“If you want to be incrementally better: Be competitive. If you want to be exponentially better: Be cooperative.” — Unknown
Competition comes from a scarcity mentality. In a soccer game there may only be able to be one winner, but this is seldom true in almost any other area of life. In business there are certainly many more than one customer; in creating or inventing there is more than one idea. For resources of people, money or energy there is always more than one source; and for recognition there are so many opportunities to go around..
In truth, there is no competition, unless it exists in your own mind. Spirit is infinite, so how can there be competition for resources, recognition, or success? In an Infinite Universe there is enough to go around. Try moving from competition to collaboration. You’ll be amazed at how much more relaxed life can be.
Reflection: Where does my belief in scarcity show up as a sense of competition. How could I cooperate instead?
Affirmation: I know there is enough, and more than enough of everything I need for my success. I no longer fear or engage in competition. I cooperate with the Universe for my, and others, highest good.
