Stop comparing yourself to other small business owners. The game of comparison is dangerous for your business. We’re all different and we’re all on our own journey.
Most small business owners will look at other successful small business owners and start comparing. As a result, your self-esteem is lowered, doubt creeps in your mind, and you start to second guess the business. It is a dead end road that leads to failure.
We are all designed to be good at different things, with different personalities. Some people are good at time management, some are not. Some are good at keeping organized. Some are not. Some are great leaders, some are better at serving. Some have developed more skill through training and others have not gotten that far yet. You cannot compare those things.
So, if you want to succeed in business, then stop comparing yourself to the others. The only person you need to compare yourself to is the person you were yesterday.
You don’t know how much rejection they got, how much work they did, or what struggles they had to overcome in order to reach that number.
You most likely already have enough pressure in life. Do not put this added pressure on yourself. My advice is to study the successful people, find out what they learned to become successful, find systems and strategies that can speed up the process, never give up, stay consistent and stop comparing yourself to other people.
I want to leave you today with the famous words of Dr. Suess. “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
So be yourself, work your business and stop comparing.
To your success,
