The truth about competion : Us vs who we think we are competing with
We live in a time where everyone thinks someone is out to copy their ideas or watching their every moves . We also live in a time where it’s been planted as a right of passage To go against each other instead of working together. News flash the truth is we should only be competing wiith ourselves.
”You become what you believe. You are where you are today in your life based on everything you believed. “- Oprah Winfrey
When our competition becomes the focus of side eyeing anyone who “WE” think is trying to take all of our ideas , because We” invented everything lol (Girl you are not alone ). The end result will have you worrying about what the next person is doing . You will lose focus on your next move .
when it comes to competing, I would be the first to admit that I am harder on myself than I actually need to be if we are being 100% honest. I recently was trying to pin point it back to where it all started .So far I can only remember maybe me being 9 or 10 years old . As I continue to invest in myself what I am realizing is I cannot do everything on my own . In my mind I am Superwoman but in reality it is impossible. If we getting for real for real I am not designed to.My new approach comes in two parts First is this something I can improve .Second is what do I need to stop giving so much attention to.
“Do the one thing you think you cannot do .Try again . Do better the second time. The only people who never mount the high wire. This is your moment Own It.”
Right now make a commitment to be exactly who you want to be and plan how you are going to get there. When you are competing with yourself no one can ever come into your lane. As you refocus on your competition here are a few things to keep in mind .
The magic is YOU
Baby you are the special sauce , the secret ingredient, the one that they save for special occasions. Own your power, anything you focus or put your mind too you can achieve. It does not matter if the person on the side of you may seem poppin, have more followers than you or whatever else you are telling yourself it’s a lie . The only difference is if you are willing to try or stay on the slide line and keep on wishing . Tap into your strengths and make it happen.
Believe that it is already Yours
Sis walk it like it’s already yours. You got to put some purpose behind that prayer. If you do not believe you cannot expect someone else to believe in you. Competition is really a big form of Belief mixed with showing up everyday and telling yourself you can do this.
There is so much outside nose that you can get lost in the chatter. When you find yourself drifting always ask yourself is this going to get my one step closer to my goals . Although it seems tempted we must focus on what’s important. Your only competition is becoming a better version of the person you were yesterday .
