Competition Makes You Better
The rival between Walker and her rival reminded me of professional basketball players Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. The men were so competitive and wanted to win so badly that they put forth every effort to invest in themselves and be the best they could be.
They pushed themselves harder, they set higher goals, they studied their competition relentlessly, looking for the smallest opening to increase their chances of success. Each wanted to do everything they could to win, including pushing those around them to be better.
In the end, these men appreciated the other for their skill, talent, and drive. Action: Who are your biggest rivals. What are they doing that is elevating their brand? What partnerships and relationships do they have? How can you create similar connections and opportunities?
Competition is a great motivator and it can push you to become the best version of yourself. It can help you to become more creative, determined, and focused on achieving your goals. When you see your competitors doing better than you, it can be a great incentive to work harder and invest more in yourself.
Competition should not be seen as an enemy but rather as an opportunity to learn from each other and grow together. Your competitors are your ladder to success; they provide valuable insights into what works and what doesn't in your field of expertise. By understanding what works for them, you can adjust your strategy accordingly and reach new heights of success.
