It seems like everyday of life there is this system of comparison. Comparison to neighbors, friends, politicians and celebrities and people we don’t even know on social media. It can be disheartening to feel as though in life you are always at a deficit, not pretty enough, not rich enough and not perfect enough.
I have realized through life and especially through my entrepreneurial journey that life is about the journey. I know your like okay Victoria “ life is a journey , blah , blah , blah”, but here me out how many people are prepared for the destination if they don’t even endure the journey?
Would you say to the guy you’ve known for three weeks hey let’s get married, let’s skip past the getting to know each other
, and the part of a relationship when you build trust and lets just get to the “good stuff”, or the “good part”.
Absolutely not you wouldn’t do that, so why would you do that with your life journey?
Trust me I had to learn this lesson, I started this business when I was 17, a few orders not much, bad marketing, being the first one in my family to create a website from scratch, having no guidance on how to start a business, being too young to be taken seriously by a bank for a loan, going into college, going after opportunities and being rejected, having to rebrand my business multiple times till I found my secret formula, did postmates to eat, launched a course nobody bought, wrote and launched an ebook nobody bought, launched tons of products nobody bought, created tons of videos …. You get the picture.
But none of those experiences no matter how crappy they felt, were unnecessary.
Sure I could’ve compared my life to others , well I have no money, or I wasn’t born in a rich family, or I don’t have many followers, or I’m not famous.
Dear Ones, your beautiful journey is meant to be customized, tailored and mapped by you.
You have to create your own blueprint. If you are the first one to do something in your family, or community , or even the first person to create something completely new for humanity, at each level you have to understand the fact that there is no blueprint for visionaries.
So remember that when you think you should compare your uniquely messy, unpredictable, spontaneous , and beautifully curated journey to the next person.
