How do you like today’s title? Are you curious, wondering, “What the heck is Kyle talking about? I compete with people all the time.”
What’s up everyone? Kyle, here, and you read it right … There really is no such thing as competition … IF you adopt the right mindset. And that’s what we’re going to be talking about today. To be your best, you need to shake a competition mindset and I’ll show you how to do that. I’ll also show you how to take the energy and confidence you’d spend worrying and spin it toward other more productive tasks. Let’s dive in, shall we?
What’s in the show:
- When people say they’re your competition this is what they’re actually doing and it has very little to do with you … (3:03)
- You’re stacked! No, I don’t mean you’re layered in bulging muscle (though maybe you are, and if so, congratulations). I mean your unique skills that raise you beyond a competition mindset … (3:55)
- Dogs don’t bark at parked cars. If your “competition” is talking you must be moving … (5:50)
- The emotions that drive a competition mindset and how to recognize them welling inside you … (6:39)
- The difference in your brain between visualization and reality, and how worrying messes with your mind … (7:30)
- If you want to compete with someone, be your own competition … (9:15)
I heard a quote the other day that I thought was pretty cool –and it relates to today’s topic pretty well. The quote said, “The only person you should try to be better than is the one you were yesterday.” Of course that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try or that you shouldn’t push yourself to succeed. It simply means you should only use comparisons with others as a healthy gauge for where you are versus where you want to be and what you need to do to get there. Remember, comparison is the thief of happiness.
