Don't Compare Yourself To Others

Last Update: May 21, 2018

I've been with WA for a while now, but my progress is a bit slower than I see with others sometimes. I've had quite a few challenges in my life, some of which are ongoing and that has made it impossible to learn and create at a faster pace. Some of the newer members have already seen great success, even though they've only been here for a few months. Good for them.

Now that is just one part of where I and all of us should not compare ourselves to others. We are all different and we are all going at our own pace and have different stories and things happening in our lives. As long as we keep at it, we're succeeding.

The other part where it sometimes gets easy to feel a bit discouraged is when you research your niche and come across well-established websites that seem to have every topic covered and that look amazing and seem to be creating a great amount of traffic.

It's so easy to compare your own website to it, which is coming along nicely, but is just not at that point yet. Yet. They all had to start somewhere.

So instead of being discouraged and throwing in the towel, we should remember to keep doing what we're doing. Keep learning and keep researching and keep writing content, as that is the best way to get to the same point other already successful people and websites are at today.

Onwards and upwards :)

The beauty of learning our craft at Wealthy Affiliate is that we all develop at our own pace. Each step we take we become more confident and competant

We are also unique because we have our own set of skills and talents which will determine our niche. These skills automatically attract a certain percentage of prospects to our website.

Good Morning Petra,

It is now a couple of months that I am on Pinterest. When you check out pins you see a lot of websites. This has made me realize that I can be quite happy with the looks of my 2 websites

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske.
