The Comparison Trap

5 Gym Bag Essentials

I decided I was going to get out and share this with all of you! Why? Because I think that no matter what you do in your life, you’re always going to fall into this COMPARISON TRAP.

I want to talk to you a little bit about the comparison game and the importance of running your own race and doing things for yourself with your blinders on as well really trusting your gut and I feel like so often guys in business. 

I just had a bunch of mentoring calls with my coaches and a lot of them are new and they are starting out. One thing I really noticed was that so many of them were worried about the other coaches and what they were doing and the achievements that they had had within the first month of their business and they were really starting to compare themselves or comparing where they are at and where I am at in my business. The thing is, is that I have been in my business now for 2 and a half years. So, obviously my business is going to be a little bit different than somebody that just starting.

Control the controllable with your blinders on

The important thing that when you're starting a new business or a new anything that you want to venture out into is that you focus on what you have to do and the things that you can control and those activities that you can do and understand that anything is going to take time and activity. So if you for example just started your business and you have not been able to put this much time and creativity and energy into it and sharing what it is that you're doing, obviously the person that has more time on their hands is going to accomplish things a lot quicker in their business. 

But being fast is not necessarily the goal. The thing is you want to be consistent and you want to be steadfast. It doesn't mean anything if you shoot out of the gate and you're like a rabbit and a hare trying to reach that deadline but then you stopped short and you fall asleep, are not consistent. That person that is consistent day in and day out given the small amount that they can over time that person is the one that is going to be successful in reaching their goals. 

The Comparison Trap

So, just remember that everybody is running their own race. Be proud of where you're at in your journey and celebrate those things along the way. The other thing is just realize that you are very special and you are very unique. And you're going to bring things to your business that other people are not. That's okay. It is okay to go on your way. It is okay to try things out. You don't have to do what everybody else is doing because you have special unique talents that you can share that nobody else has. 

You may watch other people that are in your profession. Or that guru or whatever it is that they do. I am sure that they are incredible and they are brilliant and they have a lot to offer. But at the same time, they don't have what you have to offer. 
It's really important to think about what you have that nobody else has. What are those special unique talents that you can bring to your community and really help serve them in whatever areas.

Think about being unique and to really think about using those skills that you have and putting them into your own brand and then closing the blinders off and just really going your own way. 

Run your own race guys. Don't worry about what other people are doing. Bring yours special unique talents and gifts to your market place and that is where you're going to thrive. That's where you're going to see the most success and you're going to have so much passion because it's just what you enjoy doing.

The Comparison Trap

I hope that help you guys. Just remember be consistent. NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS. Never give up on your goals. They are important when they planted in your life for a reason. And it's up to you to act on them and to keep them present and to just understand that no matter what consistency is always what wins. Over time. Consistency is how you're going to accomplish anything that you want to accomplish.

Don't worry about what other people are doing. Just continue to put your dreams and your goals at the forefront of your mind. Put consistent actions to them each and everyday. That is how you are going to achieve whatever it is that you want to set out to achieve.

I just hope that encourages you guys that what happened last month happened last month. Now this month is a fresh start. It is not you against anybody else. It is literally you against you and what time and energy and effort you have into whatever goals that it is you wanted to achieve. That's the outcome that you're going to get in that place. Let's just think smarter. 

Let's out our blinders on this month and just realize that you are here. You're there for a reason. Your opportunity whatever it is was placed in your lap and just continue to act on it. I believe when great, great things are going to continue to open up for you guys.
