We’ve all faced it at one point or another. The idea, right or wrong, that we don’t stack up well against the competition, that we don’t stand out amongst our peer group. This can be a debilitating attitude that permeates our every business action with negativity and unease.
Tina Gammon of Scalable Social Media aptly describes this conundrum in one of her latest articles. Understanding the value of your own additions to your own company and to the social sphere is key to combatting this mindset.
Every successful business owner has worked their tail off to get where they are. Yes, they may be in a different place than you are currently, but that’s not an indication of your success or lack thereof.
While it may seem a bit too pat to state that a positive attitude conquers all, I get tired of those trite memes and blog posts, too, there’s definitely something to be said for measuring your own accomplishments by your specific yardstick – rather than feeling you aren’t competing with the rest of the world.
