Stop comparing yourself to people like Gary Vaynerchuk, Tony Robbins et. al
Comparison is the thief of joy. For reals. Who said it? Bonus points for dropping the name in the comments.
But my point is — when you’re working in your new biz or on your product, or comparing yourself to someone like Gary Vaynerchuk or Tony Robbins, Danielle LaPorte, Marie Forleo, etc. and other public figures/success stories you are selling yourself SHORT.
They worked their butts off to get where they are. I 100% know for a fact they are are not overnight success stories. They didn’t start with a million dollars in their bank accounts. They started with no audience and slowly built their tribes by putting the work in.
If you are going to keep worrying about what other people are doing, you won’t have time to focus on how you’re going to be doing. Celebrities in my opinion blindside us into thinking we need to be like them.
Let that sink in. You do not need to be the next Gary Vee of motivational speakers or the next Russell Branson of Click Funnels. (Who is apparently a crazy racist mormon cult leader)
These people are here to simply show you a way to be better. They position themselves in a way where they give 99% of their content for free because they can afford to work with less clients + their 1:1 programs/clients convert so well they give most of their stuff online for FREE. But, they worked and worked until they could do that.
You want to do that too? Yes, me too.
So how are you better? What amazing idea do you have that is going to make an impact in the world? If you’re only in it for the money, you will lose. You need to incite passion in people.
The number one thing I have learned after being a full-time entrepreneur in a year is that I AM UNIQUE. Not even Gary Vee has my gifts. I bet he can't design a flyer if his life depended on it.
My point: No one is like you. So milk your skills.
