Comparison to others a gift? What?
You’ve probably been told, like many coaches out there, that comparing your success to the success others have achieved does nothing but steal your joy.
For some people, and some situations, yes.
What I’m inviting you to consider today, though, is an entirely different perspective and a new lens through which you can celebrate the success others have achieved while uncovering your fastest path to growth.

You see, success leaves clues. LOTS of them.
When you’re not allowing yourself to fall into the victim trap but instead take full responsibility for your results, a world of possibilities open up for you. You see that someone else’s success is to be celebrated because it not only proves that you can do it too (proof of concept) but you can model what this person (or business) has done to create the impact that you aspire to.

As you look up the success train and see someone several stations up the track, ask yourself these questions:
Why can’t I grow to the same level (or beyond) of success?
What does she have in place that I don’t?
What is his/her “unfair advantage”?
Which one of these elements am I willing to make progress on in on my own business?
What do the first 3 steps look like?
Two more questions that are just as (if not more) important are these:
Why haven’t I taken action on this in the past?
What underlying story have I allowed to be my “truth” that’s no longer serving me?
If you’re like my client and the story that I shared, getting to the root cause or deep belief is what will ultimately set you free to move forward and take big steps forward. The underlying story (being held as a “truth”) is most commonly one of these.
I’m not good/pretty/smart enough.
No one will pay that amount of money to work with someone like me.
It takes a lot of money to hire a team.
Growth is incremental and requires hard work.
I have to wait until I’m at a [insert income level or any measure of success] before I take action.
What you desire and the success you dream about is on the other side of these stories. Once you reframe and release, you’ll move forward more quickly than you ever imagined. Seek new proof and you’ll be amazed at what you find.
