Truthfully, I just spent the last hour looking at different wellness, yoga + inspirational speakers websites and I almost made myself feel inferior. With the kind of thoughts like, “You can see that it is going to take a website designer, social media guru, planner extraordinaire, blah blah blah.” I found myself having thoughts like, “I don’t want to do any of that crap, I just want to help people get healthy + not live by the rules.” Rebel.
When I start looking at these top dollar healthy brands/people/same thing, I am left feeling like there is not enough time/money for me to reach that level of success. Than the second guessing begins and I start saying, “I should just work for another brand + help their dreams come alive.”
But a little voice inside my heart says, “you will be okay, take your time + do things slowly.” Ya know, you read these articles like, “8 year old starts million dollar jewelry store,” and you start thinking, DEAR GOD! I’LL NEVER MAKE IT! I AM 30 YEARS OLD!
Or the parents who say that their kid in elementary school started a foundation for kids in Africa who need clean water. While I admire kids who are super freak genius, I wasn’t one. I had a large social life and would rather talk on the phone to a girlfriend who was having problems, than finish my homework.
So, to wrap up these shenanigans, the worst thing you can do is compare someone else’s speed of success to your own. If you keep hearing all these crazy stories about how someone became a millionaire with “these 3 steps.” You will be discouraged. Or how a group of women lost 20 pounds in a week by taking some new FDA approved drug, you will feel discouraged.
Take your time. I am slow as a snail when it comes to learning, but when I get it, watch out. Knowing that I take time and trying to stay as underwhelmed as possible when it comes to running a business has saved me during a freak out. Take my advice and stay away from the comparison, use your own road map + enjoy the journey.
