This really spoke to me. From a business standpoint there is always competition, but having a great business is also about being creative and standing out amongst the crowd. If you are not looking for a competition amongst other like-minded businesses, then you are probably going to be more successful than if you have negative thoughts about it all and see every situation that you are in as something you must do better than everyone else -- like you must win at all costs. Imagination and creativity don't flow as freely in a negative environment, and they can't be tied down. Do what you do the best that you can -- and even better than that -- and you'll find that you are a true winner.
I sound like a mom. And now that we've talked ourselves into being the best -- and better-than-that -- that we can be, let's conquer Monday!
