Seeing just how many other people do what you do or sell what you sell can be terribly depressing… if you let it.
Don’t get me wrong, it happened a lot to me (and I can still have my moments).
The moment when you see what seems like a million people posting the same services or similar goods to you.
How about the moment you see “competitors” getting sales left, right and centre… while you’re struggling to just get your next one?
Or the moment you find yourself comparing your work and coming up short?
It can be easy to fall into the trap of thinking, “well, I might as well give up now!”, or “they’re all so much better than me!”.
If you are having a problem making sales or getting seen, I guarantee this is because of a disconnect within your business and NOT because of your so-called "competition".
I have learnt from wonderful coaches that an abundance mindset is key to success. In other words, there is plenty of work for everyone.
There is NO competition.
You just need the strategy and belief to achieve the success you seek.
Yes, there may be hundreds, or even thousands, of other people who sell the kind of thing that you sell.
But not a single one of them is you.
Not a single one of them has your story.
You are unique, with a unique message.
THAT is what people are buying: they buy your why, not your what.
My clients choose me because they identify with me and the content I put out there.
Other people might choose someone else because they identify more with them, and that’s totally fine.
This is why it’s so important to post more than your services.
Open up, share, and tell people WHY they should buy from you.
Stop looking at others, focus inwards and do YOUR thing.
Have you ever considered what makes you connect with some bloggers and business owners, and not others? Do you identify with me? Why? Let me know in the comments!
