Should You Compare Yourself To Others

Should You Compare Yourself To Others

On the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast, I teach you how to increase your profits and enjoy your business more. In this episode, you’ll learn about comparison in business.

I used to work with someone in my business who would get super whacked out about other people in our same industry who were doing things really well. He would think it wasn’t fair and say, I don’t think they’re as smart as we are, how come they’re more successful at those kinds of things?

I let it roll off my back. I understood that you don’t always win just because you’re the smartest person. We don’t get to take our rules and values to decide who is going to be ahead.

But I’ve seen this attitude over and over again in the industry, and that’s what this week’s episode is dedicated to. Tune in to learn the answer to the age-old question: should you compare yourself to others in business? Is that a good or bad thing?
