageous in sharing your ideas.
Stop Holding Your Tongue
You have a responsibility to those around you. Your responsibility is to help lift them to the next level. You can do this!
