3 Ways Negative Self Comparison Blocks Your Money Flow | Episode 007 of The Woman Entrepreneur PodcastSep 20, 2022
Are You Struggling with COMPARISON-ITIS?
If you are, you're not alone!
It's a common problem for ... well ...
I was on a trail run once with my bestie and she asked me, "What's the number one most common struggle for the entrepreneurs your work with?"
Without having to think for very long, I said, "Negative self-comparison."
In its simplest definition, negative self-comparison is when you believe you're not good enough so you hold other people up on a pedestal (believing they're better than you) and yourself in the pit (believing that you're not as good as them).
This is a BIG PROBLEM for entrepreneurs because like Mark Twain said, "Comparison is the death of joy."
And, if you've been hanging out with me, you know that JOY IS HIGH VIBE and is what helps you make easier money. So, if you're stuck in comparison-itis, then you killing joy and causing resistance in your money flow. We don't want this!
So, let's talk about the 3 ways that negative self-comparison blocks your money flow and how to get unstuck.
Because NEGATIVE SELF-COMPARISON IS LOW-VIBE AND CAUSES RESISTANCE - it blocks money flow in these 3 ways:
1. Creates Doubt in Yourself
When you look at what other entrepreneurs are doing (usually comparing yourself to those who are way ahead of you in the game!) you increase doubt in yourself. And remember DOUBT CAUSES RESISTANCE! Resistance is what creates money flow to slow way down.
2. Causes Perfectionism & Procrastination
When you compare what you're doing to other entrepreneurs (again: usually comparing yourself to those who are way ahead of you in the game!) you will tend toward overly perfecting what you're putting out which causes big-time procrastination. Obviously, when you're procrastinating out of doubt in yourself, you're going to create slower money flow.
3. Makes You Afraid to Charge What You're Worth
When you are struggling with comparison-itis (I feel the need to say it again 😂: usually comparing yourself to those who are way ahead of you in the game!) you will feel less than who you're comparing yourself to which causes you to barter, give away what you have for free, or not charge what you're worth. This is a HUGE issue for Zone 2 entrepreneurs and it's where I see 80% of business builders stuck.
