The Compare Dare (Talk on CD)
“I dare you . . .” That’s an interesting phrase! In this fireside talk, popular youth speaker John Hilton III gives us a different kind of dare. A dare not to compare. Whether it’s about our looks, our intelligence, or our talents, all of us struggle with comparing ourselves to others. It can be looking down on others—“I did better than you on that test”—or looking down on ourselves—“I’m not as pretty as she is.” But President Dieter F. Uchtdorf said, “The Lord doesn’t . . . (nor should we) compare our efforts to those of others.” In this important and engaging talk, John explains both why and how to stop comparing yourself with others.

This talk is such a great reminder to not judge others as well as ourselves. We don't need to compare ourselves or others to make ourselves feel better. We are all children of our Heavenly Father no matter what we do or what we look like. This is a great talk for everyone of all ages.
