Stop comparing to others!
An entrepreneur, a startup, one day has learned that uncertainty plays often a role in business. This is certainly not a problem, when this uncertainty, that can come up in our plannings, in our management, is only of small size and does not happen too often. We should simply learn to accept it as normal and should not put too much weight onto it. Otherwise, it can lead to doubt, to a lack of trust in the own self, and to a false management.
From time to time we are perhaps a bit insecure as entrepreneur, whether we are on the right path of success. We are easily seduced to look around what other entrepreneurs are doing. We might be inspired by great leaders, great entrepreneurs and see them as role models.
There is certainly no problem, as long as we don’t compare ourselves to others, aim on copying their success, and “look too much into their career”.
Looking what others are doing can be a good motivator, but can also “hit” our ego.
We simply feel
Not good enough ….
Not successful enough …
Not wealthy enough …
We suffer under the “Social Comparison Theory”.
And the problem is, we are never …. enough !
We can do, what we want!
Focus on your own life and progress
So whenever you notice yourself comparing, take a moment to remind yourself that you are good enough just as you are.
Research shows that the happiest people are those who live their own life and don’t compare at all. Those people who focus their efforts to improving themselves.
Envy is destructive
Are you sometimes jealous? Jealous of others’ success?
And through that you develop negative feelings for others?
Be careful, this is a trap!
Being angry through our envy, we are then angry with the other person, who has success.
Envy can destroy relationships and trust.
And we suffer from our anger.
WHAT YOU SHOULD LEARN
Stop comparing to others!
Focus on your own life and progress!
