The Dangerous Game of Comparison in Network Marketing

Stop comparing yourself to other network marketers. The game of comparison is dangerous for your business. We’re all different and we’re all on our own journey.

Most home business owners will look at other successful home business owners and start comparing. Well maybe Julie got 10 sign ups her first week in business and you have been in a month and haven’t gotten any. There starts the comparison. There starts your belief that you aren’t as good, and there starts the belief that you’re gonna fail.

As a result, your self-esteem is lowered, doubt creeps in your mind, and you start to second guess the business. It is a dead end road that leads to failure.

We are all designed to be good at different things, with different personalities. Some people are good at time management, some are not. Some are good at keeping organized. Some are not. Some are great leaders, some are better at serving. Some have developed more skill through training and others have not gotten that far yet. You cannot compare those things.

So, if you want to succeed in business, then stop comparing yourself to the other network marketers. Definitely stop comparing yourself to the top earners if you’re new. The only person you need to compare yourself to is the person you were yesterday.

Also, you probably don’t know their whole story. Maybe if someone signed up 10 their first week, maybe they talked to 500 to get there. Maybe you only talked to 10.

You don’t know how much rejection they got, how much work they did, or what struggles they had to overcome in order to reach that number.

You most likely already have enough pressure in life. Do not put this added pressure on yourself. My advice is to study the successful people, find out what they learned to become successful, find systems and strategies that can speed up the process, never give up, stay consistent and stop comparing yourself to other people.

I want to leave you today with the famous words of Dr. Suess. “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

So be yourself, work your business and stop comparing.
