    Compete vs. Create: Which One Describes Your Business Approach?
    by Megan Mart

    Compete vs. Create:

    Consider these definitions:

    Compete: To contend with another or others for a
    prize, superiority, etc. Syn. vie, rival,
    contest, oppose.

    Create: To cause to come into existence; originate.
    To be the cause of; bring about. Syn. make,
    fashion, form, produce, conceive, invent,

    Which One Describes Your Business Approach?

    Do you feel that you must compete with other businesses?
    Do you strive to conquer the competition? Do you think
    that you need to have an edge over the competition?

    Take a look at all the businesses out there! How on earth
    can You compete with them all? Answer: You don't! You
    can't! Period!

    So why do we listen to statements made about winning out
    over the competition? Because we have come to believe that
    in order to have it all and be successful, we need to
    compete and win to get the top spot. We have the notion
    that there is not enough success or money to go around,
    so we must beat down whatever or whoever gets in our way
    in order to have success.

    To compete with someone, we have to vie with him or her for
    the top spot. Once that top spot is gained (if it ever
    is), we cannot stop! There is always someone
    just waiting to contend with us to take that spot away.

    It is almost certain. If we are only spending our time
    competing with others for success, someday, someone is
    going to defeat us for that success. Then someday
    it will happen to them, and so on.

    Champions that have won the top prize will be replaced
    by someone else who is faster, better or smarter. It
    always happens and it always will. We are left sitting
    in the dust, wondering what happened!?!

    The notion of competition is futile nonsense when it comes
    to our personal or business success. Look at the universe
    around us. There is plenty of everything to go around
    without taking it away from someone else. We live in a
    bountiful world. We do not need to stress out over
    trying to overthrow the competition to gain success.

    We only need to be creative and produce our very own
    success. Not try and steal it away from someone else.
    Sure we can watch and learn from those around us who
    are successful, and we should, but we don't need to
    attempt to overcome them.

    We only need to find our creative vision of success and
    keep it steadfast in our minds, then set about the process
    of making that vision happen. There are plenty of customers
    out there for our product, business or whatever. If we
    use our original creativity, sooner or later, they will
    find us!

    We need to find our own way!

    When we "create" our business with our very own set of
    skills, interests, etc., we are creating something
    of our very own that no one can take away. It is solely

    We need to take the creative approach to business in order
    to make our own place in the world of business a success.

    We do not need to seek after anything that is possessed
    by someone else. We should be using our creativity to
    cause that which we want to be CREATED!
