In this episode of the Dreamer to Entrepreneur podcast, we discuss the negative effects of constantly comparing oneself to others. We want to emphasize that everyone’s journey is unique, and trying to fit into someone else’s mold can lead to mental and physical exhaustion, sacrificing quality time with loved ones, and ultimately making one unhappy. Focus on your own values and priorities and do not worry about others’ lifestyles, possessions, or business models.
We stress the importance of remaining creative and passionate in entrepreneurship and following one’s gut. It’s essential to stay in one’s own lane and pay attention to personal growth instead of looking outside. Remember the advantages of being a small business owner, including the flexibility to adjust and pivot when life throws curveballs.
This episode also highlights the problems with comparing oneself to others on social media and we urge you not to base your self-worth and success on others’ highlight reels. Focus on individuality and giving customers what they want is a more effective approach than following the Joneses.
At the end of this episode we announce our new segment called “Business Bloopers,” where we share our personal slip-ups in business to show that no one is perfect. This segment will be included at the end of each solo episode.
Overall we want you to embrace your uniqueness and not worry about others’ success or lifestyle. We are available to offer advice or support to anyone feeling overwhelmed.
* Stay tuned to the end for our new segment for our solo episodes called Business Bloopers*
In this episode we share:
- Reasons “keeping up with the Jones’” is not the best mindset
- How keeping up with others can get you into financial trouble
- Getting clear on your own values
