How to Stop the Business Comparison Game

“Comparison is the thief of joy.”

At my lowest points in my life and in my business, I have been the saddest when I’ve compared my business progress, myself, or anything in my life to somebody else. Can you relate? 

If you’re wondering how to stop that destructive and defeating pattern… let’s have a conversation. 

First, you must analyze and assess how you are seeing what people are putting out. In fact, let me share a personal example of this.

How to Stop the Business Comparison Game

Last week I decided to break a little bit of my social media patterns. What did this look like? 

Well, I was still showing up for my business. I was still posting Stories, posts in my feed, answering DM’s, and I was still going Live, but… I wasn’t scrolling. 

I know… easier said than done, right? 

When I got on social media, I made a point to go solely as a business owner. I wasn’t going on social media to consume. I created, but I did zero consumption

I wasn’t scrolling on Stories, feeds, or watching Reels. For one whole week, all I did was put my post out, and then I walked away. 

Let me tell you, it was such a good break! 

Now, I’m back in consumption and catching up on all the things, but the difference is that I’m in a better headspace than before. 

Here’s my [Loving] kick in the pants for you: 

>>If you want to stop comparing yourself to other people, Influencers, or businesses because it leaves you feeling like you’re not doing or good enough, you need to stop consuming their content.<<

Think of it this way: You feel sick, but you keep drinking the poison and then wonder why you still feel sick. 

Friend, stop drinking the poison that’s leaving you and your business feeling sick, defeated, and unmotivated. 

My advice is not that deep, but I promise you it’s effective. Figure out what poison is making you feel sick, and stop consuming it. 

*Yes, it’s really that simple!*

I know what you may be thinking: “But Jasmine, I have to. It’s part of my business. I have to go to social media.”

Okay, but do you have to consume the way you currently are? Can you just create and ONLY engage with what’s within your profile? Perhaps not all the time, but any time you need a detox?

If you can do that, I know it will benefit your mindset and your business. And that, my friend, is a game-changer. 

In fact, I believe everything you need to not only help you build a stronger mindset but to master a 6-Figure Social Media Mindset is in this month’s marketing action plan inside Social Curator.
