[22.] Comparison [Creativity Blocker Pt. 1]
Show Notes

[Resources mentioned in show linked below] As a photographer, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the constant comparison to others in the industry. The constant influx of images on social media platforms can make it seem like everyone else is doing better, booking more clients, and creating more stunning work. It's a common struggle for photographers to feel jealous of their peers and to compare their own work to others.

However, this comparison is not productive and can actually hold you back from reaching your full potential. It's important to remember that everyone's journey is different and that success is NOT measured by the number of followers or likes you have.
