Avoiding the comparison trap

comparison trap

Getting caught in the comparison trap literally steals your money. You end up spending money on things you didn’t originally want or need until you saw someone else had it.

And it happens to all of us, repeat: All of us. You’re not excluded. (Neither am I!)

You don’t have to be driving a fancy car you can’t afford or taking vacations on credit cards to fall into the trap. It can be smaller than that, it can be sneakier than that.

In this video, you will learn why the comparison trap is bigger than ever, and steps you can take to recognize and avoid it.
