In this episode of Backstage At Strategic Coach, Dan Sullivan and special guest Suvi Siu discuss Dan’s thinking around how self-comparison is detrimental to entrepreneurial success. Dan believes that “the death of uniqueness is self-comparison” and that honing your own specific, unique talents is the only way to truly protect your confidence and differentiate yourself in the marketplace. Dan sees self-comparison as having two separate parts: the General Narrative (what society tells you about how you should operate in the world) and the Specific Narrative (what is actually true and unique to you). Watch this video to learn how you can develop and feel confident about your own life path and not get pulled down by all the naysayers. By living by your own specific narrative, you naturally capitalize on your uniqueness and create your own success.
