Marketing Perspective

Magical Unicorns and the Comparison Trap


There is a danger that exists for all of us regardless of whether we are trying to launch a business, accomplish something great, or simply get ahead in life…

It’s the Comparison Trap.

We’re all guilty of it… that temptation to compare ourselves to others… to try and judge our own success based on the success of someone else.

Don’t do it.

Don’t compare your success to the success of others (or what you perceive as their success). You are unique, your purpose is unique and your success might look different than theirs. As Seth Godin says, only compare yourself to the uncomparable, like a Magical Unicorn. : )
