Avoiding the trap of comparing our entrepreneurial journeys with others

We all know the feeling as entrepreneurs - there is often the temptation to look around at what others are doing, how successful their businesses have become within a certain timeframe or location, where they are on their entrepreneurial journeys in comparison to ourselves - its a natural reaction. However, it’s important to remember that each one of our businesses is unique to us as individual entrepreneurs - they have been created as a result of our passions, our skills, and our own approach to building our businesses and brands. No one company is the same as another. So, if you are tempted to make a direct comparison with other entrepreneurs, remember the quote by Bill Gates: “Don’t compare yourself with anyone in this world…if you do so, you are insulting yourself.” Advice to think about this morning!
