There is enough success to go around!


We get twitchy about it.

We want it, but we secretly don’t want others to have it.

Because we are afraid they will steal our success.

Guess what?

They won’t.


Did you hear me?

I’m not sure you are paying attention.

I am going to repeat this one.


You do not need to fear your competition. You do not need to worry.  You do not need to doubt yourself.

You can succeed. Your competition can succeed.  You can BOTH be successful.

Be the best you you can possibly be. Aim high. Reach further. Do your best. Succeed by being YOU.  If someone else comes along and does something similar to you? ROLL WITH IT. Life will have competition. Learn from your competition. Get along with your competition. Because, guess what? You can both be successful. In fact, you will probably both me MORE successful when you cheer one another one.

This past weekend St. Anthony’s triathlon was held in Tampa Bay.  One of the things I love the most about this race is that, despite the competition, everyone wants the other athletes to SUCCEED.  There is no me vs. you. There is no trash talking or bad mouthing the other triathletes.  Just support and encouragement.

That is what we need throughout life.  Let go of jealousy, fear, anxiety, etc. surrounding success.

Root for your competition.
Encourage them to do their best.

We can all succeed.

What do you think?

Can you love your competition?

    I believe in supporting others, because if you work hard, that good karma will come back to you ten-fold.
