Have you ever felt this way?
Jealous of other people’s success.
Do you suffer from “comparison-itis”?
Comparing yourself to those people who you view as more successful than you.
Afraid you won’t ever have their level of success.
A couple of days ago I got a Facebook message from a friend.
“I need your help! I’m struggling.
In the corporate world I come from it’s all about competition and winning.
The person with the biggest win rate is the most successful. And we’ve been pitted against each other for as long as I can remember.
But now that I have my own business, I’m afraid my subconscious is sabotaging me.
I’m following leaders like you, and comparing myself to others.
I think I am jealous I’m not seeing the success yet and afraid I won’t ever see it.
HELP! How do I make this stop?
How to I make that nagging voice in the back of my head go away?”
She followed this by saying…
“Thank you. I know you’ll have the perfect advice.”
No pressure there!
Just looking for perfect advice. LOL!
But she certainly got me thinking.
What do I do?
How do I deal with situations like this?
So here are my…
Easy to say, but…
This takes practice. Daily practice.
It’s like putting your brain on a diet from jealousy, self-criticism, and fear.
And instead, feeding it with thoughts of gratitude, happiness, and appreciation.
It literally is reconditioning your brain to a new way of thinking.
Start making a conscious decision to genuinely celebrate the success of others.
If someone has come from where you are, and now has the success you want…
Because this is proof that the success you want is possible.
And it’s possible for you.
Is the person you’re comparing yourself too really that much smarter than you are?
Most successful entrepreneurs have become successful because they were willing to think outside the box.
They were willing to try new approaches to their businesses.
They don’t just do something because “it’s the way it’s always been done.”
Or because it’s the way “my upline”, or “my company” does it.
There’s nothing wrong with learning from someone who has already had experience that you haven’t.
New technology is constantly being created.
And each of us is unique.
Different people have different strengths and weaknesses.
Be willing to experiment.
Use your strengths, and find your unique style.
Any successful entrepreneur I’ve ever met, did “the work”.
They were willing to do things others weren’t willing to do.
They made some sacrifices of time, money, and pride…
In the short-term.
For long-term gain.
Wayne Dyer talked about his success with his first book. He traveled all over the US speaking to audiences everywhere. He said there was nothing on his “unwilling to do list”.
What’s on your “unwilling to do list”?
I’ve certainly found the quote “The harder I work, the luckier I get.” to be true.
So if you’re comparing yourself to others, ask yourself if you’re really putting in the same amount of effort and work they are?
Growing any business takes patience and ‘stick-to-it-iveness’.
So many people fail because they just don’t stick with it long enough.
Things that look like an overnight success, rarely, if ever, are.
In his book, Think And Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill tells the story of a man in the gold rush days, who, after weeks and weeks of digging and drilling gave up.
He sold his equipment to a “junk man”.
The junk man hired an engineer, who found that the original man gave up digging just three feet from the gold.
“The junk man took millions of dollars in ore from the mine…”
The original man lost a fortune because he stopped digging…
Just three feet from the gold.
Hill goes on to say…
“Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to QUIT. That is exactly what the majority of men do.
More than five hundred of the most successful men this country has ever known, todl the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them.”
