The only competition you’ll ever have is the competition
between your disciplined and your undisciplined mind.
I know we’ve discussed this previously.
Yet, the distinction between creation and competition is so powerful that it absolutely cannot be over emphasized.
Countless so-called marketing gurus have asked me, “Who is your competition?” I instantly reply, “I don’t have any.”
They think I’m kidding.
I know what they mean. They don’t know what I know.
To compete is to compare and to “fight” for limited resources. As we’ve discussed previously, there are no limited resources.
The only limitation that exist are the self-imposed
limitations of your own small thinking.
When Steve Jobs was interviewed post his creation of the iPad, he was asked, “Did you poll your customers to come up with this idea?” He replied, “No. It’s not the customers job to decide what he wants and needs, it’s the entrepreneurs job to create that need.”
Drop the mic.
This brings us to our next principle in our series of the Leader Master-Mind:
The true Leader must always and only stay in the Creative Mind and continuously focus on more increase for himself, and for all he is blessed to serve.
Think about this (and really think), when you’re competing and comparing you’re focusing on your so-called competitors’ best effort.
Therefore, the best you can ever hope for is to duplicate, or maybe slightly improve upon, their best effort. Energy flows where attention goes.
Research proves that unless you’re highly unusual you will basically have the same life as your parents have or had. With maybe a little improvement.
Damn that sucks, doesn’t it?
What are you going to do about it?
Problem solving is the problem.
A medical industry focusing on disease versus health
is doing nothing more than creating more disease.
Leaders don’t problem solve, they create new opportunities.
Furthermore, when competing, you’re not focusing on more increase for yourself and others. To compete necessitates that for you to win, someone else must lose.
This is once again the limited pie, limitation and lack mentality that disconnects you from the abundant universe of which you’re a part.
Multiple Worlds theory tells us that everything is already here.
You don’t have to create anything. That’s God’s job; and he’s done it well.
You just must choose to participate in one of the options.
Limitation, or Abundance? It’s your choice.
You may have heard it said that if you want to make a million dollars you must solve a million-dollar problem.
This might be true.
But if you want to make a billion dollars you have to think differently.
Like Jobs, you must create a new billion-dollar desire and need.
No one ever asked Elon Musk for Tesla or SpaceX…
No one ever asked Zuckerberg for Facebook…
No one ever asked Sergey Brin and Larry Page for Google…
No one ever asked Jeff Bezos for Amazon…
No one ever asked Travis Kalanick for Uber.
The list goes on.
If you want to be a True Leader and world changer you must break free from the competitive mind and consistently stay in the creative mind.
But then again, you should know by now that if it’s easy it’s certainly not great!
Be a Leader. Live Your Purpose; and Take Your Power Back!
