I always love sharing this with clients to help them debunk the competition myth.
Competition is a false idea that stems from a focus on lack and scarcity. A false idea that drives us to believe we have to one-upmanship each other in order to deserve and attain the success we desire.
Unfortunately we live in a rather obliging Universe, which by the law of attraction lines up events and circumstances to prove that our beliefs and ideas are right. That's why the most competitive people have to compete so hard to get what they want!
Fortunately, by the very same law of attraction, a shift in our focus and awareness can lay to rest the idea that we have to compete to get our own, and turn the tides of EASE and abundance in our favour.
The first step in changing that awareness is to consider this:
1) The Universe is no respecter of persons - there is no favouritism.
The Substance from which all material wealth is brought forward is available to each one of us equally and The Laws apply to everyone equally.
Your manifestation of abundance is based purely on your ability to perceive prosperity instead of lack and anyone can increase their prosperity consciousness so they may rise above constraining circumstances. With this understanding in mind, next...
2) Train your awareness on success.
Seek evidence of it in your life and celebrate it - no matter how big or small. This will align you with the energy of success and attract more of it to you.
And if you have no laurels of your own to stand on, appreciate other people's successes as if they were your own. That is what got me through the scary, lean, panty-twisting first months of my coaching practice. In fact, the first time I signed a coaching client was after spending a whole day celebrating a friend's big win in filling her coaching practice.
Instead of going into a compete-and-compare mode, I was determined to align myself with the truth of abundance, and so I treated her success as though it was my own, and in the end... it was!
3) Know that you have a UNIQUE and valuable contribution to make.
Focus your attention on becoming the best at your job or business and provide the highest quality and value-add for your clients. And be the best at what you do in your own unique way.
When you appreciate your gifts and talents, and allow your unique way of doing things to shine through, you will never have to compete with anyone.
4) Take inspired action.
Listen to the intuitive prompting from within for guidance as to the right action to take so that you may be united with the clients (or jobs or any good for that matter) that are rightfully yours. Hey, sometimes NO action is required on your part - the right people just find you! (After all, what you seek, seeks you too.)
So, next time you find yourself wondering if there is enough to go around, go within andalign your thoughts and emotions with ideas of 'plenty'.
No coveting and no competing loved ones - your Good is available for you and only you, and it is waiting on you to call it forth.
