As a business owner, I totally understand how easy it is to become consumed with what your competitors are doing. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and second guess every decision you make.
It becomes paralyizing to some extent. I’ve been there myself and it totally sucks.
The truth is, it’s perfectly natural to compare yourself to other people. It becomes an issue when that comparison stops you from being who you really are. See, comparison can be a sneaky little bitch. You start to give her a voice and control over your actions and she sucks the life right out of you.
There is ONLY ONE YOU! When we are true to that, it doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing.
Instead of being reactive by comparing, be proactive and focus on the qualities that set you apart.
No one else has your unique gifts and talents.
