Entrepreneurs: What One of the Biggest Business Mistakes You Can Make? Find Out!

It happens. We get sucked in the trap of looking at other entrepreneur's Facebook pages, Instagram and Twitter accounts. We check how many followers they have, the likes on their status and how many tweets they got that day. If we don't match up we freak out. Then the dreaded question pops in our head: "How are they so much more successful than me?" 

We let someone else's success minimize our own and self-doubt trickles in. This is a severe time-waster as an entrepreneur. Every minute you spend worrying about someone else's success is one less minute you contribute to your own. Find a way to use someone's success story to motivate you. If you can't do that, there's an unfollow button, click it! Don't let jealousy win. 

As my grandmother said, "Jealousy is a useless emotion."
