Monday Motivation for Young Professionals: Why I am Not Worried About My Competition and Neither Should You!

I am not worried about my competion. Want to know why?

Because I know who I am. I also know that everything I am, how I think, how I do things, how I express myself, and the way that I am in the world, is unique to me. The same is true for you.

‘So what,’ you might be thinking. ‘What if you do know who you are? How does that prevent you from worrying about your competition?!’

Great question. Here’s my answer.

The most effective way for me to not worry about my competition is by focusing on me, my business; not my competition. The same is true for you.


Because neither you nor I (nor anybody) has any control over other people. You can only control yourself. By focusing on what is in your control: you, who you are, what you think, what you believe, what you want to create, and how you create in your unique way – you will be motivated and excited to take action, keep moving forward, and make things happen for yourself, in your life, your career, and your relationships.

When you waste time focusing on and worrying about your competition, you run the risk of reacting or responding to whatever it is your competition is doing. You are living for others, and not yourself. When you do this, you will lack innovation and creativity. Your choices will not be unique to you, but rather a response to what someone else is doing. This makes you worry about your competition even more, leaving you, your ideas, and your unique creativity idle. Instead of moving forward, you will slow down, feel anxious, and lose touch with your own inner voice and creativity, and get stuck on your path to creating the now and future that is meant for you; the one only you can create for yourself.

If you want to move forward and be successful in whatever it is you are doing, stop worrying about your competition and focus on you, instead. Get to know who you are, what you think, what you believe, and what you want. These things are unique to you. Stay focused on that, get out of your competition’s ‘business’, and have a blast creating the amazing things you, and only you, are meant to and are capable of creating.
