In today’s BusinessMinds featured article we’re going to discuss a big reason you’re probably getting down on yourself and what you can do to stop it.
Let’s get started!
We live in a fast paced society and with the wonders of technology it’s now possible to access information from all corners of the globe within seconds. We can spend hours researching the topics that fascinate us or find the answers to complex problems in the blink of an eye. Anything you want to know is at your fingertips. Forget about the Dewey decimal system – just Google it – or have Siri do it for you.
These wonders of technology aren’t limited to gathering information for learning purposes. We can use our devices to gather all sorts of information. Do you want to know what your friends are doing? All you have to do is check out their social media profile and you’ll get minute by minute updates on everything from how the barista put way too much cream in the coffee this morning to the strange noises coming from the co-worker in the next cubicle.
Now I know you’re not using social media for gossip. You’re beyond that. You’re using it to follow leaders in your industry, subscribe to noteworthy podcasts, and read articles written by the experts. You want to see what the influencers and rock stars are doing. After all, they are the ones making it happen every single day. They are the ones getting featured in the major media and people sing their praises across social sites. When the names of industry experts and rising stars are mentioned it’s always those few names that will surface. And aren’t you just a little curious to know where you stand compared to the greats?
But has this ever happened? After reading those stories and seeing the same people collect victory after victory, you start feeling a little depressed. Not enough to ruin your day but just enough to dampen your mood a bit. I mean, how are they so successful and what exactly are they doing that you aren’t? Heck, even some of your colleagues who started around the same time as you are shining much brighter these days. There has to be something wrong here.
Recently I tackled this issue and a few others during a live video broadcast for our private online community.
