Because other models do better than me and how to avoid this affecting my career

The reality is that there are two important factors to mention regarding the question: Why do others do better than me? That it insistently corrodes the life of many models.

They do better, first of all, because you think about it (mentality). They do better second in the aspects that you see convenient to compare (what you see is not always what it seems). They do better, thirdly, because they are probably paying a cost that you do not assume (investment when hiring professional services). And they do better, ultimately, because they may have had some exceptional condition to start the professional journey (they move and sell their services).

Why don't comparisons work?

The reality is that there are two important factors to mention regarding the question: Why do others do better than me? That it insistently corrodes the life of many models.

1. It is not wrong to ask yourself the question and try to answer it. Those recommendations from non-professionals in the sector that suggest dismissing the question as useless do not help much. For those who basically care about a competitive profile it is natural and important to make comparisons with people who are dedicated to the fashion and advertising sector professionally and all the time.

2. In any case, what is wrong is to give importance to the subject and consider it a determining factor of its own evaluation. As in everything in the business world, without investment there is no consideration.

Competitiveness is not measured in terms of comparisons with others. The Results are those that must be compared, and in strict consideration of contextual factors, present and past.

The mind of a competitive model considers the result as a product of its performance, never the performance of others.

Is it a frequent case to see an athlete competing in a high-speed race, look left and right while running ?, Right, no, and that his eyes are fixed on the goal. Because if you did it differently you would lose the ability to focus on the best result. When the road is over, you can evaluate work and effort and make comparisons. From the competition, never while the race is taking place.

After the very act of competing for a year, investing in the quality of your portfolio / book, sending thousands of emails and meeting with different agencies and producers in person, the possibility of wondering why others do better ? Never while it is taking place. Because you either act or reflect on the very character of your actions.

Now, it is easy to see, on social networks, when it comes to a day-to-day career, but how does this logic work when the career is long-term and paid, or when in fact it is indefinite? Do you have to constantly look at others and compare yourself? NOT.

For whom you want to optimize and improve your actions and your modeling career, the demand is the same: to evaluate the result of your service, not that of others.

The recommendation is based on a simple fact: in practice it is impossible to be objective in comparisons with others. Your own judgment weighs heavily, the gaze with which you look at things. And in comparisons that gaze is usually pawning for frustration, ambition, desire, envy, and impatience. There is no natural and effective formula to clean it up and be completely objective, honest and honest with yourself.

Are you sure "They are doing better"?

For this reason, first of all "the other models do better" because you say so.

It does not respond to any objective criteria.

Professional life, and life in general, is a long-running race, not a test of speed. Comparisons cannot be made in short periods of time or short stretches of space / time. In life you are doing better today and you are doing worse tomorrow, that's the way it happens to everyone, without exception of one, not even “that one or those” with whom you measure things at the moment.

When then is the final evaluation done?

Possibly the only reasonable evaluation can be made when the "race" ends. But if this event is life itself, is there any use in making a comparison when it is all over? Was life gone in an absurd effort to compare things on the road?

"They are doing better" because they are paying a cost

Because they are paying a cost that you don't want to assume. It is entirely possible! At least at the reasonably objective juncture that is being measured.

You must understand that people achieve better or worse results than others especially for the cost they pay for the results, not necessarily due to Fitness or chance.

It is good that in this life everyone learns to respect basically who pays the costs of the state they want to achieve. Each one receives the Value proportional to the cost borne.
