Am I Obsolete? -TPS264

Recently, while listening to a podcast with two young and successful entrepreneurs, I reflected on the numbers of enthusiastic entrepreneurs who have entered the business world. With all of the tools the Internet has to offer and the numerous coaches available to give business owners helpful advice, I wondered if I’m obsolete. In this episode, I share my thinking – and conclusion – and how important it is not to compare yourself to others.


  • It’s still apparently true that only 20% of small businesses succeed.
  • I’m not in a hurry to get rich.
  • There’s a depth of understanding that only comes with long-term experience.
  • If you are trying to achieve what someone else has achieved, there’s a good chance you’re missing your own mission.
  • These days, so many seem to be in a hurry to get rich – to achieve.
  • We are hardwired to compare ourselves to others.
  • We can ask ourselves if comparing ourselves to others serves us. It may serve as a motivator.
  • Find some feeling goals rather than doing goals.
  • Does owning more really have meaning for you?
  • Any time you compare yourself to someone else, you are making assumptions about their levels of satisfaction and what they feel.
  • What is your level of satisfaction and happiness? How loved and connected do you feel?
  • Try never going through a yellow light in order to slow down.
  • I realized that I’m not obsolete, I’ve just reached a different stage in life.
  • When you open up by slowing down, more opportunity can come your way.
  • Fear makes you stupid. So if you are in an adrenal space, you can’t make good decisions.
  • We live in stressful times and stress is one of the major causes of chronic disease.
  • If you want to avoid chronic disease, lower your stress levels.
  • Learning to feel satisfied in the moment is an important skill.
  • Find out what works for you!
  • What are you doing to take a break?
