Avoid this big business mistake
Have you ever found yourself committing this business mistake? Checking out someone’s business and feeling like you don’t measure up because it seems like they have found great success in such a short period of time and it is taking you longer.
Why is this a big business mistake?
Because in reality rarely does someone just come on the scene and turn into an overnight success. What you are most likely seeing is the success they have created after many years of work. When you think you need to accomplish what they have quickly you set unreal expectations on yourself and you are setting yourself up to quit or fail.
Most likely they have put a lot of time in personal development, they have built a large network and they have tried and failed at more than one thing.
I heard a great sermon in church recently and there was one line in that sermon just jumped out at me. It was a guest that day so I am not sure of his name but he said, “Many people are insecure because they compare their behind the scenes to someone else’s highlight reel.”
I love that because it is easy to compare all our blood, sweat and tears and behind the scenes actions to the highlights of what appears to be effortless success in another person’s business. We don’t see their behind the scenes and all things they went through to make a successful thriving business.
So when you see other people doing well applaud them because there is probably more than you know to the story. If you are not doing as well as you want don’t lose heart. Success comes from hard work, consistent action and yes even failure.
