A Helpful Perspective On Comparison In Business [my numbers]

helpful perspective on comparison in business with Annie Miller

Comparison. Feeling behind. Not having your “story” yet. All very normal things in any facet of life – especially in fitness and business.

You’ve heard all the quotes. “You can’t have the 100th without the 1st,” “Don’t compare your 1st year with my 5th year.” They’re cliche AF but SO TRUE.

My hope today is not to assume you’d ever compare yourself to me, or define what I have done as “successful.” That’s all subjective. But I want to provide perspective. And in viewing these numbers, remember that your year 6 will not look like mine.

You’re on YOUR journey, not mine. You’re right where you need to be.

And I am still going.

Know how many reps you’ve put in, and know that you likely have A LOT MORE quality reps to complete before feeling ______ (qualified, successful, enough).

You’re qualified now (to share what you know).

You’re successful now.

You’re enough now.

Your story is growing day by day, lift by lift, post by post, client by client. Answering the same questions, writing on the same topics, reframing the same concept over and over, on repeat. This is how you become “an expert.” It’s also how you build confidence. There’s no need to fall into the comparison trap.

Know where you’re at today, put your blinders on, and keep going. One rep at a time. Tell ‘em Annie sent ya.
