Many of times we become really self conscious about ourselves and start comparing ourselves to others. This can break us, but on the other hand it can inspire us to become better. Let’s see how comparing can be both detrimental and beneficial to our growth….
The greatest thing we can do when it comes to our business is to focus on become better each and everyday. Have you ever been on a roll, like being in the zone, and everything is going the way you want it to?
That’s the greatest feeling, huh?
It’s like no one can touch you when you’re in the zone.
You put out an ad whether you’re using solo ads, ppc, or maybe you have a popular blog and you’re getting 10 leads one day, 7 the next, maybe 15 another day. You feel so successful.
On top of that, you may get 3 signups a month in your home business or affiliate program.
Sounds fantastic to a lot of us huh?
Then you read about the few people that’s getting 30 leads a day on average and they’re getting 3 sign ups a week. Now how does that make you feel?
Many of times we feel bad about ourselves. In comparison to those people, you’re just making chump change. You wonder what they’re doing, but then you tell yourself that it’s not possible to reach their level.
Then doubt comes in, and you tend to come down more on yourself more and more. Then all of a sudden, you’re sign ups may stop because you don’t have the vigor to keep going.
How Comparing Yourself To Others Can Be Detrimental
Sometimes the worst thing that we can do is compare ourselves to others in a sense that “we’re not good enough” or in a jealous sense. This can truly be detrimental to our home businesses.
Because we’re so focus on the other person and how bad we are when it comes to our home businesses that we block and reject any great ideas and strategies that come our way.
Some of us even go to the extent of trying to bring the other person done just so they can feel how we feel. The problem with this is that you can ruin your own reputation and be labeled a “HATER”.
So why would you want to negate your success by become insecure about yourself because the other person is doing well for their home business?
Does it really help you in the long run?
So instead of focusing on your insecurities and defaming the name of the other person, why don’t you let their success be your inspiration to get better.
We all work hard at building our businesses, but in the industry, especially in the network marketing industry, we are all here to help and inspire each other. There may be some things that you’re doing that you’re more successful at that others may want to learn about.
If the other person is doing well, why not ask the questions “What are they doing to build their business and how can I apply it to mine?” You want to always leave your mind open and accept the ideas and strategies that resonate with you, and letting others inspire you will do this for you.
So the next time your insecurities and “haterism” start to creep up on you, stop, think, and see how that other person can help and inspire you. It’s better to see how you can improve instead of becoming an obstacle to yourself.
