The Toxic Comparison / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast
Greetings and welcome to the Creative Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative Boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.
There's ALWAYS going to be someone who does more business than you. The toxic comparison starts when you begin to compare yourself and think, "I'll never be there, why should I even try?" Smash toxic comparisons.
When I was a new agent, I struggled. I didn't make a penny for almost a year. Some of the best advice I received during that time was to nurture the people that trust me and do not compare. Focus on and nurture the basket of eggs you have (and don't worry about those you don't).
Along with stopping comparisons in their tracks and nurturing what's in front of you, I implore you to work. Results are directly related to the amount of work we put in. For every hour you work successfully in your twenties and thirties, you multiply later in life.
Let's smash those toxic comparisons together, friends. Here's this week's episode of the Creative Entrepreneur Podcast.
Golden Nuggets from this episode:
[02:19] “no matter how far up or down the ladder we are, we can't help but compare ourselves to people who are above or people who are bellow.”
[03:00] “there is always going to be someone that does more business than you, And conversely is always going to be someone that does less business than you”
[05:10] “10 million dollar houses very rarely get sold but there are hundreds of 1 million dollar houses that gets sold all the time”
[07:26] “I don't look at look at contacts as deals I look contacts as people and people refer people if they like you and I trust you!”
[09:35] “the commodity that fuses with time beautifully ia a work ethic”
Thanks for being here,
